Starting a new Honors chapter of Lambda Nu is easy. Simply contact the national Home Chapter. All accredited radiologic and imaging sciences programs are eligible for charters to establish their own chapters to recognize and honor those students exhibiting exemplary scholastic ability as students in the profession. There is a one-time charter fee ($150), after which the national organization provides a wide range of services to help start and maintain honors programs in all the radiologic and imaging sciences in all schools (hospital medical centers, community colleges, and universities). Services range from recognition paraphernalia for graduation (pins, certificates, honors cords, gown stoles, cap tassels) to national scholarship recognition and awards as well as grants for advanced study and research. A single chapter may induct students from all programs conducted by the institution chartering the chapter.
Model by-laws have been developed to guide local chapters in formulating by-laws that will be accepted by the national office, thereby putting the local charter into effect. Acceptance of local chapter by-laws by the national office is required before any chapter can induct new members.
