At the annual meeting, we will review our bylaws, elect the new Board, and discuss future scholarship fundraisers. (We give an annual scholarship open to juniors and seniors at eleven local universities with PBK chapters).  We will also consider ideas and suggestions which further support our purpose, “the union of the members of Phi Beta Kappa in the greater Boston region to promote scholarship, friendship, and cultural interests.”

This will be an opportunity to meet other PBK Boston members and possibly to consider becoming more involved in our unique organization, including participation in our Board to assist with activity, outreach, and development functions.

Dec 08, 2020 PBK Boston Poetry Slam

Join members of the Boston Association of Phi Beta Kappa for a Boston-area Poetry Slam for any PBK members and friends wishing to read their own poetry or that of favorite authors or just tune in and listen.

Why:  To promote the PBK Society’s goals of friendship, scholarship, and cultural interests among members and to introduce members to each other in a relaxed but structured atmosphere.

When:  Tuesday evening, December 8th, from 7:30 to 9 pm, via Zoom (see below to register for the Zoom meeting via EventBrite)

What:  We will start with introductions and socializing and then proceed to the poetry readings. Please feel free to offer any type of poetry, being mindful that the aim is to promote a group spirit in which everyone can share and find uplifting in the tradition of learning and the pursuit of wisdom.

There is no need to bring a selection yourself, if you have been rushed and haven’t had time to consider a choice, as there are those of us with many favorites to read.

 We will discuss the readings as the spirit moves us and use the discussions as opportunities for further sharing and socializing. We are excited to provide this space for our community to come together and make new connections.

How to Register:  Please sign up through EventBrite at

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the required Zoom link for joining the meeting.
