Many chapters have famous alumni. In some cases, there may be buildings on your campus named for them or scholarships named in their honor. Occasionally, Phi Mu Delta recognizes the accomplishments of our alumni with two different honors. The Distinguished Alumni Chapter recognizes the accomplishments of alumni who have contributed greatly to their professions or community. The Distinguished Service Chapter recognizes those alumni who have significantly served the National organization or their local chapter. The Distinguished Service Chapter shall consist of alumni who have served the National Fraternity, its chapters, and alumni associations, alumni chapters, trust funds, foundation, or other operational affiliates in a superior and unusual manner. The Distinguished Alumni Chapter shall consist of alumni who have contributed greatly to the advancement of their community and/or profession.
Election to these chapters shall be considered the highest honor, which may be bestowed upon a member of Phi Mu Delta. Members of the National Council not holding certified membership in Distinguished Serviced or Distinguished Alumni Chapters after the adoption of these criteria in May of 1967, shall be ineligible for election as members of the chapters during their terms of active service on the National Council.
