Session two: NHS Program Overview and Insights

NHS differs from many student activity organizations as it is governed by a set of very specific guidelines outlined in its national constitution.  Each local chapter should have its own bylaws that may give the chapter its own personality, but the chapter must remain in compliance with the national guidelines.  In this workshop the specifics of selection, induction, retention and dismissal will be shared.  The role of the advisor, principal and faculty council will also be highlighted.  The 10 basic necessities all chapters must adhere to will be discussed.  Connections to new national programs will also be shared.  Advisors attending the workshop will leave with a better understanding of procedures to follow, actions to avoid and how to get answers to questions regarding chapter operation.
