President Teresa is asking for member input
There will be two important orders of business at the DKG Convention this summer - voting on amendments to the DKG Constitution and electing new International officers. NC DKG President Dr. Teresa Cowan will cast one vote for every five active and reserve NC DKG members for the offices of DKG president, first vice president, second vice president and member-at-large. She may split the vote between candidates.
Since members don’t vote directly, it is important that you voice your choices. President Teresa is asking for member input by submitting your choices on the DKG International Officer Election form. Qualifications for each nominee are listed with each office. Be sure to carefully read this information so that you can make informed choices. It is important to let your voice of influence be heard by completing the four-question survey. The DKG International officer election will take place virtually if the convention is cancelled, so it is crucial that you complete the survey today.
Congratulations to 2nd Vice President Hilda Parlér on her appointment to the Charter School Advisory Committee for a term expiring on June 30, 2021 by the NC General Assembly
Hello NC DKG Members from President Teresa and the NC DKG Executive Committee. This message addresses decisions related to the 2020 NC DKG Convention. There are details outlined here we ask that you share with your members:
1. Members who registered for the convention will receive REFUND information via email within the next few days. They have till June 12th to complete the refund request form and return it. Details are on the form.
2. If members have an active room reservation at the Embassy Suites, they should have already received an email confirming the cancellation of that reservation without any obligation.
3. Information regarding virtual presentations to be shared in lieu of a face-to-face convention will be made available as plans are finalized.
Again, thank you for your support and resilience as we move forward with new plans
