Welcome from the Regional Director
I hope that all of you had a blessed holiday season filled with joy, love, and peace. The New Year represents new beginnings and opportunities for us as sisters to “nurture the ivy” within each of us and as sorors serving all mankind in Launching New Dimensions of ServiceSM.
During the month of January, we will celebrate two important dates in the life of our sorority — our founding and our incorporation. Sorors, we are so blessed to have sustained our sisterhood with global service to others for 108 years and counting. This is what happens when individuals are committed to something greater than themselves. This is simply what Alpha Kappa Alpha women do!
We will commemorate our founding with sisterly acts of love as we celebrate our Second International Sisterly Relations Day on January 15, 2016. We also will begin our individual chapter and joint Founders’ Day celebrations across the region. How appropriate that our first Community Impact Day of 2016 will fall in the middle our two milestone dates with the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Dr. King shared our vision of service to others so let us make a great impact on January 18, 2016. Let us continue with that loving spirit of community service with our second Community Impact Day, the Pink Goes Red for Heart Health Day in February.
Over the next six months, we will devote thousands of service hours to our five program targets, Community Impact Days and partnerships that will benefit thousands of men, women, and children. I want to thank you in advance for your continued service because sorors of the Notable North Atlantic Region are always Packed, Polished, and Prepared to Serve.
In addition to our service projects, we must continue our quest for lifelong Alpha Kappa Alpha learning and sisterly fellowship. I know that you are making plans to join me and the sorors of the “Small but Mighty” Cluster V at the 85th North Atlantic Regional Conference in Hartford, Connecticut March 30 to April 3. Cluster V sorors want you to know that they are PACKED... they are POLISHED... and they are PREPARED TO SHINE as they prepare to Serve and Honor (You) In New England.
I look forward to visiting with you around the region and participating in your upcoming celebrations and activities. Please be sure to post your activities on social media so sorors can feel as if they were at your activities in near real time.
