National membership in NSBE allows you to enjoy the above benefits while standing in solidarity on NSBE’s mission. Becoming an active member of your local chapter is the easiest way to get involved and DO something about it. We cannot have one without the other. Join or Renew today, and find your local chapter.
Questions about your chapter’s non-profit status?
Chapter Officers: Is your chapter not active? Chapters must be active for Senators and Delegates votes to be recognized in NSBE elections. Keeping your chapter active also permits your chapter to compete in Chapter of the Year competitions, chapter relief applications, and the like. In addition, your chapter is not counted among NSBE’s active chapters when we report end of year data.

Your chapter may be eligible to fall under NSBE's non-profit status:
1. Must have your own tax ID (or use that of your University).
2. Your chapter must be active. If not, renew the chapter's charter. (Chapters that do not have Active status in IMPak are not eligible. So, chapters need to get the 10 paid members and the officers in.)
3. Confirm with the university that the chapter cannot use the University's tax-exempt status for itself as a subordinate.
4. If the chapter cannot use the tax-exempt status of the university, then the chapter needs to fill out the survey linked below.
