International President’s Message

Welcome to the 33rd International Convention - we have over 1500 sisters joining us either virtually or on-site. Kansas City is known as the Heart of America and is home to our Alpha Delta Kappa Headquarters. It refers to itself as the Heartland and has used hearts as the symbol of love for many years. In fact, they have a Parade of Hearts that celebrates Kansas City’s diversity and supports nonprofits by placing local artists’ beautifully designed hearts throughout the city. Check them out at theparadeofhearts.com. How fitting it is that we gather together, both virtually and on-site, to celebrate our almost 76 years of history and Share our Love of Alpha Delta Kappa in the Heartland, Kansas City.

Our 2023 International Convention started in early May when delegates adopted the Rules Governing an International Convention, allowing for greater participation by sisters who are unable to travel to Kansas City. Those who registered by May 1, for either virtual attendance or on-site, had the opportunity to vote online for our International altruistic projects, regional and International officers, and proposed bylaws amendments and resolutions, thus saving time and money. We are fortunate to have more than 275 sisters who are joining us virtually and together we will share many enriching experiences; we will Share the Love of Alpha Delta Kappa. We will learn from more than 140 Educational Symposium presenters, either on-site or via their recorded sessions, which will be excellent chapter program opportunities. I am delighted that we will be able to benefit from every Symposium learning session, not just those we are able to attend on-site. The learning sessions are of amazing quality and I know I would like to attend them all. This year with every session being recorded, you and I will be able to view each session at our leisure. All registered attendees will have access to all Symposium sessions.

I am eternally grateful to the hundreds (literally) of sisters that have given their time and talent to make this convention a very special one. Our Executive Director, Christi Smith, and the Headquarters staff have been remarkable. Thank you all for helping to make this convention one that I know will be memorable for years to come.

We are coming together to celebrate more than 75 years of sisterhood. Agnes, Hattie, Marie and Marion would be proud; our growth in supporting educational excellence, our altruistic works across the organization and our dedication to World Understanding have all served to make our communities and our world better. I am PROUD to be an Alpha Delta Kappa member, and I’m delighted to be with you as we Share the Love. Enjoy!

2. Any registered delegate may participate in the debate.

3. Only delegates may make or second a motion.

4. Two blocks of time will be open to offering both a first comment and a rebuttal comment. Each delegate is limited to one comment per issue during each debate block.

These electronic meetings shall be subject to all rules adopted by the Board, or by the organization, to govern them, which may include any reasonable limitations on, and requirements for, Board members’ participation. Any such rules adopted by the Board shall supersede any conflicting rules in the parliamentary authority, but may not otherwise conflict with or alter any rule or decision of the organization. An anonymous vote conducted through the designated electronic meeting service shall be deemed a ballot vote, fulfilling any requirement in the bylaws or rules that a vote be conducted by ballot.

In hist’ry’s page, let ev’ry stage Advance Australia fair.

In joyful strains then let us sing, “Advance Australia Fair.”

O CANADA

O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all of us command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free!

Chorus:

Mexicanos al grito de guerra, El acero aprestad y el bridón. Y retiemble en su centro la tierra, Al sonoro rugir del cañón. Y retiemble en su centro la tierra, Al sonoro rugir del cañón.

Verse:

Ciña oh patria, tus sienes de oliva, De la paz el arcángel divino, Que en el cielo tu eterno destino Por el dedo de Dios se escribió. Mas si osare un extraño enemigo, Profanar con su planta tu suelo, Piensa, oh patria, querida que el cielo Un soldado en cada hijo te dio; Un soldado en cada hijo te dio.

Repeat Chorus:

THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the

perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh say, does that star spangled banner yet wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

26

Lamp of Alpha Delta Kappa

To Alpha Delta Kappa, We pledge our loyalty; To sisters who are always true, We’ll ever faithful be;

The sacred lamp of learning upon our altar stands; Its radiant glow will e’er bestow a light to all the lands.

Trang

Trang was an Alpha Delta Kappa ITE scholar from 2019 - 2021; she graduated from the University of Washington with a major in Education Policy, Organizations and Leadership. Before that, she worked as a Teachers' Coach in an education NGO, Teach For Vietnam, where she led their inaugural cohort of leadership fellows in teaching at public schools as well as community engagement projects. Her extensive exposure to this field across different sectors (NGO, public and private sectors) at both grass root and systemic levels is fueled by her passion to advocate for the educational quality of underrepresented communities in rural areas. After coming back to Vietnam in the fall of 2022, Trang continued to work in education as an Education Marketing Project Manager for a technology company. Her focus is to assess market opportunities for educational programs, especially those in coding and creativity, as well as to localize their marketing assets to ensure relevancy for Vietnam. She is also in charge of growing a local educator community in Vietnam that can leverage the power of technology to empower students’ learning in a digital era.

International Convention Altruistic Project

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City (RMHC-KC) is to reduce the burden of childhood illness on sick children and their families. We accomplish this by:

✓ Providing comfortable lodging convenient to local health care facilities

✓ Creating a caring and uplifting environment

✓ Undertaking resource and fund development activities that support our facilities, programs, and services

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City alleviates the worry and expense of finding a close, comfortable and affordable place for a family to stay while their child receives the medical care they need. That can make a world of difference to a child bravely battling an illness or recovering from a serious injury. It costs RMHC-KC $100 a night to house a family.

All families at RMHC-KC are caring for a critically ill child; the families we serve also have diverse backgrounds, experiences and cultures.
