"While you are at Hogwarts, your triumphs will earn your House points, while any rule-breaking will lose House points."Q
Our Constitution put aside Article VII as devoted solely to a special type of committee we have: Houses. And while you know what a Houses at Hogwarts is like, you'll still want to know what our Constitution says, so Article VII is listed below.
Throughout the year we sort our members to place them into Houses. The Sorting Ceremony is our official opening event of every Fall semester, and the Victory Feast is the official closing event of every Spring semester. Both of these events are based heavily around our Houses.

Section 1: There will be four specialized committees known as Houses that shall function separately from ONBT standing committees. The President shall be in charge of overseeing the Houses and appointing each House two chairpersons, known as Prefects. These Prefects must be in the House they are appointed Prefect for. Each meeting of ONBT the Prefects will report back on anything in their House they feel necessary to share with the rest of ONBT.
Section 2: Each House is expected, though not required, to meet every month outside of ONBT. Each House is also expected, though not required, to have their own social events for their House outside of ONBT. These meetings and events can be open to the rest of ONBT or closed as deemed by the prefects.
Section 3: Each House is meant to be a smaller group for its members to socialize and organize events within. The decision on how to determine membership to each House will be determined by the Executive Board each fall.
