Dear Sorors,

You are a perfect 10!  As the tenth region to be established in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, you represent the completion of our Founders’ purposeful promise and vision fair.  With the might of fourteen active and engaged chapters, you are spreading the Alpha Kappa Alpha story all over the world.  Your global leadership executed through timeless service speaks volumes to the communities of men, women and children who benefit from your education, economic, health and social justice focused efforts.

The Ingenious International Region is a beautiful beacon of grateful generosity, undeniable determination and fastidious fidelity to the ideals of this great sisterhood, founded to serve and supply hope to the downtrodden and less fortunate. We are primed to serve with excellence as a standard, and measurable success.

In July, we will gather for the 23rd International Regional Conference in Montreal, Canada with a theme of, “Energizing, Enhancing and Evolving Our Global Leadership Through Timeless Service”.  During this three day conference in our home region, we will learn new and exciting things about our sisterhood, fellowship together and greet old friends and develop new found relationships.  There are some exciting new events this year that you won’t want to miss, so take your time and review the registration packet and be a part of all the global fun beginning on Monday evening, July 15th through the Grammy Awards Gala on Wednesday, July 17th.

I look forward to seeing you in person as we conduct the business of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated with sisterly smiles, poised professionalism, and audacious altruism.  After we depart from the Fairmount Queen Elizabeth Hotel and return to our corners of the globe, we will leave connected in spirit, purpose and intensity, befitting the perfect 10 region.   

I am, sisterly yours,

Evelyn Sample-Oates
International Regional Director
