The following course is designed to challenge your general notions of operating a DeMolay Chapter and steering it toward success. Here, we will not discuss general mechanics of operating a Chapter as those topics are covered elsewhere, but rather we will entertain a discussion of the theory behind building a sustainable and vibrant Chapter.
