Honorary Members

Honorary Member Certificate

Honorary membership may be granted at the discretion of the local chapter as a means of honoring outstanding supporters of the Society. Many chapters choose to make their advisors, college administrators and outstanding supporters from the community honorary members.

The honorary membership fee is $10 which includes the certificate to be presented to the honorary member. Honorary members are reported to Headquarters by the Phi Theta Kappa chapter advisor.

Criteria for Honorary Membership

  • A student or recent alumnus should not be named an honorary member.

  • Honorary membership should only be conferred upon an individual who has shown consistent and outstanding support to the local chapter.

  • An individual who is selected as an honorary member should represent the ideals on which Phi Theta Kappa is based. The individual should be of high character, intellectual ability and should exhibit a level of accomplishment worthy of recognition within the Society.

  • Like alumni members, honorary members should be afforded all rights and privileges of membership – with the exception of the right to vote or hold office. This means they may wear the Golden Key membership pin and other recognition items bearing emblems of Phi Theta Kappa.

  • Honorary members do not pay membership fees.
