Does Phi Beta Kappa in the Philippines has a legal relationship with Phi Beta Kappa USA?

nope.
Faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
The brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
Economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
Government should be of laws rather than of men;
Earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
And Service to humanity is the best work of life.

Just some local youth organization that my friends pioneered and brought to school... It grew fast that we had around 40 members on one-year level and some college students got initiated aswell... Sadly it got eaten up by politics(internal and external) at the same time the influential members of the chapter left the organization and joined up other more formal college-only fraternities. With internal and external politics hurting the local chapter and influential members leaving to join other organizations; other members became inactive while others followed what the influential members did hence they joined other organizations not necessarily the same organization as the influential members joined in... Technically it was a story gone bad and it died... Ang ganda ng memories doon noon our chapter had two colonies... One colony was all-girls, the other colony was co-ed, and the main chapter all-male... Technically 3 schools one chapter yun

Why the politics? The main chapter interfered with our operation somehow suspended our president... due to conducting initiation without the proper officers needed present... Probably direct HQ interference happened because we were growing too fast and was gaining too much influence as a chapter in the organization hance HQ did politics on our chapter.

I have talked to a Phi Beta Kappa employee at their National Headquarters in Washington DC (about 10 miles from where I am right now). They are in the processing of taking legal action against (suing) the group calling themselves Phi Beta Kappa of the Philippines in order to make them go away.

Phi Beta Kappa is an honor society in the United States and for Phi Beta Kappa the *School* and its administration apply to have a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa at their school. A group of students wishing to have Phi Beta Kappa at their school would be told to go to the administration and have *them* decide if they want to apply.

Right now Phi Beta Kappa only has chapters in the United States, however there has been at least one Canadian University which has considered application and would be considered the same as a US University if it did so.

So, *FAKE*.

Q: Why are fraternities and sororities considered Greek?

—SB & CB





A: Pretty much the only thing Greek about fraternities is their names, which usually consist of two or three ancient Greek letters. They owe much more to the rites of Freemasonry than they do to the land of Homer.

            College fraternities are American inventions that have their origins in literary and debate clubs formed on campuses in the early 1700s. Back then, colleges were rigid places that taught only religion and the classics.

            These clubs let students discuss novel, contemporary themes and subjects with unprecedented freedom of speech, and often from a humanistic angle.

            Steeped in Greco-Roman studies, the students often gave their clubs names inspired by classical heroes or ideals: the Ciceronian Society, for example. Many of the clubs were secret, because colleges often viewed them as threats to academic power.

            Around 1750, an especially secret club appeared on the campus of the College of William and Mary in Virginia. It was known as F.H.C., an abbreviation of a now-forgotten Latin phrase. Thomas Jefferson was a member; he noted the group accumulated a fine library, but mostly just drank at the local tavern and had many a “Debauch.”

            In 1773, a similar group known as P.D.A. (another Latin abbreviation) sprang up, only to quickly degrade into a drinking club as well. Intrigued by these failures, student John Heath in 1776 founded a similar but more serious group—one that still exists today in the form of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

            Heath gave his club the Latin name Societas Philosophiae (“Philosophical Society”) and the Greek motto, “Love of Wisdom the Guide of Life.” To keep it secret in public discussions, members called it either “S.P.” (the initials of the name) or “Phi Beta Kappa” (the initials of the Greek motto). Eventually even the members forgot the group’s real name and took to calling it Phi Beta Kappa.

            All fraternities since have followed this method of naming their clubs (usually inventing Greek mottos to back it up); they became known as “Greek-letter” groups. Or today, just “Greek” organizations.

            Phi Beta Kappa also established the fraternity practices of secret rituals, pledge pins and the chapter system of expanding to other colleges—all borrowed directly from Masonic traditions. (Many members of Phi Beta Kappa were Masons.)

            Phi Beta Kappa held serious debates on such topics as religious liberty, slavery and democracy.          
In 1826-27, three fraternities formed at New York’s Union College.

            Kappa Alpha, Sigma Phi and Delta Phi, known as the “Union Triad,” became the models for the modern fraternity system: secretive and with Greek-letter names, but more social than scholarly. Such fraternities spread quickly and soon supplanted the old literary societies.

I was the one who mentioned the lawsuit and that was after talking to someone at the Phi Beta Kappa (USA)Headquarters.

Of all the Fraternities with names that are the same as the ones in the USA, Phi Beta Kappa of the Philippines seems the one with the most stress that they are members of the same group as the one in the USA and as far as I can tell, the most wrong about it.

goodluck though on filing the case here. if theyre not a registered organization with the Philippine SEC, PBK USA might find it next to impossible to find these guys.

Nope, not registered with the SEC. (or at least nothing I could find on the http://iregister.sec...et?param=search ).

All I've found are websites for a few chapters, and no addresses. I wish PBK USA luck, but I'm not sure I'd want to be the ones trying to track them down, or actually trying to sue.

Actually matagal na silang nag exist siguro di lang naasikaso ang recognition.Pero if mag apply sila legally walang impossible na maapprove sila kasi di na ata basta basta iba nilang alumni as far as you see thier alumni list sa website nila,Parang matagal na rin silang nagsimula as PBK sa Pinas.

they can exist as a seperate unrelated but similarly named organization like ATO Philippines. they would however revert back to their own local history, traditions, and own identity.

ang alam ko matagal na exixting yang PBK.the thing is,PBK ia an honor society in the US.im sorry but i dont know if the PBK phils.practice the same kind of membership(selective)?so,it means they will ever qualify to the standard.

You must be elected to membership in Phi Beta Kappa by the chapter where you received your bachelor's, master's, or Ph.D. degree. We must receive confirmation from the chapter before you can be registered as a member of the Society
(source PBK website)
does this mean that you must be a graduate student before joining? then,the concept of membership of PBK phils is all wrong.pls correct me if im wrong. tnx.

As I understand it, you receive an invitation to join Phi Beta Kappa as a Senior (4th year) in college. (I think even second semester senior). This is based on grades, not on any concept of being liked by other people who are in it. The chapters are run by the university...

Yes, the concept of membership of PBK phils is all wrong...
