Dear Chapter Secretaries,
As we enter the second half of another school year, this is a reminder of the steps each Chapter must take any time after March 1st and before July 1st, through the online account. Please login to our website, through the “Members Only” portal and complete the following:
1. Annual Report
2. Induction Registration Report
3. Pay Induction Fees ($10 per inductee)
4. Renew membership ($150 annually)
Each Chapter is also encouraged to submit a paper or other class assignment for one of eight scholarships that are granted each year. District winning paper submissions receive $500 and one national winner will receive $5,000.
My very Best,
Bradley E. Lyman
Registrar General, The Cum Laude Society
