Spring 2014 Memo to Cum Laude Chapter Secretaries

The Chapter Secretary is the primary contact between the central office and the local chapter. It is the Chapter Secretary’s responsibility to handle all Chapter business, file reports, and keep the online account updated of all chapter information (changes in contact information, Chapter Secretary, address, email, phone, etc.). It is highly recommended that more than one person at the Chapter have access to the login/password information in the event of personnel changes.

Pins, Certificates and Seals - Please order your supplies for pins, certificates and seals a minimum of 4 – 6 weeks before the desired receiving date. Orders received during the summer will be held for shipment until late August or early September. We do not ship during the months of June, July or December or during school holidays or breaks. Please plan accordingly. Make sure you are using the online system when ordering supplies and submitting inductee names and reporting. Faxed, emailed or mailed orders will not be processed.
