In the past two years alone, Alpha Delta Kappa members have given nearly 12 million dollars in monetary and other gifts, nearly 2 million dollars in scholarships and have provided more than 2 million hours of volunteer service to their communities.  Opportunities for professional and personal networking abound in Alpha Delta Kappa.  From state/provincial/national conventions and regional conferences every even-numbered year to International conventions every odd-numbered year, talented women educators gather to share ideas, fellowship, recognition and support.  Alpha Delta Kappa conferences and conventions feature informative and inspirational seminars by some of the most effective and renowned speakers today.

More than 29,000 women educators around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa — opportunities for recognition of their commitment to educational excellence, for personal and professional growth and for collectively channeling their energies toward the good of their schools, communities, the teaching profession and the world.

Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Alpha Delta Kappa has more than 1,200 chapters located in towns and cities in every state in the U.S., and around the world in Australia, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Editorial Corrections to Proposed International Bylaws Amendments

Posted On Friday, April 9, 2021

Appreciation goes to our Hawai'i sisters who found two typos in the International Convention Guidebook, 2nd edition. Editorial changes for two proposed amendments are necessary but do not change the intent of the proposed amendments. The following corrections will be made to the 3rd edition of the Guidebook, which will be posted April 15. 


Please note the following corrections in your current copy:

    •  #2 Conforming amendment (page 49) should be Article VI rather than  IV

    •  #17 amendment (page 59) should reference page A19— 18 rather than 16 in the current International Bylaws.
