October 2009 Newsletter

Girl Scouts
CAKD is interested in reaching Girl Scout troops in Spring 2010. If you are a troop leader, and would be interested in a KD event, please let me know. One of the suggestions is to do a Uniquely Me event (http://www.girlscouts.org/program/program_opportunities/leadership/uniquelyme.asp). Rachel Lipsey represented Kappa Delta at the 5th annual Smores in the City fundraiser on September 17th for Girl Scouts – Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. She had a great time networking with the leadership of the Girl Scout council and meeting new friends who support Girl Scouts.

UALR Recruitment
CAKD appreciates all those who sent in recommendations for UALR PNMs these past couple of months. You helped to get the very best girls to colonize the new Kappa Delta chapter. CAKD also appreciates the following KDs who helped support the UALR Recruitment Meal on September 25th: Amanda Pace, Jessica Holcomb, Leigha Jones, Sharon Davis, Karen Huber, Jennifer Stanley, and Cristina Easterling. Several CAKD members had the opportunity to visit with the KD colonization team as well as several ladies from Zeta Omega and encourage them through the extension process for UALR Kappa Delta. CAKD also had the opportunity to meet our soon to be sisters at UALR for Bid Day 2009. We had a great time meeting 11 of the new members joining Kappa Delta at UALR, and getting to know them. Several chapter advisors have been attending New Member meetings and 1st degree ritual ceremonies to learn more about these girls’ hopes and dreams for the new chapter. They are a great bunch of ladies, and through COB have already recruited 9 more members, and have met the current UALR house
total of 20 (1st on campus to do so!)

UALR Chapter Advisory Board (CAB)
It is not too late to consider joining the Chapter Advisory Board (CAB) for Eta Sigma (UALR). If you are interested in finding out more, or being placed on the UALR chapter advisors e-mail list; please send an e-mail to centralarkansaskd@hotmail.com. Placement in positions on CAB should occur within the next 2 months with training soon after the placement.

CAKD Directory
Be sure and come to the October 22nd Founder’s Day event so you can pick up a copy of the CAKD Directory. Thank you so much to those who paid your dues during the past month and during our spring membership drive. We now have the alumnae chapter’s highest membership number ever with 51 members (As of 10/15/09)! We broke last year’s previous high membership number of 32 by over 59%. Way to go CAKD!

Kudos to our KD Sisters
Thank you to all those who helped with the UALR colonization this past month! Your support makes so much possible for these new Kappa Deltas.
