Why are Points Important?
There are various ways that members can earn points. We have meetings every Wednesday, and each is worth a point. This is a very easy way to get points! Members will also receive a total of 3 points (1 point per hour) they work at any of our fundraising activities, 3 points for involvement in the organization's planned socials, 1 point per meeting attended, and 1 point per hour of volunteer service.
Points are very important. You are required to have at least 20 points to be able to attend SWPA with Psi Chi financial support. It is required that you have at least 20 points because it covers the cost of the hotel room and gas. If you have additional points, the number you have will be used to determine the amount of spending money that you will get for SWPA to buy food and other items you might need.
If you are not planning on attending or presenting at SWPA, points earned may go towards Psi Chi merchandise.

Volunteer Hours Bulletin
Each member should try to earn five volunteer hours per semester by participating in any form of community service they choose. Volunteer hours can come from various activities, such as volunteering to help at the Women's shelter, tutoring a high school student, and the boys and girl's club. Psi Chi will offer various events throughout the semesters to help members work towards the 5 hour goal. Psi Chi events will only be worth one point, no matter the duration of the event.
When logging your volunteer hours on the website, be sure to enter your full name, and in the comment box write a brief paragraph about your service activity, and how many hours you attended. At the bottom of your paragraph, please include the contact information for the supervisor you worked under. Please be prepared to hand in to the Secretary a written and signed document from the individual or organization of which you volunteered.
Volunteering has several advantages. It not only helps your CV or resume stand out, it is an opportunity to help out in the community that provides for you, while helping others and gaining valuable experience that can be applied in later endeavors.
Volunteering is an easy way to earn points toward SWPA and a great way to help out your community!
