Requirements of Membership

How to Become a Member

Sophomores and Juniors with a 3.2 or higher cumulative grade point average are eligible to apply for membership after the end of the first semester.  The fee for membership is $20.  Students who meet the membership requirements must attend the induction ceremony, typically held in March or April.  After students become active members, they are responsible for following all rules of membership and completing the required community service.  Conditions of membership are below.

 

Service Hour Rules

1.  A minimum of 15 hours of community service must be completed during the academic year.  If the service is not completed, membership will be revoked.

2.  Of these hours, a minimum of 5 hours must be completed through Beta Club sponsored activities.

3.  If the member completes service that is not Beta sponsored, they must complete a “Service Authorization Form” prior to completing the service.  They must get an approval signature from Mrs. Hackney, or the service will not be counted.  This form will be turned in along with the service verification form AFTER completing the service activity.

4.  The member must turn in all service verification forms within one month of completing the service.

Note:  Things that will not count as community service include tutoring, babysitting, yard work, church activities, etc.  If you are in doubt, ask Mrs. Hackney. 

 

Other Club Rules

1.  To maintain membership, your cumulative GPA cannot drop below 3.2.

2.  Beta meetings are mandatory.  Failure to attend meetings can result in your membership being revoked.

3.  To run for an office, you must be a member in good standing.
