“T” is for training which is available to members on each level of society membership. Mentoring on the chapter level has always been promoted by the society. In addition, the new MAPP Program – Achieving Chapter Excellence, has been designed to help educate members on responsibilities and participation in Delta Kappa Gamma.
On the state level, The Leadership Workshop for Chapter Officers is held every other June at the beginning of the officers’ biennium. District meetings are held around the state in the fall and the Epsilon State Convention is held every March. Both of these afford members an opportunity to attend informative business sessions, participate in workshops, and hear speakers on various topics.
Regional conferences are held during the summer in odd number years. The Leadership Development Conference, presented by the International Leadership Development Committee, is held prior to each regional conference for incoming state organization presidents and executive secretaries. The committee provides a three-day intensive training session for these leaders. Pre-conference training is also provided in a shorter format for editors, web masters, program and membership chairs and treasurers.
