A Message from Donna Butler
2017-2019 Beta State President

Dear Alabama State members,

I was so delighted to see so many of you at the Executive Board Meeting (commonly known as Fall Board) on Saturday, August 18 at Dalraida Church of Christ in Montgomery. With over 140 registered, what a wonderful day we had, full of the DKG spiritual fellowship that makes our Society so special! Following along with the Amendment passed at the International Convention in Austin in July, we are now called The Alabama State Organization of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International.

Congratulations to Joan Jones, of Alpha Chapter in Montgomery who was recognized as our Alabama State Achievement Award recipient on Saturday at Fall Board! Joan works tirelessly, usually behind the scenes for Alabama State DKG, and is certainly deserving of this honor. Congratulations also to the 9 chapters who were awarded the Order of the Rose distinction as well. These chapters will be formally recognized at the Alabama State Convention February 22-24, 2019 at the Embassy Suites in Huntsville, Alabama.

Speaking of the Alabama State Convention, are you making your plans to attend? The registration form is already on the website, and you can go ahead and reserve your hotel room as well! Liz Huntley, well-known child advocate and litigation lawyer from Birmingham, AL. will be our banquet speaker for Saturday night on February 23rd. Many of you heard her speak about overcoming her difficult childhood at the SERC in Myrtle Beach, S. C. in July, 2017. Sylvie Bastien-Doss will be our International guest. She is from Quebec, Canada, and is quite an energetic and entertaining speaker. Sylvie will be our luncheon speaker on Saturday, February 23, and will also present a workshop that day. Her topic is “What Kind of Leader are You: a  Firecracker or a Torpedo?” Several members heard her speak at the International Convention in Austin in July, and thoroughly enjoyed her workshop.

But before the Alabama State Convention, there’s another event on the horizon! Have you made your plans yet for WOW (Weekend of Wonder)? Alabama State First Vice President, Teresa Noell, has planned an exciting time for us on October 19-21 in Anniston, AL. Take a look at the registration form, already on the website, for all the details. Deadline to register is October 1st, and only the first 40 applicants will be accepted.

I’m catching up with Alabama State DKG paperwork the rest of this month in anticipation of starting back with chapter visits in September. It is a pleasure to travel our beautiful state, seeing the positive impact that members are making everywhere! And as always, it is my pleasure to serve as your Alabama State President.

Sister to Sister with love,
Donna B.
