Association Awards

Alumni Association Distinguished Service Key

The Alumni Association Distinguished Service Key is the highest honor that a recognized Alumni Association of Alpha Phi Omega may receive. The award is an orange key that displays the Greek letters of the Fraternity in gold.  This key is given to members in recognition of their service to their local alumni association.  You may contact the president of the local alumni association to learn how to nominate a brother for this honor.

Nominations can be made to We will collate nominations received and ask for volunteers to form an awards committee if needed.

In addition, we are looking to identify those of you who already received these awards in recent years. We’d like to get a picture of you receiving it and a bio on Don’t be shy! Submissions will highlight the good work our members have accomplished, further our mission of promoting APO to new Eagles, and help guide future award nominations.
