Chapter Dues and Voting Membership Renewal

AKD Voting Membership Renewal & Chapter Dues Form

Individuals serving as an AKD Chapter Representative and on the AKD Council must renew their AKD membership to be a Voting member for the 2021 calendar year per Article VIII, section 3 of the Constitution: “Chapter Representatives. Each Chapter of this Society shall have at least one Chapter Representative who shall be both a faculty member of the host academic institution and a Voting member of this society.” This takes place of annual chapter dues and runs on a calendar year.

Payment
The cost of the annual/chapter dues is currently $50. At this time, AKD can accept a check or money order made out to Alpha Kappa Delta. If need be, you may email the form to us and send the check/money order separately. We can also now accept credit cards. If you would like to make a payment with a credit card, please just email us the completed form with a note indicating you’d like to pay by card. We will send you a direct link to pay. Check with your department to see if they would be willing to cover this due.

Due Date
Dues run on a calendar year. Feel free to send in your renewal form and payment by the start of the 20201 calendar year to ensure active status for your chapter. If you would rather send in your renewal with your spring initiates order, that is fine so long as you are not applying for funding or other AKD programs. Any renewals we receive in 2020 will be put towards the 2021 calendar year.

What if I do not renew?
Failure to do so may result in a chapter being placed in inactive status (inactive chapters cannot induct new members or participate in other AKD activities). Once a chapter turns in the necessary renewal from, the chapter will be removed from inactive status. Please note our office will not process any membership or merchandise orders after January 1, 20201 unless the chapter has sent in the renewal/chapter dues and payment.
