Please note the following important information in relation to the above stipulations:

Unregistered Activities and Hard Alcohol: Unregistered social activities and events where hard alcohol is present pose a significant risk to both chapter members and guests. The nature of both violations is severe, and as a result, if a chapter is found responsible for either hosting an unregistered social activity or having hard alcohol present at an event or activity, the immediate steps will be a minimum of social probation and/or a monetary fine of at least $250 for the chapter. In the event that an FSL organization is found responsible for hard alcohol in its chapter house/suite and the incident is not connected to an activity or event that is social in nature, it is likely that the probation received by the chapter would be space/housing probation; a $250 fine is also possible in this situation.

Note the following stipulations regarding hard alcohol for FSL chapters created by the FSL Standards and Social Event Management Advisory Boards: If a chapter is found in violation of having hard alcohol at any registered or unregistered chapter social activity, governing FSL councils and chapters would be notified and chapters would be encouraged to consider not having social events with the organization found responsible for the hard alcohol violation.
