The NE Alpha Zeta chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa celebrated Alpha Delta Kappa Month at the October meeting.
Alpha Delta Kappa was founded in 1947 by Agnes Shipman Robertson, Marie Neal, Marion Southall and Hattie Poppino. They were visionary women who saw a need to recognize and support the professional efforts of outstanding women educators. More than 38,000 members in more than 1,400 chapters around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa. These opportunities include recognition of their commitment to educational excellence, personal and professional growth, and collectively channeling energies for the good of their schools, communities, the teaching profession and the world.
Headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., Alpha Delta Kappa has chapters in the 50 states of the United States and Puerto Rico, Australia, Canada, Jamaica and Mexico. Chapters are the foundation of the organization.
Membership, which is honorary and based on peer recognition, provides a wealth of opportunities for leadership development and networking through workshops, training sessions, conferences and conventions. But, perhaps the greatest opportunity Alpha Delta Kappa provides is the opportunity to make a difference. Around the world, Alpha Delta Kappa members combine their energies and talents to enrich their lives and the lives of others through thousands of heartwarming, community-based altruistic projects.
