The International Office will be closed on Friday, October 20, 2017 due to our water being shut off.  We will reopen on Monday, October 23, 2017 @ 8:30 A.M. CST. 
Sorry for the inconvenience.



ATTENTION:  Several chapters have received a letter from the IRS saying they had received previous letters and not responded, they hadn't received previous letters, and if they didn't, they were in danger of losing their tax exempt status.  The problem is that we are NOT TAX EXEMPT.  So this does not apply to us or our chapters.  We are checking with our Tax experts to see if we need to take any action but in the meantime, don't panic and don't take any action, you have no tax exemption to lose.

***New requirement changes to International Award of Distinction:
Years ago. Bill made a change to the IAD rules so that multiple members in a town or state could not get the honor if another member had gotten it within 3 years.  We understand the reasoning, but those of us who didn't think it was fair before, still don't think it is fair, so the Executive Coordinating Committee voted to allow any member who can fulfill the requirements to get it as they become eligible and not hold anyone back in this way.  It is unfair to members who might be in ill health and to those who didn't get theirs in first and are forced to wait.  We will no longer have this restriction.  However, in order to make sure those who receive this honor are members of the highest standing and dedication, we will be strengthening the other requirements. ***

 Important Announcements!

Important information about Tax forms:
Some chapters have questions about our tax status.   Beta Sigma Phi is not a tax exempt organization.  Most chapters do not make enough to interest the IRS and what they do make they spend on deductible expenses.  We do not need to fill out the 990 form as that is for TAX EXEMPT organizations, we have a statement from our accountants about that on the download page.  If you have questions as to whether your chapter or council should file tax forms, please contact a local tax consultant.   Historically, most chapters don't make enough to be considered but only you all know how much your chapter makes so no blanket statement can cover all chapters.

This year's theme is  In Touch With Tomorrow!

The Torchbearer Degree


Beta Sigma Phi International was excited to announce
the new Torchbearer Degree.
