Membership Training Academy (MTA) is the Fraternity’s official program for men seeking membership in Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
The Boston (MA) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. seeks professional men who want to be a part of an organization that gives back to the community. The Chapter is predicated upon and dedicated to the principles of Achievement in every field of human endeavor. We seek men who serve as positive role models within our community who can help accomplish the goals and objectives of the Fraternity. Selection for membership is based solely upon mutuality of interest between the prospective member and the Fraternity; academic ability as reflected in scholastic accomplishment; loyalty to school and country; a will to sociality; and commitment to the demands of integrated living and learning.
A person who feels he would do the Fraternity a favor by joining is not worthy of membership. No one who holds himself superior to the Brotherhood of Kappa Alpha Psi® is worthy of this distinction.
To this Fraternity, the maker of the commitment becomes synonymous with the commitment itself. Membership in Kappa Alpha Psi® is a lifelong dedication to the ideas and lofty purposes of Kappa Alpha Psi, which considers for membership only those aspirants whose personal, social and academic qualifications are acceptable to both the College and Fraternity. Expectations concerning maturity and dedication are made upon new members and established members alike.
Maturity is more than simply reaching a certain age. Maturity to us means acceptance of reality, the ability to sacrifice and set goals, consideration of others, incisive judgment, emotional balance, development of social skills, intellectual competence, and moral rectitude. We expect our members to be mature.
Dedication means putting those characteristics of maturity into a lifelong program of action to advance the goals and purposes of Kappa Alpha Psi®. We expect our members to be dedicated.
But do not let personal goals supersede those of the Fraternity. A person who feels he would do the Fraternity a favor by joining is not worthy of membership. No one who holds himself superior to the Brotherhood of Kappa Alpha Psi® is worthy of this distinction.
Kappa Alpha Psi® is not interested in the simple accumulation of members and chapters. Its emphasis, however, is in the quality and integrity of its membership. Membership quality manifests itself through an intangible element of brotherhood we call “that Good Old Kappa Spirit.”
