For the third year in a row, The Phi Beta Kappa Society is partnering with our local associations in cities across the country to welcome recent inductees and members who might have recently relocated to offer a chance to network and connect in the spirit of Phi Beta Kappa's founding and emphasis on friendship and fellowship.
Our associations will be hosting events ranging from career panels to brewery tours, all designed to welcome you and extend your connection with the Society. Click on the events below to learn more and register for these great events. Questions? Contact Ann McCulloch.
