Honor Society is committed to assisting our members on how to prevent unprofessionalism, risky behavior, inappropriate behavior or commentary, and any other potential threats to our Chapters, as well as our members at large. One of our core values is to “Pursue Excellence,” and we take this phrase very seriously. By adhering to the organization's policies, members ensure they are representing the organization in the most positive and appropriate way possible.
