  • Club level awards (over 100 members and then at each 100 club thereafter) are automatically calculated and awarded - no need to apply for them!

  • Percentage Membership Awards: Find your student body total (if you are unsure ask your office staff or administration for a total) - you'll need this number for the next section of awards.

     

    - Silver membership is 10%-14%; Gold is 15%-19%; Diamond is 20-24%; Platinum is 25% or more.

    To find your membership percentage: take the number of members your unit has paid for by March 30 and divide that number by your student body.  (Example: 340 members / 700 students = 0.48).  

    Then take your decimal and multiply by 100. (Example: 0.48 x 100 = 48%).  48% is Platinum membership!
