Nu Chapter members recently enjoyed the 2024 NC DKG Convention events in Durham, NC. President Leslie Black, First Vice President Regina Propst, Second Vice President Allison Patton, and members Lee Ann Perry, Thalia Holman, Amanda Swengros, Carol Bostian, and Amanda Moose represented Nu Chapter at the three-day event. 

Convention events included the spring NC DKG Executive Board meeting, a fun reception with food, Bingo, and presentations focused on how to recruit new members, the general business meeting for all members, breakout sessions, the annual banquet honoring chapter presidents, an impactful Ceremony of Remembrance, and the Birthday Brunch celebrating our Founders and honoring award recipients. Special guests for the convention were DKG Society representative Peggy Jonas, DKG Finance Director, and Catherine Truitt, NC Superintendent of Public Instruction, keynote speaker at the Saturday evening banquet. 

Region III, convention hosts, conducted a silent auction with benefits going to the Pauline Longest Leadership Development Fund, part of the NC DKG Educational Foundation. Convention attendees also had the opportunity to volunteer at the Durham Rescue Mission, the 2024 convention project. Almost $3,000 was collected for DRM in addition to requested materials. 

Nu Chapter earned the NC DKG Order of the Rose chapter award and the Communications Excellence Award for our newsletter, website, brochure, and other communication tools. (look for the new badges on the website and newsletters.) Amanda Moose and Regina Propst both presented well-attended breakout sessions. Moose was also recognized as a 20-year member milestone. 

The 2025 NC DKG convention will be in Charlotte, NC, on April 25-27, 2025, at the Hilton Charlotte University Place. This close-to-home location is a great opportunity to attend a state convention and learn more about the Society. Mark your calendar now and plan to join the fun!
