    Failure to maintain the minimum service points required at each point check will result in probation.  Please see the probation overview for more details.  If you encounter an error in the points online: First, you should check your own records against what is online. Second, you should contact the NHS Secretary and Chapter Advisers.

    **Any late point forms submitted after the point check deadline do not count toward the member's total points or events.**
    **Events / service hours completed must be submitted during the SAME nine weeks that service was completed.  Any events / service hours turned in at a later nine weeks time period will not count.  (Example: You forgot to add to your point form that you volunteered at the Jesse Jones trail clean up in September, so you add it to your November point form.  The September service date was from the first nine weeks, so the hours should have been submitted by the first point deadline: Friday, Oct. 20th.  The points would not count during the 2nd nine weeks time frame.)
    **Note - If you have a recurring event (repeated dates for event within a nine weeks), you must complete a NEW pre-approval form at the start of a new nine weeks.  Make sure to list the dates that this event occurs on your pre-approval form!  This must be attached EACH nine weeks to your point form.
