Greetings!

 

On behalf of the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, Iota Omega Chapter, we welcome you to our website.

 

I am humbled to serve as the 44th President of this Illustrious Chapter during our Centennial year.  We thank you for your interest in Iota Omega chapter and your continued support is more than appreciated.  We invite you to visit our website periodically for updates regarding our signature programs, fundraising events, and international initiatives.  We especially take great pride in sharing our Centennial celebrations with the Norfolk community as we tell Herstory of our Charter members, the contributions of our chapter in the region, and the “Ingenious” trailblazing sisters in our chapter.

Located in the Marvelous Mid Atlantic Region, Iota Omega was chartered on December 1,1922 in the City of Norfolk, Virginia.  Iota Omega is the ninth graduate chapter formed in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, and the second oldest chapter in the Mid Atlantic Region.

 

For nearly 100 years, our chapter has remained steadfast in inspiring and empowering others for the advancement of the Norfolk community.  We are a diverse group of women who are committed to the mission of our beloved sorority which is to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature, to maintain a progressive interest in college life and to be of service to all mankind.

 

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® was established on January 15th, 1908 on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C.  We are proud members of the oldest Greek letter organization established by African American women.

 

The 2018-2022 program theme as outlined by our International President, Dr. Glenda Glover, is Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service. The International Program includes five program targets that parallel to the core mission of Alpha Kappa Alpha, and all reflect our commitment to sustainable service.  The five program targets are HBCU for Life: A Call to Action, Women’s Healthcare and Wellness, Building Your Economic Legacy, The Arts and Global Impact.

The Signature Program under the current administration is #CAP℠ which is the abbreviation for College Admissions Process. This program is designed to assist students with making the right college match by providing a personalized approach to the college application process.  We assist students with identifying the best school options and completing the college application.

 

 

 

Yours in Service,

 

Anordia T. Weatherly, President
