Chapter History Project


For our 100th anniversary, we’re creating a presentation for our National Conference that highlights the history of all active AMBUCS chapters. We’re asking each chapter to send a brief history (under 1,000 words), and two photos representing your chapter “then” and “now.”


Email history and photos to tiffanya@ambucs.org.


Submission Deadline: July 29

4th Quarter Blue Chip Report

View the 4th Quarter Blue Chip Report here.

The quarterly Blue Chip Report chronicles the membership development of each AMBUCS Chapter and of the organization as a whole. The data contained in the report is gathered from the chapters via the Member Additions and Member Deletions Forms.

In order to encourage a sustained level of growth, each chapter is assigned a yearly net member gain goal based on the number of members at start-of-year.

Those chapters that reach their goal at end-of-year become a Blue Chip Chapter and receive recognition at National Conference and a banner patch. Chapters are ranked by net new members gained and the Top Ten chapters receive recognition at National Conference and a banner patch. Chapters that have achieved Blue Chip status two years in a row are called Double Chip, three years Triple Chip, four years Quad Chip; they will each receive recognition at National Conference and a banner patch.

Sign into the HUB!

The new AMBUCS Membership HUB is live! Every member has access, so claim your account now. Here’s instructions.

Chapter Officers are Administrators of their chapter page. Start changing your officers or modifying chapter and member information. Most importantly, start documenting your chapter’s activities.

Chapters still need to fill out the  Scorecard for the 2021-2022 4th Quarter, which is due by June 10th. After that, the Scorecard will be replaced by activity reports on the HUB.

The HUB is the go-to source for AMBUCS membership. More content and functionality will be added over time.

Spring Round Up Ends. Welcome, New Members!

During Spring Round Up, we challenge our existing members to recruit new volunteers. And wow! It sure is a challenge. It’s a two-month-long membership drive that kickstarts the spring with a little friendly competition and, hopefully, new faces. Growing AMBUCS is important! New hands on deck means more people who can help carry out the mission. Check out our top recruiting chapters and members here. If you want to know more about Spring Round Up, read about it in the Award Guidelines. Plan for our next membership drive and other AMBUCS events by checking out the Leadership Planning Calendar.

100% Giving Status Reports

Care to know how your chapter has helped fuel the national programs? Check out these reports as of June 10, 2022. Review one for Amtryke, jump over to Scholars and round it out with the Cornerstone report. Your chapter can choose to be 100% in one, two or all three categories. All you have to do is contribute what is listed for your chapter in the Need column by May 31. More about 100% Giving and its rich history can be found in the Chapter Toolkit here. Feel free to reach out with questions to jessicaw@ambucs.org.
