NEW MEMBER DUES & FEES
Membership Responsibility - Financial
Just like any membership organization or club, civic group and professional or trade association, membership dues are a part of ensuring the consistency and longevity of the experience provided to members.
As a not-for-profit corporation, dues and fees are collected and reinvested to the direct benefit of the member. This is accomplished through the intentional and targeted programming provided to develop women of substance, character and influence.
WHY DO I PAY NEW MEMBER AND INITIATION FEES?
New member dues and initiation fees are paid by all new members of Phi Sigma Sigma and cover membership benefits provided by the international organization. Events held at the local level are funded by local chapter dues which are paid in addition to international new member dues and initiation fees. Learn more about our modified pay-as-you-go format during COVID-19.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
After registering on the Phi Sigma Sigma website and paying your first installment, you will receive our fall 2020 welcome box via mail. The branded keepsake box will include numerous Phi Sig gifts, your official bid, new member pin & more!
INITIATION CERTIFICATE & MEMBERSHIP CARD
Following initiation, you will receive your official initiation certificate and membership card.
PHI SIGMA SIGMA BADGE
Your initiation fee covers your lifelong lease on your Phi Sigma Sigma badge, proudly worn by all Phi Sigma Sigma sisters. Your badge option is standardized based on your chapter's selected badge.
ANNUAL FRATERNITY DUES
Fraternity dues are paid on an annual basis by all active members. As a new member, a portion of your new member dues covers your yearly contribution. Annual Fraternity dues cover yearly operating expenses and chapter services, including insurance coverage, technology services, chapter & member support services, chapter & member programming, member recognition and Fraternity operating expenses.
As a new member you will participate in the Phi Program, Phi Sigma Sigma's new member education program. The Phi Program consists of online learning modules and facilitated discussions.
FALL 2020 PAYMENTS
Bid Day $135
This covers your first installment of Fraternity dues and fees and is paid on the Phi Sigma Sigma website. Your welcome box will be shipped immediately following payment of this installment.
This covers the second installment of Fraternity dues and fees as well as your one-time initiation fee. Initiation fees vary depending on your chapter's badge selection. This must be paid in order to be eligible for initiation.
Varies on Participation
Because of COVID-19, we will temporarily be switching to a "pay-as-you-go" format for chapter events, based on the activities you decide to participate in.
The chapter leadership will be encouraged to minimize costs and overhead due to the economic impact of COVID-19. However, there are ongoing operational expenses we anticipate members will pay such as composite, Panhellenic council dues, etc. Beyond that, members will maintain control of their financial commitments through the responsible authorization of charges to their account.
