Induction of New Members

Each local chapter may design and execute an appropriate ceremony for the induction of its new members. The procedures and proceedings for this ceremony shall be determined by the local chapter, the chapter sponsor, and the high school administration. Newly inducted members shall receive their membership certificates and any other appropriate Rho Kappa materials when their membership has been affirmed. In an event that a particular individual qualifies for membership after the date of the induction ceremony, he or she may be induced at a regular chapter meeting provided the membership forms and fees have already been submitted to NCSS.

Induction Fees and form

Each chapter pays an induction fee of $5.00 for each new member to the National office.

Chapters are forbidden to initiate, haze, blackball, or do anything similar, as any part of the RHO KAPPA process. Any chapter found engaged in any of these shall lose its charter. "Induction" is to be used in any reference to the induction of new members.
