BLAST 6 – State Organization Presidents
HAPPY NEW YEAR and Greetings from DKG Society Headquarters in Austin! This is the first of
two blasts I will send out to you this week! Please read carefully.
Here are some reminders that you need to note and that you need to pass on to ALL MEMBERS in
your state organization. BE SURE that your state organization COMMITTEE CHAIRS and
MEMBERS pay close attention to those items that directly link to their work!
1. EEC training at the international conferences has been changed! EEC training will be held at
every international conference this summer. Training will occur DURING the conference itself,
not as a part of the pre‐conference leadership training. ALL New 2019‐2021 State Organization
EEC chairs for each SO may attend whichever conference they choose. They will attend two (2)
workshops set up on one of the conference days (see the conference schedule/program for
this time, date, location). A boxed lunch will be provided between the two sessions for those
in attendance. Specific information will be sent to those attending these sessions once we
know who your 2019‐2021 EEC Chair will be!
Please COMMUNICATE this change to ALL persons who need to have it BEFORE they register for
conferences! It is your responsibility as SO president to “spread the word.” Training for other SO
leaders will remain as originally planned for conferences in IOWA and ICELAND. Only Latin
American and Japan presidents, treasurers, and membership chairs will be trained in
CALIFORNIA per info shared with you in earlier articles and email blasts.
2. Conference registration opens today for North American conferences (Iceland’s registration
will open tomorrow), TUESDAY, JANUARY 15th! Once you have completed the registration
form for the conference(s) you plan to attend, an email receipt will be forwarded to you.
Members attending leadership training prior to a conference (IOWA, ICELAND, CALIFORNIALatin
American/Japan SO officers only!) are not required to attend that conference. Therefore,
they will not register for the conference itself unless they plan to remain at that site and attend
3. The 2018 Constitution and ISR will be posted online by the end of the business day today,
TUESDAY, JANUARY 15th. Hard copies will be available for order through the DKG Store by the
end of the month. As a member of the Executive Board, you will receive a copy of this
document in the mail (ISR 12.05 When there is a new edition of the Constitution, a
complimentary copy will be mailed (postal) each member of the international Executive Board.
The definitive version of the Constitution shall be the one maintained digitally on the Society
Thank you for attending to the distribution of this information to your state organization membership

Greetings from DKG Society Headquarters in Austin!
A new delivery procedure takes effect this month for our newsletter, DKG NEWS! This gives me the opportunity both to remind you of this update and to ask you to share the information with all of your chapter members. Last biennium the Administrative Board reviewed expenses associated with the production and postal delivery of the DKG NEWS. That review resulted in the decision to use only a digital format and distribution method to deliver this publication to members throughout the Society. It was a fiscally sound move for the Society and echoed what many chapters and state organizations have already embraced, perhaps even yours!
Look for your DKG NEWS in two formats on the Society’s website. The first of these formats is a flip book version that allows you to read the document from the screen of your computer. For those that prefer to read a hard copy, you will find a PDF version to download and print out. Whichever format you use, please do continue to read this newsletter to keep up with news at the international level. Our newly appointed editor, Membership Director Patricia (Trish) Woodley, welcomes your comments, as do I.
Enjoy planning and holding your meetings this fall! It is the season to move forward with projects, events and excursions. Make time for DKG and the meaningful experiences it offers. I look forward to seeing you soon as our next round of international events unfold, the 2019 International Conferences:
2019 International Conference – Arts and Humanities – Ashville, NC – June 27-29
2019 International Conference – Leadership – Des Moines, IA – July 10-12
2019 International Conference – Technology – Costa Mesa, CA – July 17-20
2019 International Conference – Professional Research – Reykjavik, Iceland – July 25-27
2019 International Conference – Global Awareness – Mashantucket, CT – July 30-August 1
Please note our correct mailing address is 416 W. 12th Street, Austin, Texas 78701. We realize that a typographical error in our address was included in the packet recently sent to all treasurers with the Form 18s. Please contact our office with any issues or concerns.
