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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
