Once an individual is initiated into Omicron Delta Kappa and is no longer enrolled at institution that hosts their circle of initiation, they are considered a lifetime member of our Society. Lifetime members include alumni, honoris causa initiates, and faculty and staff initiates of OΔK.
Lifetime members are eligible for scholarships if they are five or fewer years beyond completion of their undergraduate degree. The Society’s member benefits also include discounts on professional and insurance services, shopping programs, and travel and entertainment opportunities. Lifetime members may also take advantage of OΔK’s career resources. Even if you aren’t searching for a position, our career resources may be used to help identify other members who could be candidates for position at your company or organization.
Omicron Delta Kappa is an organization that offers leadership training and development to members in every phase of their lives and careers. You might enjoy listening to our podcast series, Listen Up OΔK Leaders!, participate in educational workshops provided by True Colors International, or attend the National Leadership Conference.
There are numerous opportunities to engage as a volunteer within Omicron Delta Kappa. In addition to attending the National Leadership Conference, lifetime members are invited to present programs at the conference. You might have an interest in helping our circles thrive, serve as a national volunteer as a scholarship reviewer, or be actively involved in the governance of the Society.
We invite lifetime members to remain connected to the Society throughout their leadership journeys by sharing accomplishments and updating contact information. If you are a lifetime member has moved to a college or university that doesn’t currently have an OΔK circle, the National Headquarters staff is happy to work with you to start your own.
