UPDATE: The launch of MyODK has been delayed again to ensure that all the necessary components are working and we have time to train circle officers on the various functions.
At this time, we are not anticipating the launch of the circle portal until later in 2024. Circles will continue to use MMS for the remainder of this academic year. Circles that wish to start their fall membership process this spring will need to reach out to their circle contact about starting the process in MyODK. We are hoping to launch the member portal in March or April.
We are sorry that the launch date keeps getting pushed back. We would prefer to have a fully developed product and circle officers trained to use it.

Omicron Delta Kappa is seeking the student trustee for our Board of Trustees. Student trustees have just as much authority and responsibility as our other board members. They attend our quarterly board meetings and voice the concerns of our collegiate members and advisors as policies and procedures are developed for O∆K. To be eligible to serve, student trustees need to plan to be enrolled in a degree program during the Spring semester. One does not need to be enrolled as a student throughout the three years of service. The Society covers expenses for the in-person meetings for students.
- The deadline for student trustee nominations and applications is January 30, 2024.
In June 2022, the Board of Trustees voted to change the process by which Omicron Delta Kappa selects the National Leader of the Year (NLOY) and when circles select the Circle Leader of the Year.
The Circle Leader of the Year (CLOY) honor is no longer a gateway to the NLOY. For that reason, the CLOY process has been moved to the winter and spring. Circles are still expected to select a CLOY – a person dedicated to the circle’s leadership and success. The circle then notifies the National Headquarters of its selection. The CLOY recipients will receive a signed certificate suitable for framing, be recognized on the O∆K website and through social media, and be recognized at the National Leadership Conference.
Submissions for the CLOY open on January 1, 2024, and close on May 31, 2024.
We hope to have every circle select a Circle Leader of the Year in 2024.
