Fall 2019: Gearing Up for Keys to Action Week
Phi Beta Kappa associations across the country recently wrapped up Key Connections, one of our favorite parts of the year. The Key Connections event series is designed to welcome recent inductees and members who may have recently relocated, offering them a chance to network and connect in the spirit of Phi Beta Kappa’s emphasis on friendship and fellowship. Events ranged from classic networking meet-ups to an ice cream tasting in Baltimore, an escape room in Detroit, and a sports night in Seattle.
Though the temperature in DC is finally dropping for autumn, the momentum from Key Connections doesn’t have to! Many associations will be hosting events this fall and participating in Keys to Action Week to celebrate Phi Beta Kappa's 243rd anniversary on December 5. Our theme this year is "Aim for the Stars," a nod to the stars on our gold key from our founding and to our aspirations as we approach our 250th anniversary. We encourage Phi Beta Kappa members to reach out to their associations and suggest event ideas. DC and New York have recently hosted professional headshot events, and many associations do trivia nights, host book clubs, and visit area cultural attractions. We'd love your feedback on what you'd like to see from your local association!
