What is Associate Membership?
(As defined by our CBL)
Associate Members – The following persons, not otherwise falling under any of the other classifications of membership, who subscribe to the cardinal principles of leadership, friendship and service, upon endorsement by a basic organizational unit after undergoing orientation, may be conferred Associate Membership by the Board of Directors under such guidelines as may be established by the General Assembly:
- A person who is a member of any national organization of Alpha Phi Omega in foreign countries;
- A person who has actively and consistently cooperated and participated in the activities of the Alpha Phi Omega;
- The spouse of a member in good standing who had participated and cooperated in the activities and projects of any organizational unit;
- The children of parents, both of whom are members in good standing.
An associate member may convert his membership to collegiate under the guidelines as may be prescribed by the General Assembly, as formulated by the Commission on Membership and approved by the Board of Directors.
Any person who has failed to complete his pledgeship without justifiable cause or has been expelled shall not be eligible for associate membership.
