As active Brothers pass to Alumni status, they owe to this Fraternity their support and their advice. Our common bond is never severed and our oaths and obligations persist. So long as each of us is a true Brother, we are Brothers for Life!
The purpose of this program is to increase National Alumni Dues paying Brothers.
Collegiate Chapters and Alumni Chapters will be encouraged to solicit Alumni Brothers to pay their National Alumni Dues. The target population of Alumni Brothers should be the following:
While the preferred payment will be annual dues, life memberships will be accepted as well. The reason is that even though life memberships are a larger payment, the funds are restricted to a special account and are utilized only for distribution of benefits to life members. General annual dues, including Collegiate and Alumni, go into the general operating funds of the National Office and allow the Fraternity to increase its support of all Brothers by increasing our benefits.
During the 69th Grand Council in Omaha, the Collegiate dues and the Alumni dues were both increased in order to offset increasing financial demands by the National Office. By increasing the number of annual Alumni dues payers, we may in the near future be able to decrease the Collegiate Brothers annual dues amount.
Brothers should be aware of the PLEI Hollenback Fund which provides support for Collegiate Brothers to attend national meetings. Brothers should encourage their Alumni Brothers to donate specifically to this fund if they are wishing to provide additional support.
Collegiate Chapters will receive credit for each Alumnus paying their dues from their chapter.
As an Alumnus is contacted to pay Annual Alumni Dues or Life Memberships they should be submitted on the National Website or by the dues notice they may have received in the mail.
For each 15 dues paying Alumni, the Collegiate Chapter will receive one complimentary Grand Council/LDS registration that summer. Chapters will be notified when they have reached each multiple of 15. Registration will be reimbursed to the Collegiate Chapter following confirmed attendance at the national meeting. For newer Collegiate Chapters, without Alumni Brothers, each will receive one complimentary registration for their first two national meetings. This will allow time to graduate Brothers and begin the process of building their Alumni base.
In previous years, past life members will not count toward the chapter’s total numbers for this campaign, but there is a NEW OPTION for past life members this year. If past life members would like to make a $80 donation it WILL BE counted as alumni paying dues.
We are Brothers for Life and we will always need the help of the other.
