When your chapter screws up, be sure to take control of the situation. That means owning up to your mistakes. Remember, it is always better for the Greek life office to find out about problems in your chapter from you, rather than from other sources. If the situation requires you to report yourself, be sure you are equipped with a clear understanding of why the incident occurred and what you are going to do in the future to ensure it doesn't happen again. Being equipped with a solution to lapses in the risk-management program shows maturity and strength in your leadership. Always strive to be part of the solution.
