Letter from the President

To my fellow sisters and Alumnae of αΚΔΦ:

My name is Kathleen Dumlao Lee and I am so excited to serve as your 2015-2017 National Alumnae Board President! I crossed in Spring 2001 (woot!) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Upsilon Chapter, in the Alpha Aces class. After serving UIUC’s Alumnae Association Board for several years, I had the opportunity to serve nationally. This will be my fourth year on National Alumnae Board and I am so honored to continue to contribute to αΚΔΦ!

Crossing almost a decade and a half ago and have seen our organization exponentially grow in membership and chapters. When I rushed to be a part of this organization, I did not have a concept of how it would affect me for the rest of my life, especially after graduation! To this day, I can say αΚΔΦ has touched every aspect of my life, from my career, my philanthropic commitments, and mostly my closest friends aka my sisters.

As a sister of αΚΔΦ you each have your own story of how this organization has helped you personally, professionally, and in ways we never would have imagined as we stepped foot onto our college campuses. During our 25th Anniversary celebration this past Convention, we celebrated our founders that helped established our organization and honored the legacies and legends that have paved the way for our organization’s successes. In 25 years we grew from a handful of women to thousands on a global scale. We have sisters residing throughout the world, working in so many industries, and those that are even raising their own αΚΔΦ legacies-to-be.

National Alumnae Board (NAB) is here to help provide you resources so that your sisterhood expands beyond those days on campus. We want to make our network of 6,000+ sisters accessible and real for you, as a professional, a mother, and a sister. Our programs such as the Elite Membership program, Regional Events, Mentorship Program (VineUp), and our Philanthropic efforts are all here for YOU as alumnae! Take advantages of these resources as you search for ways to re-connect with old sisters or look to grow as a professional!

NAB is continually looking for better ways to serve our alumnae, so please don’t hesitate to contact me, or any NAB Member, regarding questions, suggestions, or ideas you have! We always look forward to hearing from you.

Finally, as you may have heard through social media, our network his continuing to grow and we have officially partnered with the brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon. National Alumnae Board hopes to see you all at our first joint national convention with the brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon in Phoenix during Memorial Day weekend 2016!

Love & Friendship,
