AKA members attend national seminar

Sixteen members of the local Alumnae Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority joined approximately 8,000 other national and international members in Nashville, Tenn. to participate in the sorority’s biannual Leadership Seminar. The purpose of the seminar was to engage, inspire, inform and challenge the members in all stages of leadership development and to empower sustainability in delivering service of excellence.

Workshops, forums, summits and roundtables were used to implement the four tracks of the AKA University: leadership in Alpha Kappa Alpha and members’ professional careers; understanding the International Program, procedures and protocols; preparing undergraduates for leadership growth and development in Alpha Kappa Alpha; and preparing members to assume executive roles at all levels of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.

Supporting the current international administration’s theme, “Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service,” the members of the local Alumnae Chapter, Delta Xi Omega, have been visible in the community implementing the tenants of the international program, service projects and Community Impact Days.

Chapter members have partnered with J. F. Hurley Family YMCA, Chi Eta Phi nursing sorority, and heart health care professionals to host blood pressure checks and heart health and stroke seminars; serve dinner at Rowan Helping Ministries; recognize long term family caregivers; spotlight HBCUs and local entrepreneurs; partner with First Calvary Baptist Church and Novant Health to provide materials on breast cancer risk factors and access to a mammogram through the Mobile Mammogram Unit; make and donate pillowcase dresses and shirts to children in Haiti; donate approximately 130 pair of eyeglasses to the local Lions Club; tutor local high school juniors and seniors in completing college/university admission applications; and participate in the Family Crisis Council Domestic Violence Vigil.

Sh’Myra Moore is program chairman and Lillian Morgan is the chapter president.
