Once a Member, always a Member!
I ACCEPT THE INVITATION to become a member in a chapter of Beta Sigma Phi.
I pledge myself to uphold the honor and standards of Beta Sigma Phi and to conduct myself as a loyal member at all times.
I promise to pay Walter W. Ross and Company, Inc. the initial fee of $69.00 U.S. Funds. This will defray all membership fees and annual fees for one year from the date I joined Beta Sigma Phi. Thereafter, I promise to pay annual fees in advance on each anniversary of my joining.
$5.00 of this enrollment will be donated to the Dana Farber Breast Cancer Research Fund and you will receive two breast cancer pins as a thank you in return.
I understand that no portion of the fees is subject to refund.
I understand that the annual fees currently are at $45.00 (U.S. dollars) but that they may be changed by direction of the executive council and that no assessment other than the annual fees will ever be levied.
As long as I am in good standing, I shall be entitled to apply for a transfer to any Beta Sigma Phi chapter in the world, but such transfer shall be subject to approval by the chapter to which application is made. In addition to this provision, transfer between chapters in my own city must have approval of city council.
I agree to participate wholeheartedly in the pledge training program and in the cultural programs published for the chapters of Beta Sigma Phi.
I understand that Beta Sigma Phi is a non-profit corporation and that its executive council consists of the members of the board of directors of Walter W. Ross and Company, Inc., a corporation organized for profit.
I have been informed that all sums paid by me or otherwise paid to the international organization of Beta Sigma Phi, or paid in discharge of the membership fees or annual fees charged or levied by the international organization, are received by Walter W. Ross and Company, Inc. and in exchange, Walter W. Ross and Company, Inc. provides management services for the international organization of Beta Sigma Phi, materials and supplies necessary for its chapters to follow prescribed procedures and rituals, and standard pins and publications for its membership, thereby protecting its membership from any liability for such services, materials and supplies.
I agree to conform to the international constitution and by-laws of Beta Sigma Phi, to the rules and regulations of the executive council for governance of members and chapters, and to the chapter constitution and by-laws of each chapter to which I may be admitted, as the same may be amended from time to time.
***As you submit this enrollment – we WELCOME you as a new pledge to Beta Sigma Phi !! We hope your friendship journey is more than you ever imagined.
Your agreement will be processed and you will be added to the International Roster as a new member without a chapter. As such, your pledge supplies will be mailed directly to you. When you have been invited to join a particular chapter, please have a chapter officer contact the International Office to process your transfer into their chapter. You will then give your pledge supplies to the Vice President of your new chapter to plan your Pledge Ritual and mark the start of your path to continuous friendships.
