The Omicron Delta Kappa Society and Educational Foundation Board of Trustees have approved the following fees for the 2019-20 academic year:
- Institutional Membership (Affiliation) Fee: $115 per circle
- Institutional Chartering Fee: $1,500 per circle
- Membership Fee: $88 per individual
The Institutional Membership (Affiliation) Fee is due by December 15 for circles that initiate in fall and by April 30 for circles that only initiate in spring. This is the fee that supports programs including, but not limited to, circle consultation visits, regional workshops, and the annual conference. 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 will be invoiced to the circle upon submission of the Petition for Charter. Payment must be made prior to the 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.
