    Meetings

    Next meeting: September 2022

     

    Attendance at the meetings is a requirement for membership. If you cannot attend a meeting for school-related reasons (e.g. - a soccer game, not practice), contact Mr. Chamberlin at least one day before the meeting. Failure to inform Mr. Chamberlin of your absence prior to the meeting will result in an unexcused absence for that meeting. NHS members are allowed a maximum of one unexcused absence per school year. We will be meeting in our small groups - groups coming soon. 

    Officers normally meet a week prior to the general assembly meeting.

    2) Dues. $15 paid at the Palmer Business Office. If you cannot afford the dues, see Mr. Chamberlin in room 222.

If you need to be absent from a meeting (doctor appointment, sport game - not practice, etc.), contact Mr. Chamberlin (michael.chamberlin@d11.org) prior to the meeting. 

    4) Service Projects - Fall Semester: Two in-school service projects must be completed. Second Semester: Two in-school service projects must be completed. Each Semester: One individual project must be completed (can be a 3rd in-school service project).
