Just a few short weeks ago, the National Chapters met at the 2015 National Convention to participate in numerous leadership development activities, elect our new National Council and Board of Trustees members, and to attend to other business of the Fraternity/Sorority. Over the next month, you will receive further updates about the changes to come out of convention, but we wanted to call your attention to one change that will begin to affect members immediately.
The 2015-2017 biennial budget for each organization was reviewed and approved by the Ways & Means Committee and then adopted by the majority of the National Chapter in attendance in Lexington. After a period of six years with no dues increase, both organizations have voted to raise dues and initiate fees by $15 effective for the 2015-2016 school year. This increase is to cover the growth of the organization, allow for increased development of our programs, and to support several capital improvement projects at our National Headquarters properties. The following table lists all chapter and membership fees for the 2015-17 biennium:
Active, Conditional, Associate Membership Dues
Honorary Initiation Fees
It is important that all chapter officers check to see if they have any pending forms in the OMRS. These fee changes will go into effect on Friday 8/14. Once the fees are updated in the OMRS, all pending forms with a balance due will be updated to the current fee structure listed above.
