It's time to save dates to your caledar!Dear Alpha Sisters,
We are sure this is the weirdest summer ever, and that those of you who are still teaching are really worried about what is going to happen in September. Hang in there!
This is coming to you through MailChimp because DKG has changed its communication policy. Email from the society may not show the emails of all the recipients. This is an effort to cut down on the phishing and fraud that has been happening.
Meanwhile, the Alpha Chapter Executive Committee has met and planned for the coming year. Whatever else happens, we have a plan that is flexible. We anticipate that at least the first two meetings will need to be virtual and you will find out more as we approach the dates. You have plenty of time to read the book for the first meeting - Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. Bennett discusses her book in a video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/oRpIGuluEiQAlpha Chapter Meetings

The DKGNJ Executive Committee is also meeting and trying to plan for the coming year. You will soon be getting an email from DKGNJ asking you to vote on by-laws changes to make it possible to have state meetings virtually - chapters already have that capacity. Please, when you get it, VOTE! We will need over 50% of the state DKGNJ membership to vote in favor of the amendments in order to make this happen. Every vote counts.
Meanwhile, stay healthy!
