 [Lambda Theta Phi] Membership Benefits MESSAGE FROM NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF MEMBERSHIP Dears Brothers, The fraternity continues to grow by leaps and bounds as we approach a new collegiate year. Every year, our membership continues to grow larger and exceed the previous record. As the number of undergraduate and alumni brothers grows, the National Executive Board wants to present a comprehensive membership benefits package that highlights the benefits of becoming an active brother of Lambda Theta Phi. At a minimum, dues paying members are afforded all the rights of an active brother, including the right to vote and the right to run for leadership positions on a Sector, Regional or National level. You will find in this package a host of benefits ranging from discounted movie tickets and car insurance, to supplemental accident insurance for eligible active members. Members are also able to participate in our National Conference and Convention at a reduced fee. In addition to the numerous material benefits to be gained through active membership, it is our hope that Brothers also take advantage of the numerous intangible benefits as well: professional and social networking opportunities, mentorship opportunities, career associations, community service, leadership development, and above all, continuing the life long journey of Brotherhood with each other. We will continue to review and expand our benefit package to ensure that the benefits we offer meet the needs of our membership and provide value. If you have any questions regarding any of these benefits, please feel free to contact me at membership@lambda1975.org. Fraternally, Jose A.

Lambda Theta Phi is ever present in the lives of our brothers and hopes to bring some sunshine to their lives when they need it most. With this thought in mind, Lambda Theta Phi created the Sunshine Fund. The Lambda Sunshine Fund enables our brotherhood to provide some financial assistance to our active membership in need, upon request. Although the fraternity is a nonprofit organization and operates on collected membership dues, we believe the brotherhood shows its strength when one of our own needs its most. Who Qualifies The Lambda Sunshine Funds benefits the active membership in good standing of the fraternity, which includes undergrad and alumni brothers. WHAT The Lambda Sunshine Funds will be funded by the general membership dues and special fundraisers held by brothers. The National Fraternity will allocate up to $10,000 to this fund annually.
