The Institutional Membership (Affiliation) Fee is due no later than December 3, 2018.

All circles are required to pay this fee even if they do not participate in these specific programs. Circles that do not pay this fee may be classified as inactive. Inactive circles may not initiate members or participate in O∆K programs.
The one-time Institutional Chartering Fee of $1,500 (for circles chartering after July 1, 2018) will be invoiced to the circle upon submission of the Petition for Charter. Payment must be made prior to installation ceremony and covers site visit and installation travel to campus, charter, bronze key, and record book.
The Lifetime National Membership Fee, a one-time fee payable at the time of initiation, is $88. The Lifetime National Membership Fee is the primary source of revenue for the Society and supports everything from leadership development programs to technology, personnel, circle outreach, and publications.
