  • International 85th Anniversary Convention Registration – Convention Registration is now available on line, just visit Start at the title; 2016 International Convention Sign Up and follow the prompts. Payments may be submitted in $20.00 increments or more, on line or by postal mail.
  • Yardstick Change – Three points are available each time you review the Torch with your chapter (print or online version), or reviewing the Beta Sigma Phi website. Points for reviewing the Book of Beta Sigma Phi is still an option. Find all of these items in the Planning Section of the Yardstick form with the maximum of 36 points available for this section.
  • Sharing Contact – All Prospective names, members at large, and transferee names will be sent to the President and Vice President unless a Contact Chairman is indicated. This change is due to women letting International know they are not hearing from anyone after their information has been shared and appropriate amount of time has passed.
  • Electronic Chapter Minutes – Chapter or council minutes which have been electronically sent to International will generate an automatic copy of the submission back to the sender via email for their records within the same day.
  • Legacy Address Updates Needed – If you sponsored a Legacy who is now over 18 and has not yet joined Beta Sigma Phi, please send us her current contact information; last name (especially, if changed), address, phone, email. This will assist us immensely in future contact.
  • Chapter Subscription Challenge – Now’s the time to obtain that chapter Torch subscription and be eligible to become a Torch Chapter. The Torch staff is initiating a chapter subscription challenge – if even one member from each chapter subscribed to the print edition of The Torch, the print edition will thrive for years. All chapters that participate will be in a drawing each issue to have a Torch page be completely dedicated to them and may submit anything (within reason) or request special articles.
