MRABAThis stands for "Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement"
This is a form that must be signed in order to join a chapter. If someone signs this agreement, and is extended a bid from a chapter that they wrote down on their MRABA as a chapter they would accept a bid from, they may not join a different chapter for one year (until the next spring recruitment)
