CONVENTION CODE OF

CONDUCT

Knowing that any organization is judged largely by the behavior of its individual members, we who attend the Beta Club Convention agree that our registering at the State Convention constitutes our subscribing to the following rules that comprise the Code of Conduct.

RULE 1: Each Sponsor is responsible for each and every one of his/her students. Therefore, students must keep their Sponsor informed of their whereabouts at all times.

RULE 2: Betas registered at the Convention should be present for all scheduled meetings and on time.

RULE 3: Curfew is set by the State Council and the curfew will be printed in the convention program. This means that you should be in your own room respectfully quiet.

RULE 4: Members may visit other members’ rooms only with the Sponsor’s knowledge and approval.

RULE 5: Members will not access balconies at any time during the convention.

RULE 6: No alcoholic beverages, tobacco or drugs, in any form, shall be possessed by anyone at this State Beta Convention. Clothing which advertises sex, drugs, alcohol or tobacco will not be permitted.

RULE 7: All registered Betas are expected to wear official name badges at all times.

RULE 8: Each registered Beta is expected to display and exert leadership qualities in a responsible manner which will lead to the organized success of this Convention. Betas should conduct themselves in such a manner that their actions will reflect favorably on the school and community and all of those responsible for providing the student with this opportunity.

RULE 9: Members who leave the convention site to walk to restaurants and shops or to ride on MARTA must have written parental permission.

We agree that any violation of these rules subjects our entire chapter to being sent home and all honors and awards forfeited. Serious misconduct on our part shall be reported to our Principal and our parents, who shall be advised that we are barred from participating in future Beta Conventions, and shall constitute grounds for the cancellation of our school’s charter of the National Beta Club.
