Several Fraters have asked me “What exactly is a Charter Member? Is that different from a regular member?” so I’ll see if I can help explain it better here.
The short answer is that a Charter Member is not really a different status than a regular Member. I am qualifying any member who joined our association prior to us receiving our charter from Nationals, as a Charter Member because I think they deserve special recognition for their commitment to help us found this organization. If I didn’t get a good amount of interest from you all I wouldn’t have pursued setting this up, but your encouragement has really been a driving force behind its creation.
Charter Members have agreed to support our association without knowing exactly what was in store for them, and to me that means it must have required a lot of good faith, and great TKE spirit! It’s easy to want to join an already established, successful organization, but those of you who have already committed your support sight unseen have really impressed me.
For example, the budget will not be put in place until it is approved at our first business meeting coming up in a couple months. I have been able to outline our operational costs so far, and also propose a set amount for dues, but I won’t be asking for dues payments from our members until you all have a chance to vote on the budget. What I’ve been very impressed with is that several members have already contributed dues payments prior to the finalization of the budget, which is a tremendous support in covering our initial incorporation and chartering costs, and getting us off the ground. To me, this is exactly what being a Charter Member is all about, showing your committment to our Fraternity and helping us have a strong launch in any way that you can. If you are already a member and want to show your support for us in this way, the easiest method is to use the paypal links on the right side of our website’s home page. I promise it’s incredibly easy. As soon as we’ve gathered enough money to cover the initial costs of incorporation and chartering ($225.00), our Vice President will be submitting the application to TKE HQ and we will have the final piece of the puzzle. We will always be open for continued membership recruitment, but the window of opportunity to say you supported us strongly from the very beginning is quickly drawing to a close!
Thanks again to you all for your continued support.

One of the benefits of membership in any alumni association is the large number networking opportunities. Many TKEs go on to successful careers in a wide variety of industries because they are excellent at keeping in touch with other success-driven individuals. One of the goals of the TKE Mu-Omega Alumni Association is to extend the opportunity for all our members to get and stay in touch with other members and to act as a resource for our members when they would like guidance or support with their own career development.
This part of our organization will begin to take shape as each of us gets to know each other better. I have dedicated a page on this site to help raise awareness of which members represent which industries. If a member operates his own business and would like to promote it, we will link to it on this site as well. If you would like your information added to this section, please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add it promptly.
