December 9th Officer Meeting Agenda

Posted by freshta90 on January 2, 2017 at 1:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Attendance reminders

Officer Attendance Guidelines

· 60 minutes of cumulated unexcused meeting time/term = probation*

· 90 minutes of cumulated unexcused meeting time/term = dismissal as officer

*Probation= 2.5 extra service hours in addition to the required 7.5 hours/term. Officers are only allowed to be on probation once during their senior year. Unexcused meeting time that would result in an additional probationary period will instead result in dismissal as an NHS officer.

***All excused school absences (illness called in by parent, sporting events, or academic competitions) need to be communicated to Ms. Duba as soon as possible so that excused vs. unexcused meeting time can be properly recorded by the secretary (Matt).


T-shirt ideas

Last week we asked members to submit ideas at our upcoming meeting. If you have ideas please submit them as well. We will vote on a t-shirt design at our next chapter meeting on 12/16. The final design needs to be approved by both Ms. Duba AND administration prior to t-shirts being made and ordered. (We will not order until the start of 2nd semester.)

Fundraiser update?

Check with chapter to see when a good date would be

Finals day?

Chapter bonding event for 2nd semester? Open ideas up to group at next meeting like we did last time?

Update on Honor Everyone Banquet… there anything we can do as a chapter to help?
