An Alpha Chi chapter may annually receive recognition as a Notable Chapter by achieving these benchmarks of healthy chapter life:

  1. New members must be invited, registered, and inducted during the academic year.
  2. The Annual Chapter Report must be filed with the National Office by September 1.

  And, additionally, any three of the following:

  • At least one national Gaston/Nolle, Sledge/Benedict, or Pryor application must be submitted each academic year.
  • A minimum of one sponsor and one student delegate must attend the annual national convention.
  • A minimum of one student presentation must be made at the annual national convention.
  • At least one on-campus scholarly/academic program must be sponsored during the academic year.
  • One nomination must be submitted for Honorary Membership during the academic year.

Beginning September 1 each year, the National Office will review all reports and surveys to determine the chapters that meet the requirements to receive the honorific of Notable Chapter. A formal certificate will be shipped to each Notable Chapter for presentation and display on campus. A list of the chapters will be published in the Newsletter and on the Alpha Chi National web site.
