DSC & DSS Members

Established at the 1929 Conclave, the Distinguished Service Chapter is the highest honor bestowed on a member that has been active in the Fraternity for at least 10 years and who has distinguished himself with outstanding contributions and extraordinary service to the Fraternity and/or in his respective communities.

Membership in the Distinguished Service Chapter must be recommended and approved by the awardees’ chapter, region and by the General Board of the Fraternity before being voting upon at the International Conclave. Former Phi Beta Sigma International President Dr. Parlett L. Moore described the Distinguish Service Chapter as “Sigma’s Hall of Fame.”

He said, “Our illustrious Brothers who have received this highest honor that Phi Beta Sigma bestows upon its members have contributed a full measure of service for the enrichment of our culture. They have made praise-worthy contributions to the cause of Sigma and to the cause of humanity.”

The Western Region Distinguished Service Society was established at the 1984 Regional Conference held in Seattle, WA. The Western Region Distinguished Service Society was created to recognize brothers long term work within the region, who may (or may not qualify for membership in the Distinguished Service Chapter.
