Collegiate Chapter Notes


Chapter Honorees


The intent of the Chapter Honoree program is that it is designed to allow chapters to honor people other than students with BGS membership who would not otherwise qualify for membership. If your proposed Honoree is already a BGS member, please contact for alternative suggestions for honoring them.

BGS does not provide certificates for these Honorees other than those provided through Award Concepts. The Chapter Honoree package is $250 USD, plus shipping, and includes the lifetime membership, a 4-signature certificate that can be given to the honoree, and the 2-signature frames certificate. The Chapter Honoree packages take 4 TO 6 WEEKS from the later of the date the order is submitted to BGS or Award Concepts and paid in full. Please submit your orders so that they can arrive and be checked for any inaccuracies or shipping damage well before the date you intend to present the award to your honoree.

You need to place and pay for the order for the certificate and frame through the Award Concepts website, before the order begins processing, in addition to completing the form on our website.  If you cannot pay with a credit card, please contact Award Concepts to provide a proforma invoice for payment, by email to or by phone at 800.659.7801.

Bronze Keys

Chapters may order a bonze key statue to place on campus to promote their BGS chapter. The key is an outstanding symbol of scholastic achievement and signals the excellence of your business program.

The cost of the key is $9,000.  Each school designs its own base, some include a plaque with an inscription. Examples can be seen on the BGS website. Please note: the above price does not include the base the key sits in. The vendor who makes the key also does crating for an additional $500, although you can choose to have it crated by someone of your own choice.  It appears from other chapters’ experience that the vendor crating option is more convenient. Each school would also be responsible for shipping based upon location.  The estimated time frame for completion is about 5 months.
