Who is eligible to receive a Commemorative Medallion?
The most frequent recipients of commemorative medallions (also referred to as honorary medallions) are honorary members of your chapter. Ambassadors, visiting heads of states, college and university presidents, and government officials are some of the people who have received the commemorative medallions. These are people whom you do not expect to be involved in the day-to-day operations of Phi Beta Delta. However, they have contributed in some way to your chapter, and you wish to pay homage to them by awarding them a medallion. Other recipients of the commemorative medallion are active members whom you wish to honor even further because of specific acts of internationalism that they have performed. Remember to include the information about your honorary members when your send us your Membership List Form.
