  • Join PBKNCA

    • One of the perks of membership is connecting with other Phi Beta Kappa members in your area. The PBKNCA is the association of Phi Beta Kappa members in northern California. They offer free membership to new initiates (like you) and have a LinkedIn group once you join. Visit https://pbknca.com and click the Join tab for details. Our chapter connects with PBKNCA during the annual scholarship process. Applications are open to graduate students who are PBK members and attend certain northern California colleges and universities. 
  • Order Phi Beta Kappa certificates, keys, pins

    • You can order Phi Beta Kappa graduation regalia and keepsakes (cords, pins, keys, stoles, certificates and more) from the pbk.org website at Shop PBK. The merchant's name is Hand and Hammer (not Phi Beta Kappa); they are the official source for PBK items. Anything you purchase can be shipped directly to you for a small fee (a personalized certificate is $7.50 + 5.00 shipping). There are a number of pin and key styles to choose from, and many are reasonably priced. Even the small ones are personalized with "UC Davis" and the year of your election.
