Membership and Affiliation Fees

Life Time Membership Fee

The lifetime membership fee is the core financial stream for Omicron Delta Kappa. As a non-profit organization, we are member supported and member driven. The lifetime membership fee supports all operations of the association including member and circle services, career services platform (including internships and mentoring program), web content including developing the leadership matters web site, leadership program development, subsidizing workshops and conferences, and general operations. Unlike some other associations and honor societies, there are no national dues after the initiation.

Affiliation Fee (Institutional Dues)

Every circle, being an affiliated member of the Omicron Delta Kappa Society, pays an annual fee that helps to fund and support the programs, services, and administration of the national organization. The Society Board of Directors determines the amount of the affiliation fee that is due by December 3 each year. For circles that only initiate in the spring term, there is an allowance to pay the affiliation fee at the time of initiation.
