Membership Information

We are the only chartered Phi Beta Kappa association in Colorado and the largest and most active PBK alumni group in the Rocky Mountain region. We are also one of the few associations in the nation with an endowment fund, which we all support through our annual dues. Our goal is that, in the future, the investment interest from this fund will be sufficient to cover our scholarship program.

Membership in Alpha Association of Colorado is open to anyone who holds a Phi Beta Kappa key from an institution of higher learning. Dues are $30 annually for a sustaining membership, $100 annually for a contributing membership, or $500 for a lifetime membership. A 1-year membership is free to new PBK initiates during the year following the date of their college graduation.

Your tax-deductible dues of $30 or more will do much to promote the quality education we all value so highly. Since we do not receive any of the dues that you send to the National PBK Society or to the Chapter at your university, we need your support. If you are unable to participate in our activities, please consider making a donation to our Scholarship Fund or Endowment.
