The Pledge Report is the critical first step in obtaining accurate information about our members. When done properly, it greatly simplifies subsequent membership reporting for the chapters and it ensures the chapters obtain the critical resources needed for an effective fraternity education program.
After the Chapter Services Fee has been paid, whenever a Pledge Report is received at the International Office, we ship a College Tablet and pledge pin to the chapter for each pledge listed in the report. Also included in the shipment is a guide for the implementation of the Psi Upsilon Membership Program and other material of interest to the pledges.
A Pledge Report is not timely if it is sent or if the Chapter Services Fee is paid, after the individuals listed have been initiated. In that case the College Tablet may be purchased for $10.00, and the pledge pin is $5.00.
Shipments are sent UPS Ground and will generally be delivered within 3-5 days. Chapters may pay for overnight delivery by providing us with a credit card number.
With an accurate Pledge Report we are able to fax a badge order to our jeweler the same day we receive the Membership Fee after a new member has been initiated. Without a Pledge Report it is inevitable that badge orders are significantly delayed. Keep in mind that the information contained in the Pledge Report is entered in the Psi Upsilon Membership Database and allows members to receive The Diamond and other mailings and it is the source of membership data for most Psi Upsilon alumni organizations.
Pledge Reports may be completed online. Also Initial and Midyear Membership Reports include a form that can be completed and faxed or mailed back to the Psi Upsilon International Office.
