It is exciting that you and I are part of Mu State DKG this biennium. Every member has the opportunity and responsibility to share ideas and to work and serve to make our chapters and state continue to grow. DKG and Mu State provide opportunities to enjoy fellowship and contribute as “Key Women Educators.”
It is critical that we continue to help our chapters grow. This past biennium 84 chapters developed Strategic Action Plans that included membership as one of their primary goals. Let’s continue to use these as we develop our society and find a place to share and use our interests and talents.
Below are two quotes that I have come to admire and use, so I hope you will find them valuable as well:
“People support what they help to create...” by K.C. Ingram
“Happiness is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” by Helen Keller
Mu State 2015-2017 Vision:
Stress the honor of being invited for membership in our Society, the basis of professional qualifications, leadership potential, and personal qualities to promote growth. Include members of all generations in activities and purposes of our Society.
RECRUIT NEW MEMBERS AND RETAIN CURRENT MEMBERS
MAKE YOUR MEETINGS FUN
GIVE MEMBERS A PURPOSE TO ATTEND
DEVELOP FRIENDSHIP AMONG ALL MEMBERS

I ask you to attend state, district, and chapter meetings; find, attend, and provide workshops; become involved; share your talents; develop friendships between DKG sisters; and make everyone aware of their importance and need within our society. Enjoy!
Love and blessings,
Gerry B. Hacker, President
