Active and Inactive Members:
An active member not only fulfills the academic requirements for CSF membership, but also participates in chapter activities at a level predetermined by the chapter adviser and officers; it is expected that such participation should exemplify the CSF motto of "Scholarship for Service". Inactive members are still entitled to consideration for the required awards (Article VI, Section 1), but may be excluded from other optional awards and chapter privileges (e.g., field trips, banquets, chapter scholarships, etc.)
