Membership is principally by chapter invitation that may be extended by any active PDK member. The sponsored initiate must be of good character and must declare an interest in and commitment to the accomplishment of Phi Delta Kappa’s goals and objectives. Should an individual be interested in membership and not know a Chapter member, he or she can contact Chapter Co-Presidents Joan Gilbert or Susan Muirhead.

Under PDK’s new membership procedure, however, self-nominations are also considered. If you are interested in membership, please see the application for membership form (linked below), or contact our Vice-President for Membership, Duffy Brookes with questions, either by phone at (860) 872-4477 or email . You may also contact any of the officers (see Chapter Officers Link) or members.

It’s almost never too late to bring new members into Phi Delta Kappa! Members are encouraged to promote professional involvement by sponsoring their peers into the chapter. email the candidate’s name, a contact phone number, and the name of at least one PDK sponsor or call the Vice President for Membership, Duffy Brookes at (860) 872-4477.

The initiation cost is $100.00, which includes international dues and initiation fees, annual local chapter dues, PDK pin, and shingle. A subscription to Kappan is included in your national dues.
