Important information regarding invitations to join “honor societies” February 8th, 2017
Hello, Ecampus HDFS community—
I’ve heard from several of you who’ve received email invitations to join the “Honor Society”. This organization is not a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) and so I encourage you to visit ACHS’s website for more information to help you determine whether membership in a particular organization is of benefit to you. They actually posted a good warning about “honor societies” and the importance of doing your research before you join anything. Here’s the website: https://www.achsnatl.org/informational_alert.asp .
It’s always a wonderful feeling to receive an invitation to join an organization that recognizes your academic achievements. Indeed, joining a credible honor society can provide you with helpful life-long benefits. But if you receive solicitations from organizations that might sound too good to be true, please proceed with caution.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions! 🙂
