Beyond the lifelong friendships made in college, there are many advantages our members enjoy throughout their lives. Kappa Phi alumnae, wherever they live, are welcome to participate in an alumnae chapter, attend Kora and National events – even become involved in active chapters as a Patroness or Sponsor. Whether you choose to settle down in your hometown or move to an entirely new city, you will find a network of Kappa Phi friends who are always there to support you.
Your affiliation with Kappa Phi can also help you with your future career. Whether it is networking with other sisters in the professional world or using communication and leadership skills learned while in your active chapter, many members attribute their career success, in some part, to Kappa Phi.
Life Members are part of a sisterhood of young and older alumnae who continue to reap the benefits of Kappa Phi membership long after their college years are over. Life Members exemplify the prosperity, achievement, idealism and deep sense of personal responsibility that we all pray for ourselves, our families, and our communities. A Life Membership is the best way for members to take part in the enduring spirit and heritage of Kappa Phi.
Life Membership is currently $250 (beginning January 2016), payable in three installments within a year. With this membership, members are entitled to a printed copy of the Candle Beam and all other informational mailings for life. If member chooses digital version of Candle Beam, then their price is $225. ($25 for each will be contributed to the tithe.) A graduating member, at Degree of the Rose, can purchase a 3 year membership for $25!
One Life Member is selected among peers to sit as a voting delegate at Kora Conference and National Council of Chapters.
Member-at-Large/Alumnae Chapter Member
Most Alumnae Chapters meet 9 – 12 times a year using similar programming as the active chapters. Each Alumnae Chapter provides support to one or more active chapters. National dues are currently $20 a year (beginning January 2016) plus any local dues. If an Alum Chapter is not close by, you can still enjoy the Kora and National events by becoming a Member-at-Large for $20 a year paid each January.
This membership entitles members to receive the Candle Beam publications and other informational mailings for a year. Each Alumnae Chapter in good standing has a voting delegate at Kora Conference and National Council of Chapters. In addition, one Member-at-Large is selected among peers to sit as a voting delegate.
