The Chairman of the Induction Committee is Dennise Ramirez, with Brielle Pitney, Christina Kaminsky, Patrick Hughes, Amy Frazier, Melissa Shaughness, Adam Valavanis, Danielle Baker, and Kristen Powers as members. Our goal for this year is to plan the Induction ceremony and document the process for next year's Induction Committee members.
-The ceremony date should be decided at the beginning of the year. It should be on a Wednesday in early November.
-A speaker needs to be contacted in advance and should be someone who exemplifies NHS qualities.
-The sponsor (who will not be Mrs. Ruland next year) of the club should also speak.
-Both the auditorium and cafeteria need to be booked in advance.
-The current members of the induction committee are required to come 2 hours before hand to help set up and prepare for the ceremony. The inductees should be instructed at the same time for a walk through and pizza. (Refer to Foods committee)
-Follow the previous programs for the order of events for the ceremony. (Included in folder)
-Make sure the executive board has proper robes and speeches about what the five candles represent. The club sponsor also has a speech that should be prepared. Examples are provided.
-There should be enough candles for the inductees to hold during the ceremony.
-After the induction there should be dessert and appetizers provided by the foods committee.
-They can show up at 7 and set up during the ceremony.

Today we planned the how to run the Induction Ceremony. It occurs mid-November and should be planned a month before. Part of our job is to get a guest speaker, sign up for the auditorium and cafeteria at the beginning of the school year, purchase decorations for the reception, buy and hand out programs for the induction, and arrive early to set everything up.
After school-executive board and one member of the induction committee stay to set up and rehearse
5:00 all members of the induction and food committee arrive to help set up
7:00 induction ceremony starts
We will begin compiling information concerning the induction ceremony and it's requirements. The end result will be a comprehensive binder for future reference with newer members. The binder will consist of compiled materials of requirements for the ceremony and a brief summary of the history of the importance of the ceremony.
We are going to work on training new members on how to use the site.
This coming week we plan on meeting with Mrs. Ruland to discuss the Induction Ceremony. This meeting will allow us to have a better understanding of this process and allow us to make improvements upon last years induction that will create a more efficient process. We will also be documenting the process for future Induction Committee members.
At the meeting we will discuss who will speak at the event, the order of events, when food will be served (we will be working with the Food Committee), what information to send out to the new members (the President), and the regulations from the NHS official website.
