Happy Friday, Chapter Presidents!
As we look toward the future of DKGNJ, it's time to start searching for women who would be interested in serving at the state level. While we already have a slate of officers for the next biennium, it takes much more than state officers to keep our organization going. There are two attachments to this email: the first is a volunteer form that needs to be returned by April 1, 2021 and the second is a description of all state chair positions. Members may self-nominate and/or nominate someone else. Please be sure to send both attachments to all your chapter members. It would be great to have every chapter represented on a committee at the state level!
I encourage you and your members to stretch a little. Maybe you can encourage some who might be a little reluctant? We are an organization of volunteers and it takes all of us working together to keep us ever-moving forward!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me.
