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

The deadline of September 1st for applications for New Jersey State Organization Professional Growth Stipends is fast approaching. As of today, August 11, I have not received any applications. Surely there are sisters in our chapters who qualify and would benefit. Stipends may be used for the following: professional growth, personal development, research, travel related to one's field of work, educational or community service projects, or conference attendance related to one's field. AZS Sisters may apply after the first anniversary of their membership. Amounts are up to $1,000.
For details and an application: https://www.dkgnj.org/the-professional-growth-stipend.html.
During these last weeks before a new school year begins, members may have some time to apply before September 1. The next deadline for applying for a Professional Growth Stipend is December 15, 2018.
