Georgia 2018 Delta Days at the Capitol (DDAC)

Greetings Chapter President and Members:

Delta Days at the Capitol (DDAC) is the activation of Delta’s national social action thrust, serving as a vehicle for advocacy and effecting social change and public policy. As social action advocates, it is imperative that we remember the Power of We…collectively making a difference in the communities we serve.  We’re asking you to get fired up and ready to meet us at the Georgia State Capitol for the 2018 Delta Days at the Capitol!

The Regional and State Social Action Teams extend an invitation to join us on February 25 – 26, 2018, for the 2018 Delta Day at the Capitol.  Planning is underway for an exciting day that will include legislative briefings on critical issues facing our communities along with continued discussion about how Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. can continue to build on our Founders legacy by allowing social action to fuel change and improvement for the voiceless in our communities. It will be an action packed day filled with vital information as well as opportunities to fellowship with your sisters. It is our hope that you will answer the “Call to Action” and leave informed, revived with the spirit of the Founders and continue the critical work of social action.

As in the past, we are asking each chapter to commit to registering at least (5) members.

We have expanded the online registration process this year to include payment.  Each individual registrant will be able to make payment via the online link.  Chapters will not be required to submit the Summary Registration Form.

 There will be NO ON-SITE registration.

 Please note the registration fees are non-refundable.  The fees are as follows:

  • $45 for Alumnae
  • $30 Collegiate

Answering the Call of the 22:  If not you, then who?

2018 Alabama Cluster & Statewide Founders Day

Dear Sorors of the “Beautiful” State of Alabama!

As we kick off the fourth cluster in the 2018 Southern Regional Cluster Cycle, we welcome you to the birthplace of Mardi Gras and Gulf Coast City of Mobile, Alabama. This year, we invite each of you to Refuel, Reflect, and Rededicate. We ask that you refuel your spiritual tank and reconnect your server to the Savior; reflect on the values we hold dear with our family, friends and sisters; and rededicate your lives to the principles on which our illustrious sorority were founded, exactly, 105 years ago.

Our vision continues to include all sorors, collegiate and alumnae, each having a vital role in advancing the sisterhood. Roles that will empower chapters to better serve our communities, embrace the talents of collegiate and alumnae members, engage those members to create opportunities that will advance the region and enhance each chapter in a powerful way.

The Regional Leadership Team, along with our host chapters, Mobile Alumnae, Baldwin County Alumnae and Iota Nu Citywide (University Of South Alabama, Springhill College, University Of Mobile) chapters, has worked untiringly to prepare purposeful, enlightening, and informative sessions with entertaining opportunities for sisterly camaraderie and fun.

The weekend celebration will begin with the opportunity for sorors to participate in stimulating workshops and enjoy a fun- and fellowship-filled Welcome Event. Our founding observance of every year has a special meaning in the heart of EVERY Delta. We will all rededicate ourselves to our Sorority during our time gathered at Cluster. On Saturday, we will unite in service for DeltaServesTogether. We are asking each soror to view the service flyer and participate in a service project to aid Mobile and Baldwin Counties. This will provide us all with the privilege of walking in the footsteps of our beloved Founders. After we serve, we will put on our red dresses and be served, while enjoying an evening of entertainment, during the, Red Dress Affair: A Founders Day Dinner Celebration. On Sunday, February 25th, we will commemorate our Christian Principle roots with a soul-stirring Ecumenical Service. You don’t want to miss this sisterhood-filled weekend.

Each registrant must complete the on-line registration form and submit payment via the online PayPal service listed on the site. Once successfully registered, you will receive confirmation and hotel links via email. Please check to make sure your information is correct.
Registration fees are $95 for alumnae and $75 for collegiate sorors. Click here to register for the 2018 Alabama Cluster/Statewide Founders Day.
