Chapter Affiliation Fee

Each chapter pays an annual affiliation fee of $65.00. For chapters chartered before June 1, 2010, the Annual Affiliation Fee invoice is emailed to the Lead Advisor on April 15 and is due June 1 of each year. For chapters chartered after June 1, 2010, the Annual Affiliation Fee is due on their charter anniversary date. These chapters also receive their invoice 45 days prior to their due date. A chapter not currently "affiliated" may not submit new members for induction until the affiliation fee has been paid.

  1. Login to NEHS Connect

  • After the payment is processed, an email confirmation of your transaction will be sent to the email address registered with your NEHS Connect Chapter Advisor account. You can also view your transaction status in Payment History under the Annual Affiliation Fee tab.

Pay with Check

Credit card payment is preferred because it is the most expeditious way to complete the online affiliation submission. However, if your chapter is unable to pay by credit card:

    Pay by School Check
    Pay by District Check
    Pay by Other Check
  • Click Confirm.
  • Print this page for your records. Attach a copy with your check. You have now completed your online affiliation submission.
