Thank you all for an incredible 2014! Let’s make 2015 an even more eventful year by
accomplishing the goals we have already established for our chapters, districts
It is time to review our chapters Strategic Action Plans (SAPs) to
note the status of the activities/goals we proposed for our chapters. Have we achieved those we set for 2014? Are some goals and activities on-going? Do we need to revise some that did not prove
to be realistic? Look at these questions
as you review your plans and determine where you wish to direct your chapter’s
attention in 2015. The Mu State SAP
Committee will also review the state SAP and share the results with all
presidents have the Chapter President 2014 Annual
Report due February 01, 20154. This
report is an opportunity to share your chapter’s accomplishments for the first
year of your biennium. Fifteen (15) of
the eighty-eight (88) chapter presidents have reported as the as the date of
this posting. Contact will be made
regularly until 100% are received.
I have visited numerous chapters throughout the state and know of
some fantastic projects you are involved in that are both rewarding to DKG and
beneficial to your community, district, state and the Society. Many worthwhile programs are supported by
chapters with various fund raisers – scholarships and grants, early career
educators, women and children’s shelters, books for children from pre-natal to
middle school, food pantries and many others.
Be sure you include your projects and means of supporting them in your
report. Your outreach is greatly
appreciated by all recipients.
Let us continue with the things that fulfill the purposes, vision
and mission of our Society.
