TABLE OF CONTENTS

Welcome to the 89th North Atlantic Regional
Conference. You are invited to join sorors and
guests for “Harmony in Hartford: Exemplifying
Excellence on One Accord.” With your presence
in Hartford, we will make a glorious sound as we
convene to conduct the business of Alpha Kappa
Alpha.

From March 4-8, 2020 at the Connecticut
Convention Center, you can look forward to
conference sessions designed to clarify procedures, work through challenges and
celebrate successes. Conference presenters are preparing now to provide you with
wonderful workshops, dynamic discussions and other activities. The goal being to
strengthen our effectiveness in sisterly relations, chapter operations and community
service.

Some new activities this year include the Legacy Breakfast. All are welcomed to this
breakfast where familial sorority bonds will be celebrated. Another new activity is a
sistership gathering for our undergraduates. And we will get geared up for AKA
Connection by reflecting on our ties to the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage as
we commemorate this milestone. This commemoration will serve to remind us that we
are in challenging times and getting the citizenry counted with the census, registered
to vote, and actually voting, is critical to our democracy.

Let’s continue to lead with a high note. We can hear it echoed in the words of our
Founders as they charged us to a uphold a legacy of being “Supreme in service to all
mankind.” With your help, we can fulfill the Founders’ legacy by implementing the
vision of Madam Supreme Basileus, Glenda Glover through the Exemplifying Excellence
Through Sustainable Service program. We will afford you that opportunity with our
onsite community service projects that include the Soles4 Souls shoe collection, the
Lions Club eyeglass collection, the Health Fair and the Mammography Screenings.

Please know that your presence is needed at the 89th North Atlantic Regional
Conference. I thank you in advance for joining me and the host sorors of Cluster V as
we all blend our voices for the good of the sisterhood. I am excited to hear that
harmonious sound as we come together on one accord in Hartford!

With the Warmest Regards For Our Sisterhood,

Mary Bentley LaMar
North Atlantic Regional Director

Greetings Sorors of the Notable North Atlantic Region,

On behalf of the Sorors of Cluster V, it is an honor and delight to serve as your Vice Chairmen for

of "Harmony in Hartford: Exemplifying Excellence on One Accord” will be on full display as we
welcome you to Hartford, Connecticut, March 4th – 8th, 2020.

Hartford is home to the oldest public art museum, the oldest publicly funded park, the oldest
continuously published newspaper and the location of the first time a President of the United States
rode in an automobile. The rich history of firsts, the vibrant present and the brilliant future of
Hartford mirrors our beloved sorority and provides the perfect backdrop for our conference.

We appreciate the vision and leadership of our Regional Director, Soror Mary Bentley LaMar, and
Chairman, Soror Chenita Daughtry, as we plan an extraordinary conference aimed at giving you
opportunities to grow in leadership and continue the timeless service of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority,

commitment to provide Service to all Mankind. The conference will include exciting events including
a Community Service Project designed to provide important health screenings along with our Alpha
Kappa Alpha Mobile Mammography and Breast Cancer Awareness Coach; and the Public meeting
which will honor individuals dedicated to community service, civic engagement and leadership. Pack
your hats, heels or handbags for the Sisterhood Brunch and get ready to celebrate at “Three Heart
Harmony,” our DGS luncheon. The Step and Stroll and The Voice competitions are sure to hit a high
note at our conference.

Our workshops, and institutes will inform us, our rededication ceremony and ecumenical service

will ground us, and your presence will ensure we are in tune with each other and enjoying the
harmony of sisterly love. The 89th North Atlantic Regional Conference promises to have you singing

its melody for years to come.
