Approximately half of Chi Sigma Iota's active members are professional counselors, and many CSI chapters are finding creative ways to keep alumni involved. In this webinar for chapter leaders, representatives from CSI's Professional Member Committee will discuss how chapters can design workshops and other events, networking and mentoring programs, awards programs, publications, and social networking websites that encourage professional members to remain active in CSI. Specific examples of "best practices" from several CSI chapters will be shared, and the presenters will respond to questions from webinar participants.

Learning Objectives:
