A Message from Donna Butler
2017-2019 Beta State President

Dear Beta State Sisters,

What a wonderful time we had together at the International Convention in Austin, Texas from July 16-20! There were 45 Beta State members in attendance, and we marked our presence by wearing pink cowgirl hats that Executive Secretary, Libby Watson, had ordered for us. We enjoyed attending sessions, touring International Headquarters, visiting points of interest in and around Austin, eating together, and watching the 2 million plus bats fly at sunset from the Congress Street Bridge. I must admit that the marathon sessions that it took to consider the over 100 proposed amendments was often not a pleasant event, but it was necessary in order to keep The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International “forward moving ever.” I will discuss these changes at Fall Board on August 18, and will also have Webmaster, Madeline Buchanan, post some information on the website for all members to read.

And speaking of Fall Board, have you sent in your registration form and check made out to Alpha Chapter DKG? Registrar Bonnie Shanks wants to have a mailbox full everyday with registration forms! The deadline to register is Saturday, August 11. Fall Board will take place on Saturday, August 18 at Dalraida Church of Christ in Montgomery. Registration is from 9:30-10 that morning, and we will end our day together by 3 P.M. The registration form is on the website along with the schedule for the day showing the specific sessions that are offered. There are sessions for both professional and personal growth, so all Beta State members are welcome to attend. Active teachers can also receive professional development for this day. Certificates will be provided for all members who attend.

Are you making your plans yet for the Beta State Convention to be held February 22-24, 2019 at the Embassy Suites in Huntsville, AL.? The Convention Committee and I will share some details, along with the registration form, about this wonderful, exciting event which will mark the culmination of this biennium!

I look forward to beginning my chapter visits again in September. As I have said before, I have thoroughly enjoyed traveling throughout our beautiful state this past year seeing the wonderful, positive impact that Beta State members are making everywhere! And as always, it is my pleasure to serve as your Beta State President.

Sister to Sister with love,
Donna B.
