Omicron Delta Kappa will continue to support our circles by providing the National Virtual Initiation Ceremony. While circles should still make every effort to plan and host their own online initiation ceremony, OΔK realizes that in some circumstances this is not possible. The National Headquarters will host five (5) online ceremonies in spring 2021. To provide an experience as close to the actual ceremony, participation will be limited for each ceremony.
New for Spring 2021 – Notable Speakers: Each ceremony will have a notable OΔK member speak to the attendees. The list of the speakers and a brief bio can be found here. Not all speakers have been assigned a ceremony at this time.
- Circles must register in advance. A PDF of the complete details for the ceremonies is available at this link NVIC General Information Spring 2021
- Registration for the spring ceremonies opens on January 18, 2021. Click here to register.
Please note – individuals cannot register for the national ceremony and will not be invited to attend a ceremony unless the circle has registered. Circles will not be permitted to register for multiple ceremonies in the spring.
