As presented in the First Plenary Session of the 88th North
Atlantic Regional Conference on April 05, 2019:

Leading With a High Note

I LISTEN. I HEAR YOU. I VALUE YOUR VOICE.

We have begun this journey leading with a high note. Your song is
music to my ears as we harmoniously work to fulfill the purpose of
AKA.

Since the beginning of my term on July 12, 2018, you have each played a part in making this symphony.
• Chapters have embraced the “Exemplifying Excellence through Sustainable Service” programs;
• We have integrated all program targets into every aspect of regional operations; and
• You have worked to resolve conflicts on the chapter and soror-to-soror level.

In my capacity as Regional Director, I have:
• Been present to represent you at every Directorate meeting, whether in person or via conference call;
• Supported the Supreme Basileus with representation at various events on her behalf and at her request;
• Connected with our Divine 9 counterparts at the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington D.C. and

various other events;
• Become a member of the Association of Fraternity Advisors and attended their annual conference;
• Provided written greetings for Chapter events, Cluster Conferences and other events hosted by various

social and civic organizations;
• Conducted Cluster Leadership Conferences, chapter retreats, with record attendance: Cluster I @ 772

sorors, Cluster II @ 362 sorors, Cluster III @ 403 sorors, Cluster IV @ 325 sorors, and Cluster V @184
sorors;
• Hosted the North Atlantic Region’s Leadership Summit with over 700 sorors in attendance, where we
started the new year by strengthening our leadership skills in a supportive learning environment with
each other;
• Hosted a successful Undergraduate Roundup with 743 sorors in attendance;

• Established the Mary Bentley LaMar Caring for
Those Who Care Fund through the Education
Advancement Foundation;

• Appointed two (2) Executive Assistants to the
Regional Director’s leadership team to ensure a
smooth transition and to help me keep our
regional operations running smoothly; and

• Explored innovative options to leverage our
conference planning and efficiencies to build
strong financial stewardship with our regional
financial operations.

Leadership Fellows Program, we will recognize nine
new sorors this week from the North Atlantic Region
that are 2019 Fellows.

OPERATIONS

Fiscal Stewardship
Sorors, when I became your Regional Director, your
mandate for sound fiscal stewardship was loud and
clear.

We established a Regional Finance Team that
operates collaboratively and included our Regional
Tamiouchos, Regional Pecunious Grammateus and
Regional Finance Committee.

By working to develop budgets with input from all
stakeholders affected, I am pleased to report we are
operating out of the intensified pink and are now in
the black! Further, all bills generated during this
administration are current. We issued a check for
$2,000.00 representing donations collected during
the 2018 North Atlantic Regional Conference and the
Corporate Office has preliminary findings from the
audit of our 2014-2018 financial records.

To accomplish this goal, we made a number of money
moves:
• We implemented NAR Kurrency in lieu of souvenir

gifts at all of our regional events and conferences;
• We developed the 2019 Conference Bag Policy to

provide all sorors the opportunity to secure a
regional conference bag, while at the same time
protecting our bottom line; and
• We secured corporate sponsorships of
approximately $105,000 to help defray the costs of
hosting our various events.

Sorors, we accomplished all of the above without
requesting any chapter assessments!

And, as part of our commitment to keep the region out
of the intensified pink, we continue to streamline

conference costs. This includes cutting the cost of the NARC app by 60%, assessing conference locations, and
reducing our conference printing costs by creating signage that can be used across all regional events.

CONFERENCE PLANNING

We are planning now for the upcoming sorority conferences,
including:
• Cluster I Leadership Conference on October 19;
• Cluster II Leadership Conference on October 26;
• Cluster III Leadership Conference on November 9;
• Cluster IV Leadership Conference on October 5;
• Cluster V Leadership Conference on September 28;
• Undergraduate Round Up taking place September 20 and

21;
• Regional Leadership Summit taking place on January 11 in

Cluster V;
• Mid Atlantic and North Atlantic/Cluster I Joint Founders’

Day Celebration on January 20, 2020; and
• Our 69th Boule taking place in Philadelphia from July 15-19, 2020.
Sorors, it truly is an honor to serve as your Regional Director.
Thank you all for you hard work and sisterly support as we
continue Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service.
We are off to a great start in our first year together and I look
forward to working with each of you as we lead the Notable
North Atlantic Region with a High Note.
