Chapter Programs

The First Vice-President of Alpha Chapter facilitates the planning and implementation of program presentation. Several factors are involved with the successful program process in Alpha Chapter.

Tradition and observation of research about what makes successful and meaningful programs are used as the program agenda is developed for each biennium.
      • Chapter members are surveyed to discover interests and needs.
      • A variety of methods and techniques for presenting program information are used.
      • Adult learning research is used in planning programs.
      • Use of individual member expertise, knowledge and skills are valued and used.
      • A team approach is used to ensure a broad and useful base of interesting information in presentations.

In addition to traditional and proven methods for program planning and development, the planners make extensive use of current international and state themes as highlighted in recent publications, training and communication.

The foundation for chapter programs is exemplified in our international mission statement:
Delta Kappa Gamma promotes professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education.
