FR.ED. NH FAQs
My chapter is celebrating their anniversary (25th, 50th, 75th, etc.). How do I reserve the table badge?
Congratulations on your chapter’s milestone! To make the Chapter Anniversary Ceremony complete it is always nice, but not required, to use the table badge with electric candles. Borrowing of the table badge is arranged through our National Headquarters. You must contact them 6 weeks in advance to ensure timely delivery of the badge, if it is available. Once you have finished with the badge, the chapter is then responsible for returning it to National Headquarters. The cost to the chapter is $50 -- a $30 rental fee and $20 for the shipping and handling. (See p. 9-2 in the CPM)
Our chapter ritual books are worn. Can we get them replaced? What is the procedure?
If your chapter ritual books are falling apart or have pages missing they may be returned for replacement. The books should be mailed to the National Vice President, Ritual and Fraternity Education at the address found on the rainbow sheets via signature confirmation. Once they are received, new books will be mailed to the chapter. Always inform the National Vice President, Ritual and Fraternity Education of your intent prior to mailing any books.
