1. How many points must I earn per semester?
5 points during your first semester of joining with 1 point being a service point
10 points each additional semester with 3 being service points
5 points your graduating semester with 1 being a service point.
5 points each semester as a graduate student with 1 being a service point
2. Will points carry over from semester to semester?
Yes. Extra service will carry over as active.
YOU MUST EARN YOUR SERVICE POINTS EACH SEMESTER.
3. What happens if I do not make my points?
The first semester you do not make your points, you will be placed on probation and must make all points for that semester plus the points you missed. EXAMPLE: 8 points - Fall Semester missing 1 service and 1 active. For Spring Semester, you are on probation and must make a total of 12 points with 8 being active and 4 being service. If you fail to achieve your points after our probationary period, you will be dropped.
4. What ways can I lose my membership?
a. Failure to pay the $15 local dues.
b. Failure to meet point requirements.
c. Failure to maintain academic level.
5. Do I have to attend all the meetings?
You do not have to attend any meetings, but we do encourage your attendance in order to be aware of what we're doing and involved in. You do get points for attending meetings. If you wear a t-shirt to the meeting you will receive an extra active point. This means you will receive 2 active points for going to a meeting. T-shirts may be bought at meetings and will cost $15 (cash or check only). If a member has perfect attendance for the semester, they do not have to pay dues for the following semester.
6. What happens if I miss a meeting?
a. It is your responsibility to find out what was missed. "What's Happenin'" sheets may be obtained online or at the meetings. Any general information can be found in the semester newsletter that is sent to our member roster at the beginning of each semester; this document is also available online.
b. Newsletters are issued at the beginning of each semester with a basic calendar.
7. Can I get points for service I do outside of GBP?
Yes, as long as you do not get paid for doing it, it is not in conjunction with another group's work or a class credit, you are not helping a family member, or it is not church work. Only half of the points received for non-Gamma Beta Phi service counts toward a semester's total points.
8. What process do I follow to report service points from outside GBP?
We have 'sheets' that are blank forms requiring some information about what you did, the signature of someone who supervised the work, and proof of the event (a program, flyer, pictures, or supervisors business card). The blank forms can be obtained online or at the meetings and should be completed and returned to the PRESIDENT.
9. Is there any function of the chapter that I have to take part in?
a. Everyone must sell one book (10 tickets) of raffle tickets per semester. This is our major fund-raiser that affords us the funds to operate our service projects. Failure to sell a book will result in the loss of 2 active points.
b. You must pay local dues of $15 per semester.
10. What happens if my grades drop?
To retain membership in GBP, you must maintain a 3.00. If you should fall below this, you will be placed on probation for the following semester, but will be allowed to continue to participate fully in GBP. If, however, you should fail to bring up your grades following the probationary period, you will be suspended. That means your name will still be on file but your membership is frozen. You do not pay dues, participate at meetings, etc. If you fail to bring your grades up after that semester, you will be dismissed.
11. What should I do if I know I'm going to have a really difficult semester and may not have the time to devote to GBP?
You may apply to be considered inactive for one semester. This means that your participation in GBP is frozen for that semester. You will be required to fill out an inactive application by the first meeting. One may only go inactive once and it cannot be during a graduating or beginning semester. The forms for inactive status may be obtained at the regular meetings or online.
12. What happens to my membership if I have to stay out of school for one or more semesters?
You must notify the Executive Council that you are not in school and your membership will be frozen until you return. If you do not notify us, we will continue to credit your membership as active; you need to notify the Executive Council if you stay out more than one semester. You must also alert us when you return to school to regain full membership status.
13. What happens to my membership if I transfer to another university?
a. If that school has a GBP chapter, you will have to contact Nationals and become a member-at-large.
b. If that school does not have a chapter, we will keep your name in our files, and at the beginning of the semester you graduate, notify our co-advisors, and they will send a diploma seal to you.
14. New Members DO NOT get an active point for joining or attending Induction.
a. New members only receive 1 active point for paying early dues which will be at the new members meeting.
b. New members cannot work induction, but you must be present. If you cannot be present you must send a letter to the Executive Council explaining why you cannot attend.
15. What is the Progression Plan?
a. The Progression Plan is a way of selecting Outstanding Gamma Beta Phi Members. The officer core will decide the 8 events for each semester that will be a part of the plan. The members are responsible for getting signatures at the selected event and keeping up with the business card.
b. The Progression Plan starts in the Fall semester, the fall semester ONLY. New members for the Fall may not participate in this program.
c. At the end of the Spring semester, cards will be turned in to the officers to award outstanding membership to the members who completed all 16 events. The member will be award 5 extra active points for the Spring semester and a special award such as a T-shirt or pull over.
