- Contact the National Office, firstname.lastname@example.org, to obtain the ID and Password Codes in case they are not available in the chapter files.
- The Members Login username and password have been shared with the Blue Key Chapter President and Advisor(s). This information should be passed along with the annual change of officers as well as advisor changes.
Note: The National Office prefers mailing these items to the Blue Key Advisor’s office because campus mail to departments does not normally get folded or bent to fit in small postal or home mailboxes. This avoids possible bending and creasing of the certificates during handling.
Note: The induction ceremony shall include the distribution of certificates, membership cards and pins to the new members of Blue Key in a sincere and ceremonial manner.
Note: Using legible handwriting, members shall sign the chapter’s Blue Key Register. Each chapter shall maintain a signed registry of its members.
Note: Chapters are expected to select new Blue Key members at least once a year. A number of chapter refresh by selecting new members early in both the Fall and Spring semesters. There is no upper limit regarding the size of a Blue Key chapter. The recommended minimum is 20-25 members to have an impact on campus. Exceptions do exist.
