Chapter Highlights

Conferences

Northern Carolina Cluster

On November 17, 1990, the Chapter extended an invitation to the Northern Carolina Cluster for the 1991 Cluster.

At the request of Regional Director Maxine Black, the Chapter hosted the Northern Carolina Cluster, Warren County High School, November 1991. Even though this was a relatively new Chapter, it was felt that the sorors could successfully handle the task. Brenda Clarke, a Warrenton, NC Stained Glass Artist, was commissioned to design and create a stained class Ivy Leaf for over 100 attendees. Norma White of Florida facilitated the Cluster training which focused on the "new cluster concept approach" for Regional Conferences.

On October 19, 2012, the Chapter hosted “The Talk” at Robinson Ferry Restaurant in Warrenton. On October 20, 2012, the Chapter hosted the Cluster at Vance Granville Community College Civic Center. There were around 285 sorors in attendance.

Mid-Atlantic Regional

In April 1989, Rosiland C. Gilliam and Jennie A. Johnson Franklin were delegates to the Chapter's first Regional Conference.

Members served on Planning Committees for conferences, hosted by the Northern Carolina Cluster, with one being the 50th Anniversary Celebration for the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Members also served on the Planning Committee for the 2008 Centennial Regional Conference as part of the Mid-Atlantic Region held in Greensboro, North Carolina.

In addition, members served on the Planning Committee for the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference to be held in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
