The Badger Skulls Alumni Association is the officially recognized alumni chapter of the Alpha Theta Chapter of the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity at the University of Wisconsin. It was formed April 18, 2009, at the annual undergraduate Parent-Alumni Banquet in Madison, Wis.
By-laws were adopted at this meeting and eight alumni and three undergraduate members were elected to serve as the BSAA Board of Directors. The board has since evolved into a 12-member body consisting of all alumni members. Four of the twelve board seats are specifically reserved for recent graduates.
The BSAA is a non-profit non-stock corporation formed under Chapter 181 of Wisconsin Statues, repealed and recreated by 1997 Wisconsin Act 79. The association is organized and operated in accordance with the meaning and provisions of Section 501(c)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Most board meetings are held monthly via teleconference. Board members meet in person at least twice a year, once in February for planning purposes and once in April for the annual BSAA membership meeting held in Madison.
The BSAA’s mission statement is to perpetuate the existence of the Alpha Theta Chapter of the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity at the University of Wisconsin-Madison by supporting the undergraduate members and uniting its alumni.
The BSAA partially executes its mission statement by various financial expenditures such as:
- $230,000 for the purchase of commercial property
- $225,000 for the build-out and furnishing of the property
- $44,000 in financial support to Alpha Theta since 2009
- $16,500 for recruitment workshops, consulting and coaching
- $9,000 in Founder’s Scholarship for re-chartering members
- $3,500 to for travel expenses to the 2012 Grand Chapter
- $1,500 for public leadership scholarships
Alumni dues and donations help support the undergraduate chapter and preserve the association’s long-term investments. Please help us continue to support the undergraduate members.
