If you are inducting 8 new members, for example, simple repeat the Add To Cart process multiple times in the same order.
Why can't I order spare New Member Kits?
New Member Certificates are stamped with the details of the International President current at the time of induction. This means that any pre-stamped certificate stock would become obsolete at each change is President. For this reason, the details are only added at the time of order.
