A MESSAGE FROM THE LEADERSHIP OF KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA
June 23, 2016
Dear Kappa Sisters:
Today marks a historic moment for our organization. Kappa
Kappa Gamma’s voting delegates, in representation of its membership, voted in
favor of the proposed revisions to the Fraternity Bylaws and Standing Rules at
the 71st Biennial Convention in San Diego.
By adopting these revisions, Kappa Kappa Gamma will be well-positioned
to achieve the goals outlined by the Long-Range Planning Task Force:
- To more effectively meet the needs of alumnae
and undergraduate members
- To better utilize and develop the skill sets of our
- To provide volunteers with roles that are more
rewarding, more manageable and less time-consuming
- To allow Fraternity Council to create a clear
vision for our organization
- And most importantly, to ensure our relevance
and perpetuate Kappa’s ideals for future generations of women.
These exciting and aspirational goals are only achievable
through change. With change comes both hope and uncertainty. We will be guided,
not by fear, but by the powerful strength and example provided to us by our Founders
who confidently charted a new path in an uncertain time.
We will recommend that the new Fraternity Council immediately
appoint a transition team at the close of Convention to help facilitate the
work ahead. Training and coaching for newly-elected and appointed volunteers will
begin in July. Bridging these aspirations into reality will require the
collaborative efforts of our volunteers, the support of our staff, and the
patience of our membership. We are inspired by the possibilities our new
organizational structure represents.
We are deeply grateful to our Long-Range Planning Task Force
for its outstanding work. We would also like to thank our membership for your participation
during the past two years as we have collectively sought to advance our
organization. Your input throughout this process has been greatly appreciated.
If you have questions about the revisions to the Fraternity
documents or new organizational structure, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.womenwhokappa.org. We look forward to implementing these exciting
changes that will ensure Kappa Kappa Gamma’s position as a leader among women’s
