New Guidance Documents for Chapter Formation and Membership Selection

The most frequent requests for information received by PLS national headquarters focus on chapter formation and selection of members. Based on this information, the PLS Executive Committee have created two new documents to assist all new, re-established, and established chapters. While these documents are designed to help answer questions, please do not hesitate to contact national headquarters with any additional questions.

In addition, with these new documents, we welcome any feedback (comments/suggestions/etc.) regarding these new documents.

The Guide to the Formation of PLS chapters will be posted under the PLS/Charter Information section and the Guidelines for PLS Membership Selection Processes will be posted under the PLS/Membership section of the main home page.


Membership and Product Orders

The new website allows for online ordering of products and membership materials.  Please use this option to order.  If you do not wish to pay by credit card, you can submit your check after placing the order(s) on line.  We will hold the order(s) until the check is received, unless prior arrangements are made with the National Office.  It is our hope that online ordering will streamline the process and all for qucker turn around time for chapter orders.

The option to download, print and submit orders via hardcopy will remain available.  Membership and Product order forms should be mailed to:

Phi Lambda Sigma, P.O. Box 410416, Kansas City, MO 64141

Credit Card Payments

The new online order forms now accept payment for membership materials and products can now be made using credit cards via PayPal. Please follow the instructions provided on the order forms.
