Chapter By-Laws

Section 1. A chapter includes bylaws to amplify sections of its constitution. You can click on the link to the left in the menu to view our constitution. All Wantagh High School Honor Societies recognize and promote excellence both in and out of the classroom. Therefore, when considering a candidate for membership into any of our Honor Societies, a student's adherence to building and district policies and codes of conduct will be reviewed. This includes, but is not limited to, a review of the candidate's discipline record. Failure to maintain the standards that were the basis for membership may result in warning or dismissal.

Section 2. To remain a member in good standing, a member must pay dues and complete 10 service hours in the visual arts each year.

Section 3. Annual dues of $5 will be collected from each member.

Section 4. Attendance is required at meetings to maintain membership and privileges. You may miss a total of 3 meetings per year, but no more than 3 unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Section 5. All members must participate in 3 of our projects, activities, and fundraisers (this can also include community service hours that may not be affiliated with the club).

Section 6. For the NAHS and NJAHS officers, attendance is also required at any executive meetings called outside of the regularly scheduled meetings. Officer nomination and election procedures will be outlined on the first meeting of every new academic year.

Section 7. To graduate with NAHS honors and earn the right to wear a cord, pin, or tassel at graduation, a member must remain in good standing until the graduation date.

Section 8. Members must retain at least a B average in an honors or AP class and remain in good standing academically overall. Section 9. Members must have and maintain a B cumulative average in all other subjects.

Section 10. Members may remain active during such time when there are no visual arts on their class schedules as long as they fulfill all of the other requirements each year.

Section 11. In the event of an infraction of rules, a review by the officers and sponsors will be conducted. If the individual in question is an officer, he/she will not participate in the decision-making process. This applies to all community laws as well as school and chapter rules.
