Duties of Members

 Duties and Responsibilities of NHS Members


• It is required that all candidates become full members through attendance of a formal induction ceremony.  The student receives details of this date and must fill out and sign an RSVP slip to be turned in no later than the announced deadline.


• All members are required to perform fifteen hours of community service during the school year (beginning in the fall). A minimum of four service hours must include school tutoring sessions. Service hours must be documented by an adult supervisor and reported to the chapter advisor.


• Attendance is required at all chapter meetings with the first one being after the induction ceremony. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 a.m. unless previously stated.  An edmodo text will be sent a day or two previous. Promptness is expected. A member is considered absent if he/she arrives more than five minutes late.


• Any member who falls below the standards which were the basis for his/her selection to membership shall be warned in writing by the chapter advisor and given reasonable time to bring up declining standards. If he/she fails to do so, he/she shall face a dismissal hearing and possibly be dropped from the chapter upon recommendation of the Faculty Council.
