Beta-Psi Alumni Association - Arkansas State University
Alumni Association Dues
Annual membership dues for the Alumni Association are STILL ONLY $35 annually (Jan-Dec) or $500 lifetime dues.

These dues are payable via an ONLINE transaction, by check via mail or in person at any event.

Membership Dues are not tax deductible.


Where do your Membership Dues/Donations Go?
We never want to appear to “always” focus on money but do want you to know what your Alumni Dues are going for.  We also don't want fraters to think it's ONLY or even MAINLY for the locals to tailgate during football season.

An annual breakout will look like:
(est’s based on history):
$150 - taxes, p.o. box, bank box; 
$950 - tent rental/season;
$300-500/ per tailgate
(for 80-100) for major dates 
$150-300 for small events/weeknight tailgates/regional reunions
            (much of these costs are recovered by donations at the tailgates)
$500+/- - Occasional chapter support throughout the year
$500+/- - Annual "Bond" and Newsletter expenses

The Bond was $750 x2 but we cut to about $475 by ONLY printing/mailing to those without emails and now going to 1/yr. We can do a postcard “mini-Bond” for a 2nd edition, if necessary. 

So, you can see it’s nothing to spend a net $2,500 - 3,000 +/- a yr.  With only 20-30 Annual Dues Payers (avg) at $35, we have to dip into our account made up from historical gifts, many being 1x Lifetime Memberships.  Of course, we are blessed with misc donations & on-site extra donations at events which cut the deficit so we don’t decrease too rapidly. 
.
With the House Fund being so important, we chose not to raise Dues or ask for and extra donations.  But it’s important we communicate what your dues go for especially since many of you live too far to enjoy the local events.  That’s just a portion of our obligations, so you can see your support goes to the good of ALL!

 

2020 Levels of Donations to Beta-Psi TKE
 Alumni Association:
 
We believe that the essential elements of true brotherhood are love, charity, and esteem; these are the triple obligations of every brother in the bond.

After you have paid your Basic Membership Dues of $35 Annually (Jan - Dec), you are encouraged to become a higher level donor to support the workings of YOUR Alumni Assoc. We work diligently to remain accountable, transparent & good stewards of all investments.

These may be given in Honor of a fellow frater - or anyone - you feel has been a positive impact in your TKE Experience OR in Memory of a frater who has passed away.

Start a "Dues Drives" for Lifetime Member status
for a significant frater from your era:

 
 
This can be someone living who you want to get with your pledge class, etc & start a drive or a member who has passed away & you want them to stay close to the Chapter/Alumni Association.


Lifetime Membership Drives have been started for:

Frater Craig "Spunky" Cornett, #1090
Frater Cornett pledged TKE in 1986 & graduated in 1989. 
Spunky and Darren "BUTTERWORTH" Beckwith hosted some great events at the Teke house called "LATE NIGHT at the Teke House"  .... There would be people from all the other fraternities and sororities attend! It is a fond memory for those of us from the mid 80's....

Frater Chris "Frog" Hardy, #1023
Frater Chris pledged in Fall 1983 & was initiated in April 1984.  You could find him alongside Blytheville childhood friend & pledge brother Chris Graves spinning tunes to most of our drop-ins & dances.  Well, these hi-tech dudes used cassette tapes!!
