Service Points Everyone who was on time should have gotten their new card initialed. If you are wearing your pin or t-shirt today, you should have received an extra signature. Only one extra signature…not one for each. How the points system works:
Each member should have received a letter informing you of your membership status. –Active in good standing –Active on probation –Inactive These must be signed and returned to Mrs. Phillips by Wed. Jan. 14
If you have not met the expected grade criteria for two nine weeks, you have been placed on the inactive list.
If your conduct has not promoted the principles of the Creed of Beta Club, you have either been put on probation or you are now an inactive member.
If you have not meet your minimum 15 points requirement for participation you are on probation.
Probation means you will need to meet the expected standard by the end of third nine weeks. ( = 22) If you do not meet this expectation, you will become an inactive member.
