AΔK Membership Campaign January 1 - April 30
Alpha Delta Kappa
“Strengthen your chapter with new members.”
Membership definitely begins with ME! Recruiting and retaining members begins with you and your Member Enthusiasm. Your enthusiasm for Alpha Delta Kappa will attract others who will want to join you in our organization and remain in our organization. Your enthusiasm and commitment can truly make a difference!
Prospective members may include classroom teachers, principals, administrators or anyone engaged in a specialized field of education (e.g. college and technical school faculty). The criteria for membership in Alpha Delta Kappa are that the prospective member be an outstanding educator, have a degree in education or be certified, be actively engaged in education and under contract in the field of education. Retired educators who are still involved in education are also eligible. Think of the outstanding women educators you know who meet our membership criteria and would benefit from all Alpha Delta Kappa has to offer!
Celebrate and honor your new members today by recognizing her professional accomplishments as well as bringing attention to Alpha Delta Kappa.

What Your Chapter Could Win!
The December KAPPAN will recognize each chapter that initiates/reinstates four or more new members. In addition, all chapters that initiate/reinstate one or more members will be entered into a state/provincial/national (S/P/N) drawing for a $100 stipend toward the upcoming International convention or regional conference registration.
1-3 new members initiated/reinstated = one entry in the drawing
4-6 new members initiated/reinstated = two entries in the drawing
7+ new members initiated/reinstated = three entries in the drawing
The drawings will be held at International Headquarters. The winning chapters will be notified. The International Vice President for Membership, Regional Membership Consultants, International Vice Presidents of the Regions and S/P/N presidents will be notified of the winning entries.
Please contact the International Vice President of your Region, regional membership consultant or S/P/N membership consultant with any questions.
