The ZHS Chapter will follow the selection guidelines for membership as stated in the National Constitution.  The membership application will be reviewed by a faculty committee as outlined in the NHS constitution.  The faculty committee will then recommend to the advisor those candidates who meet the high standards of the NHS for induction into the organization.  Late or incomplete membership applications will be rejected without committee review.
