Vaccination Registration, Volunteer Opportunity, and Pandemic Assistance
“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
On January 7, 2021, Members of The Board of Directors of The Phi Beta Kappa New York Association released a statement regarding the political violence in Washington, D.C. Please see the attached statement to the left.
"We stand united with members of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community, and all those who experience prejudice, hate crimes, terror, and threats."
On March 19, 2021, Members of The Board of Directors of The Phi Beta Kappa New York Association released a statement condemning bigotry and racist attacks in the wake of the murders in Atlanta. Please see the statement to the left, which includes readings and resources.
With vaccine rollout in full swing across New York, many eligible recipients have yet to register due to difficulties navigating the online sign-up process. In response, the PBKNY Young Professionals launched a COVID-19 vaccine registration initiative that will pair YP or PBKNY members with members who wish to schedule a vaccination date.
If you are a PBKNY member who requires assistance registering for a vaccination:
If you would like to be paired with a member who will help you secure a vaccination date and complete the necessary forms, register here.
If you are a YP and/or PBKNY member interested in volunteering:
Register here to become a volunteer!
If you are a PBKNY member who requires any additional COVID-19 related assistance:
We want to hear how we can best support our members! Do you need assistance getting groceries, learning to use Zoom, alleviating social isolation, or anything else pandemic-related? Register here to let us know how we can help you.
While at this time we cannot guarantee that we will be able to pair everyone with a volunteer, we will try to meet the demand as best as possible.
