The 2022-2023 Yardstick
The Yardstick, on the following pages, measures your chapter's success during the year. The Yardstick should be filled out at a chapter meeting, generally by the Yardstick chairman, and sent to International by the deadline, July 31, 2023. A copy of the Yardstick should
be retained for the chapter’s permanent records. While filling out the Yardstick, credit your chapter as you feel it deserves for activities from August 1 to July 31. Mail Yardstick to your division chairman at International (P.O. Box 8500, Kansas City, MO 64114-0500) by the deadline. Three-Star chapters whose Yardsticks are received by the deadline will be sent a certificate at the end of August. Chapters whose Yardsticks are received up until April 1, 2024 at the latest will be credited with their star ratings on the website, www.betasigmaphi. org / More Members Only / Chapter Star Ratings. Special arrangements will be made with new chapters organized less than a year. You can download the form from our website or submit your Yardstick electronically either through our website,
under Members Only / Fill in Forms or our sister-site, the Beta Journal, at www.betajournal.com The Yardstick helps you determine how well your chapter has served the needs and interests of every member. If yours is a Three-Star chapter, you can be certain it has done a good job, but the three-star rating is not in itself the goal. The three-star rating is only a standard to measure enjoyment and success. Chapters who have Friendly Ventured or added seven or more pledges to their chapter during the sorority year will earn a special four-star rating. For assistance with Friendly Venture, call 816-444-6800.

3. Programs come in two categories – formal programs, which should be at least 30 minutes in duration, including chapter discussion; and informal programs, which can include cultural outings like a visit to a museum. We require at least 18 total programs a year.
