Please join the Omicron Delta Chapter in welcoming the new members of our chapter.  Congratulations!  
It was wonderful to get to celebrate membership with so many of our new members!  Feel free to share this induction video with your family and friends.

During the chat section, phone numbers were blacked out for privacy.

Induction Ceremonies

Omicron Delta will typically host a few inductions each year.  Inductions are held in a virtual format.  New members are not required to attend a ceremony but they are encouraged for those that would like to celebrate their accomplishment. 

Membership packets are mailed directly by Sigma and generally go out within 60 days of your induction date.  Membership packets include a membership card and certificate but not an honor cord. 

If you wish to purchase an honor cord, please use the link provided: Sigma Honor Cord

Next steps...

1.     Invitation ... You will receive an invitation directly from Sigma Theta Tau by email with information on becoming a member and its benefits.  To ensure that your invitation is delivered, please add to your address book, and check your junk folder if needed. 

  • Once you receive your invitation, activating your membership is easy. The online form will ask you to confirm your contact information and will collect a $119 induction/membership fee. (Please pay special attention to the name field, as this is exactly how your membership certificate will be printed.) See below for more information on accepting membership based on induction attendance.

  • For some of you, this may be your second invitation because UOP once again named you as one of the best in your class.  The good news is you've already met all the criteria and now all you have to do is accept this honor and join Omicron Delta.  All members accept the same invitation, regardless of attending an induction.  

  • If you are already a member of Sigma through our chapter or another, you would not receive an additional invitation from Sigma.  But we would be honored to have you become a member of both chapters with dual membership, now or when you renew.  Since you are already a member of Sigma, you would not need to be officially inducted again.  But you are more than welcome to attend our induction to honor your achievements and learn what our chapter has to offer. Many nurses consider it an honor to become members of the honor societies of the various institutions they attended. The easiest and quickest way to have dual membership: Call Sigma Member Services at (317) 634-8171. Since you have already paid your fees to Sigma, you would only have to add the chapter fee of $39.


2.     Induction ... We would love to have you take part in our next virtual online induction so we can WELCOME you to Omicron Delta, and we encourage you to invite your family and friends to celebrate this honor.  Our virtual inductions are held in May and December. Please note: You do not need to attend an induction to become a member.  

Our next induction is on Sunday, December 17 at 5pm Pacific time. Once you have formally accepted your invitation for membership through Sigma, you will receive an invitation and link to our ceremony and reception.


3.     Certificate ... Within your information from Sigma, and this email, you should have all information necessary to understand membership. Sigma also informs members that their Certificates of Membership will be sent to them directly from Sigma within about 30 days of becoming a member and paying dues.
