Active Membership

It is important to maintain active chapter membership. Active chapter membership helps us create and realize the future of Phi Kappa Phi at Duquesne University as a vital resource and opportunity and participate in local chapter events. Active chapter members are also eligible for many national and local benefits. Active membership status requires paying your national Society dues as well as chapter dues annually.

Chapter Dues

For information on how to do this, please contact our chapter secretary, Mr. Robert Behary, or email us at and we will forward your email.
