National Lifetime Membership Fee
The National Lifetime Membership Fee is paid upon initiation and is the only membership fee or dues ever paid by members. There are no recurring annual fees or dues. The National Lifetime Membership Fee is just that – for a lifetime.
This fee is the core financial stream for Omicron Delta Kappa. As a non-profit organization, we are member-supported and member-driven. The National Lifetime Membership Fee supports all operations of O∆K including membership and circle services, leadership development programs, the annual National Leadership Conference, online programs, and general operations. Unlike some other associations and honor societies, there are no national dues after the initiation.
Institutional Membership Fee (formerly Affiliation Fee)
The charter for each circle is awarded to the college or university. As an institutional member of the Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society, the institution pays an annual fee that helps to support the programs, services, and administration of the national organization. The Board of Trustees determines the amount of the Institutional Membership Fee. The fee is due by December 15 for circles that initiate in fall and by May 31 for circles that only initiate in spring.
