Stay connected with fellow Phi Beta Kappa members through your local alumni association

Your connection with Phi Beta Kappa doesn't end as you leave campus. The love of learning— and your Phi Beta Kappa membership— lasts a lifetime, and so can your involvement by joining one of our nearly 50 alumni associations across the country. Associations have been a part of the Phi Beta Kappa family since 1877, when the first association formed in New York City. We've built alumni bases in large and small communities since then; we even have a group in London.

Becoming an association member gives you the opportunity to meet and build connections with other Phi Beta Kappa members. Associations are financially independent from the Society and set their own modest annual dues to support their activities.

Network with the top liberal arts and sciences professionals in your area through networking events, Key Connections, and mentorship programs.

Experience local culture through a new lens with guided tours, lecture series, and theater outings.

Connect with Phi Beta Kappa members through book clubs, happy hours, and other social activities hosted by associations.

Give back through scholarships and community service.
