    In 1908, the founders of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated gave life to a very special bond of sisterhood that we hold near and dear to our hearts. For almost 104 years, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority has continued to serve locally and globally with honor and distinction. The theme of the Cluster IV Founders’ Day, “Capturing Global Service Through the Seasons” is in tribute to those sorors who have contributed to the perpetuation of the ideals of our great sisterhood as established by our beloved founders.

    Pi Mu Omega Chapter will host the Cluster IV Founders’ Day Luncheon on February 18, 2012 at The Westin Hotel located at 555 Fellowship Road in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. Our own North Atlantic Regional Director, Soror Constance R. Pizarro, will be in attendance for this special event. The luncheon will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Soror Adriane Blair Wise of Washington, DC will be the guest speaker. During the luncheon, a Golden Soror from each graduate chapter of Cluster IV will be recognized as a “Pearl of Distinction” for making notable contributions and providing exemplary service over the seasons in carrying out the sorority’s mission of “service to all mankind.”

    Vendors will also be available starting at 9:30 AM.

    In keeping with our mission of helping others, a service project to benefit the senior members of the community will take place. Each soror is requested to bring to the luncheon one can of “heart healthy” soup which will be donated to the food pantry of a senior program in the Willingboro/Burlington County area. Additionally, each chapter in Cluster IV is requested to make donations of soup to a senior program in their local area during the period of January 1 – February 12, 2012.

    Registration for the luncheon will be available on the North Atlantic Region website from January 9, 2012 until February 10, 2012. A paper registration form along with a chapter check, certified check, or money order must be postmarked by February 10, 2012.

    During the Alpha Kappa Alpha Public Policy Conference in the nation’s Capitol, September 19-21, 2011, our International President Carolyn House Stewart unveiled a yearlong voter registration and education offensive to reach, mobilize and impact hundreds of thousands of citizens throughout the communities nationwide that AKA serves. The campaign will be driven by the theme: Alpha Kappa Alpha C.A.R.E.S., an acronym for Collaborate, Advocate, Register, Educate, and Stimulate.

    In making the announcement, Soror Carolyn noted that the campaign is particularly critical because with the election one year away, there is so much at stake.  She stated, “These are critical times and Alpha Kappa Alpha is concerned about how this economic crisis has impacted the lives of so many of our members and the communities we serve. The lack of jobs, economic stability, access to higher education, poverty, healthcare and treatment options, voter empowerment and the environment are issues we will address with our policy makers and elected officials in D.C.  Local, state and national elections impact all of us and the quality of life we will pass on to future generations. Our vote is our voice. Our voices will be heard and AKA C.A.R.E.S. is a collaborative effort to mobilize citizens. Our destiny awaits us and every citizen should participate in the discussions about of future as the changing landscape becomes less inclusive of minorities, the unemployed and the poor.”

    Sorors are encouraged to attend the 2012 AKA Day @ Capitol in Albany, NY where once again we demonstrate our commitment  to mobilize citizens as well as have our voices heard as we collectively express our concerns to those New York State local legislators who will be in attendance.  With the support of our Regional Director, Soror Constance R. Pizarro, online registration will be available on the North Atlantic Regional website until Friday, February 3, 2012.

    In addition to a tour of the White House, the EYL students enjoyed the Christmas decorations, including those of Bo the Obama family dog! 

    The EYL program participants also teamed up with Xi Omega Sorors to donate 157 Christmas gifts (48 pairs of gloves, 55 pairs of socks, 24  hats,  21 scarves, 2 hand warmers, and 1 throw) to the homeless women who reside at Calvary Women's' Services at 5th and K Street, NW, DC.   

    Emerging Young Leaders (EYL) is a signature program of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. It is designed to impact the lives of 10,000 girls in grades six through eight by providing leadership development, civic engagement, enhanced academic preparation and character building. The increasing demands of the twenty-first century mandate our youth to be better leaders at a younger age making smart choices with positive consequences.
