How We Invest Your Membership Dues
During the 2020 school year, the majority of your dues will be invested in building, furnishing and decorating the new Pike Chapter Room.
When the Pikes took possession of their new Chapter Room it was only “roughed out”. Our new space consisted of four bare walls plust basic electrical connections. Going forward the Pikes are required to only use contractors approved by the University. This will result in significant material and labor costs going forward. For example, last spring the membership dues and donations provided by Alumni Association covered the $6,000.00 cost of installation of the floor by an approved supplier.
In addition your donations and dues to provide the following:
Funds to offset the cost of Rush, the Smoker, Alumni Weekend and Founders' Day.
Funds for travel, lodging, and registration for both Pike regional and national training plus the annual convention.
Provided direct and confidential financial support to key upperclassmen who otherwise would have had to withdraw from the fraternity and possibly the University due to their student debt load.
