Getting Started

We want to get you acquainted with NEHS to help you get your chapter up and running quickly and smoothly. Browse these links to become familiar with essential chapter management matters.

National Constitution

Take time to print out and review the official governing document for all NEHS chapters. This online version of the Constitution is the most up-to-date edition for you and your chapter to use. Share a copy with your principal.


All chapters are required to have bylaws.  A sample set of bylaws is available once you log in to the Adviser Resource Center.

Student Membership

Learn about how your students become members, including information on methods of selection, membership obligations, and other helpful information to assist new chapter members in understanding what being a member of NEHS is all about.

Adviser Resource Center

Designed just for chapter advisers, this is the NEHS affiliate-only section of our site. Information to assist with chapter management, important dates for your NEHS chapter calendar, and news relevant to your student recognition program. In addition, your link to the archives of all of our newsletters and promotions will be located in this section.

The NEHS Store 

Now you can get many of the educational resources you need in one convenient online location with special NEHS affiliate discounts. Go to the NEHS Store to purchase insignia and clothing supplies for you or your chapter members, as well as publications and audio-visual resources on a wide range of topics.
