2009 Annual Business Meeting Minutes

Sixteen (16) Kappa Delta sisters met at Buffalo Grill in West Little Rock on April 16, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. After some fellowship and catching up with each other; the following business items were discussed.

Business Items
1. Officers – There are several openings on the CAKD Board. These positions include secretary, membership, and public relations. Please consider an officer position in our group. Rachel Lipsey is willing to stay on as president for two more terms (2009-2010 and 2010-2011); however she feels that it is best for the group, as well as herself, if someone else takes the overall leadership role in 2011-2012.

2. CAKD Events for the Year – The remaining three scheduled events for the year are as follows:

Recruitment References and Recruitment Goodie Bag Preparation: Wednesday, July 29th
Battered Women’s Shelter Philanthropy: Monday, November 16th (DATE CHANGE)
New Year’s Bunko Night: Tuesday, January 26th

Other events for the year will be lunch bunch and happy hour groups (monthly), as well as events associated with the colonization of UALR. Please check your e-mail and our Facebook group page (Central Arkansas Kappa Delta Alumnae Association) for the latest dates and times of these upcoming events. We will be setting the May Lunch Bunch and Happy Hour groups by the end of April.

3. Convention – Rachel will be representing the Central Arkansas Kappa Delta AA at convention this year, and is excited about the opportunity to attend. She has asked the AA for a reimbursement of $200 for convention expenses.

4. CAKD Philanthropy/Scholarship/Other Activities – One idea that some members have considered is starting a scholarship for the UALR chapter as a way to help recruit quality members to the chapter. If you are interested in joining the scholarship committee, please e-mail CAKD at

5. Area Chapter News
a.Colonization at UALR – We talked about the upcoming events for UALR, and the Alumnae Reception on March 31st. E-mails will be sent when firm dates are established for recruitment and chapter events.

6. CAKD References – We will continue to participate in the reference library with the Greater Little Rock Alumnae Panhellenic. These resumes will begin coming in after the April 26th Panhellenic Tea event, and continue throughout the summer. We will reserve the books for the July 29th meeting, as well as check throughout the summer. If you would like to join our “reference writers” group, please send me names of high schools, churches, or other organizations that you may know young ladies from central Arkansas who may be going through recruitment to

7. Greater Little Rock Panhellenic – The Recruitment Tea will be held on Sunday, April 26th at St. James Methodist Church from 2-4 pm. Please let area ladies know about this event to help them prepare for recruitment. The group will have a wrap up meeting in May, no meetings in the summer, and then start back in September with the regular meetings. Leslie Lee is our Panhellenic representative, but I am sure that she would love to have more KD’s join her. If you would more information, please contact
