I hope the beginning of school is finding you well. I know we've been quiet, but don't fret we have some exciting things in the works. Keep your eyes peeled on your email for the official announcements of our October events.
This year we will be following the National Chapter's incentive program: five star member plan.
Five Star Member Plan:
Track your membership to success! This document outlines the National Leadership Council’s recognition program for individual members of four-year university chapters.
Members are responsible for keeping track of their star progress. When a member thinks they have reached a level and would like to redeem the stars, the member is responsible for emailing the designated officer a copy of their tracking sheet.
The progress has to be verified by the chapter officers prior to picking up the award.
Five Star Membership Awards can be awarded during events such as the NSCS New Member Induction Ceremony, General Body Meetings, or NSCS Chapter Events.
This plan is meant to aid in tracking the level of individual member engagement. It is also intended to aid in choosing recipients for chapter scholarships such as the Outstanding Scholar Award.
