MAPP Series 5: LOTS with emphasis on L

“L” is for leadership.  Being a good leader is not something that casually occurs.  It takes great thought, insights, commitment, and energy.  As educators, we are most effective when empowered with these qualities.  That is why Delta Kappa Gamma provides LOTS of opportunities to foster the development and growth of its members.  With this in mind, the Bea Davis Leadership Seminar was developed to train potential leaders for service to Epsilon State and Delta Kappa Gamma.  The seminar is held on a weekend in early June of odd-numbered years.  Members who have shown evidence of leadership and have a minimum of three years of membership are eligible to apply by January 15th of that year.  The application and recommendation forms are on the state website.

On the international level, the Golden Gift Leadership/Management Seminar is an intense two week educational opportunity held once every two years, in the even-numbered years at the University of Texas in Austin.  Applicants must have at least three years of Society membership and show leadership potential.  For successful applicants, the only cost is the registration fee.  Other expenses, including round-trip travel, are covered by the Society.  Applications are on the international website.


MAPP was created, presented and distributed statewide by the 2009-2011 District Directors for use by chapters. The information created and developed will offer insight for officers in developing programs that affect membership.
