Frequently Asked Questions Regarding PTK Catalyst 2020

Can I attend PTK Catalyst in-person?

To protect the health and safety of everyone, no attendees are allowed in-person. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us as we continue monitoring and making decisions regarding our event.

For reasons beyond our control, PTK’s 2020 Catalyst will be a digital-only event.

This is not a decision that we take lightly but is one that is in the best interest of our PTK family and friends.

If you are registered for PTK Catalyst, will you receive a PTK Catalyst Virtual Pass?

All PTK Catalyst registrations will be converted to a PTK Catalyst Virtual Pass at the cost of $250 per ticket. The partial refund of your original registration will be made available as quickly as possible. This conversion should be completed no later than March 18.

Do we need just one digital pass for the chapter or each individual?

Phi Theta Kappa is working diligently to bring you the first-ever PTK Catalyst live stream. We know you have high expectations for all of our events, and this one is no exception. While other large-scale conferences and gatherings have been cancelled, we have fully pivoted to an option that enables more people to experience PTK Catalyst than ever before — one that will continue the high-quality programming you have become accustomed to.

Please understand that the PTK Catalyst Virtual Pass functions the same way as a standard registration: every individual attendee must possess their own personal pass. We know you want to watch and fellowship with your chapter, but we also expect you to exhibit the personal integrity, honesty, and responsibility that comes with being a Phi Theta Kappa member.

If I am not currently registered for PTK Catalyst, how do I register for my virtual pass?

If you are an individual who is not yet registered for PTK Catalyst and are purchasing a Virtual Pass for yourself, click here.

If you are an advisor and wish to register multiple members of your chapter for Virtual Passes, click here.

Will I need high-speed internet to watch PTK Catalyst?

No. Catalyst will be streamed in both high- and standard-definition formats. Because of the popularity of most steaming services (i.e. Netflix), most network connections can handle high definition. If you experience slowdowns, we recommend using the link to deliver the experience in standard definition.

When is the last day I can get a refund for my PTK Catalyst Virtual Pass?

100% refunds for your PTK Virtual Pass will be available until April 13th. All cancellation requests must be submitted using the Refund Request Form.

If I cancelled my registration earlier last week and I was charged a cancellation fee, can I get that money back?

Yes, contact our Events Team at

What should I do about my hotel accommodations?

If you booked lodging in the Phi Theta Kappa housing block at either the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center or the Courtyard/Townplace Suites Grapevine, we have cancelled your reservation for you.

What about my airline reservations?

Please contact your airline carrier directly to inquire about cancelling your airline reservations. Phi Theta Kappa is not responsible for travel reservations or cancellation fees.

How Will We Elect New International Officers?

Every chapter with registered Catalyst attendees will select a voting delegate to cast the chapter vote for all International Officer elections. The chapter’s contact advisor will receive an email after registration closes with instructions on how to select a voting delegate. To vote in international officer elections, an individual must be designated as their chapter’s voting delegate and must hold a Virtual Pass. Voting will take place online during Catalyst.

Will the Association of Chapter Advisors Officer Election Take Place?

Yes. All advisors will receive an email with voting instructions shortly before Catalyst. You can read about the candidates here

Will Competitions be held Virtually?

No. Speech, Scholar Bowl and Job Interview competitions have been cancelled.

I am a Corporate or College Sponsor. Do I get a refund?
