by: William H. Walker (Beta Tau – Mississippi State ’07) Director of Alumni Engagement
Rest assured, this project is sanctioned by KA, your information will not be sold, and any purchases will benefit the Order.
Kappa Alpha Order is excited to announce the launch of the 2015 Alumni Directory. This is one of many exciting projects for our upcoming 150th Anniversary. The directory will be published and available beginning in 2015. This will be the 15th edition of the Alumni Directory for the nearly 150 year history of Kappa Alpha Order. Learn more about this Alumni Directory project through a common set of questions and answers.
We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a 30 year-old company located in Dallas, TX, that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation. This project allows Kappa Alpha Order to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our members and how we can better serve you and our future members.
You may also be asked to give an honorary gift to the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation. This will be an unrestricted gift and will support the Sesquicentennial Celebration.
Since there have been nearly 160,000 initiates in our history, over 120,000 of those still living, PCI will be contacting alumni in different waves. At some point over the next several months, you should receive an email and/or a postcard from PCI. Both the email and postcard will have a number for you to call and ensure that your information is up to date. You may also receive a phone call. You will be able to purchase a directory while speaking with the PCI representative. Please be assured that PCI is a legitimate company and that your information will be kept secure and confidential.
Should you have any questions, I’d be happy to help as best as I can, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-463-1865.
