Dear Alpha Sisters,
We are getting closer to the deadline to rsvp for our chapter meeting on February 29, 2020. If you haven’t done so yet, please get on it soon! https://forms.gle/HusZ7btRLG64pU6d9 All of the information is on our website at https://www.dkgnj-alpha.org/alpha-meeting--02-29-2020.html .
We are getting closer to having a slate of officers for the next biennium.
We are also approaching the DKGNJ Convention. The deadline for registration is March 6. I know that the newsletter hasn’t come out yet – it should be out soon – but, meanwhile, everything is online on the state website at https://www.dkgnj.org/nj-state-convention.html . So far there are 3 Alpha members registered. I hope we will have many more.
Sometime between March 18 and March 24 we must get a group together someplace with tables to assemble the convention registration packets. We will need to have at least 10 people there. Please help us figure out when would be the best date, place and time to get this done.
We have seven potential inductees. Fortunately, two of them will be able to be inducted at convention, so we will be welcoming Jameelah Wright and Jody Inglis then. Elizabeth Giblin, Brittany Lissemore, Colleen McElroy, Jayne Moran, and Lisa Petruzzi will be inducted at our May meeting. They have all been invited to our February meeting and we can look forward to meeting many of them at that time.
The end of February will be busy. The CTAUN Conference is on Friday, February 28. Several of Alpha’s members are planning to be there: Debbie Hoeflinger, Shannon Neville-Greenwood, Megan Connolly, Theresa Messineo, and I will meet at the UN. If you would like to join us, the registration closes on February 14, so go to https://teachun.org/conference/2020-un/ and register soon. It should be outstanding!
There is lots of news from DKG, especially about the coming convention in Philadelphia in July. Jane Murphy, a member of Sigma Chapter has been selected to present a workshop. There is an early-bird registration and information about how inductees may like to pay dues in order to be able to attend the convention. The information is in the President’s Page : https://www.dkgnj.org/uploads/2/2/3/1/22313516/2020_prespage_19-3_febmar.pdf .

Of course there is more, but these are highlights!
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
