Chapter Announcements

Dated:  January 31st, 2024

Here we go!  2024 is here and TriBeta is gearing up for a fantastic year!  We have Spring district conventions coming up in March and April and the National Convention following at the end of May!  We have many training sessions coming up for the new membership registration platform, as well as New Chapter Advisor overview + Q&A meetings on the calendar.  More announcements are below. 

 

As always, we are always available at the National Office to answer any of your questions, we are committed to helping your chapter grow and thrive. Thank you for your dedicated service to your chapter and its members.

Bertholf Award

The deadline for chapters to submit for consideration for the Bertholf Outstanding Chapter of the Year Award is Friday, February 2nd, 2024.  Information about the award and the form to complete are here:  Bertholf Award.  If your chapter hosted a district convention, attended a district convention, had members awarded research grants, had students submit for BIOS publication consideration, had chapter service or social projects, please submit an application for your chapter.  So many of your chapters do so many great things, but do not apply!  No matter the size of the chapter or number of members, all chapters are considered based on their merit of activities.  1st place receives a plaque and $500 monetary award for the chapter, 2nd place receives a plaque and $250. 

 

Registering New Members:  My Honor Society (MHS)

(https://tribeta.myhonorsociety.com/)

All memberships will be processed through the My Honor Society system.  Students can pay for their membership through the online platform; Chapters no longer have to collect national dues and submit them to the national office.  If you are registered as the Chapter Advisor, you already have a login created.  Click “Forgot Password” and enter your school email address for a link to be sent to you.  Contact the national office if the system does not have your information and we will create a login for you.

TriBeta’s National Partner, Be the Match, is now NMDP

At the beginning of 2024, Be the Match officially rebranded and is now known as NMDP.  A representative of NMDP will be attending each TriBeta organized district convention this Spring and will be attending the national convention.  Many chapters have held a campus event or lecture series hosted by NMDP this past Fall and many other chapters have events scheduled for this Spring.  Reach out to NMDP if your chapter is interested in having a Donor Registration drive on your campus or community or wants more information on the class lecture series.  Later in February, we will be hosting another NMDP + TriBeta webinar to review the partnership and go over chapter activity options.  An email inviting you to that webinar info session will be sent soon.  Link: https://www.tribeta.org/partnerships
