Roosevelt Regional Leadership Guide

How to Manage the RI Chapter Leader Facebook and Loft Space


The Roosevelt Regional Leadership Guide is designed to help you understand what is the purpose, and how to manage the national Roosevelt Institute Chapter Lead Loft Space and Facebook group- by controlling access, encouraging students to use the resource, and becoming the editor of the following two sections: the “Roosevelt Resources” and “Chapter Leaders' Shared Resources” sections on Loft. Both the Facebook group (see mockups in Files Section) and Loft spaces (Roosevelt Chapter Leadership Guide) were created to be used as an internal resource for Chapter Leaders to stay connected nationally, share documents, recruitment materials, and connect with other Chapter Leaders for support. Chapter Leaders are encouraged to submit their own Chapter resources onto the space, they will do this by emailing them to you for review. After review and providing feedback, when the resource is edited, you may post it to the Chapter Leaders' Shared Resources section on Loft. This is not only a feedback mechanism, but also an informal way to review your Chapter Leaders initial areas for improvement.

Learning Objectives 

By the end of the session you, the Chapter Coordinator, will be able to:   

  • Direct students interested in starting a Roosevelt Chapter to the Loft and Facebook site
  • Connect Chapter Leaders from across the nation onto a single platform, encourage them to browse resources and ask each other questions 
  • Upkeep and share a centralized system to keep up to date Regional and Chapter-specific files
  • Encourage interested Chapter Leaders to use the space as a recruitment and activity ideation board
  • Encourage existing Chapter Leaders to leverage the resource by submitting their internal Chapter documents for editing and review. After review and resubmission, you can post the files onto the “Chapter Leaders' Shared Resources” Loft
