Nu Omega Omega


Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated’s Nu Omega Omega Chapter held their hybrid 2022 Chapter Retreat on Friday, Aug. 12 to Saturday, Aug. 13, at Staybridge Suites in Tallahassee. More than 40 members attended the retreat.

Poised to frame their approach to service under the theme, “Imagine the Possibilities: A Journey into PEARLfection,” sorority members engaged in an interactive strategic planning session designed to generate dialogue that focused on implementing service programs in Lee, Madison, Greenville, Pinetta and surrounding areas. Additionally, members participated in sisterly relations activities to strengthen the bonds of sisterhood, while inspiring each other on ways to embrace the sorority’s programmatic theme of Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood as they developed strategies for the upcoming year.

Under the leadership of the sorority’s International President and CEO, Danette Anthony Reed, the programs of focus for the next four years will seek to build upon the rich legacy of service to lead on the front lines of education, change and advocacy. This administration has six program initiatives that will strengthen the bonds of the sorority’s mission. They are: Strengthen Our Sisterhood, Empower Our Families, Build Our Economic Wealth, Enhance Our Environment, Advocate for Social Justice and Uplift Our Local Community. Under the Strengthen Our Sisterhood initiative, the chapter is planning events to include leadership development within the chapter and an annual MLK Day of Service, to volunteer and serve the community. The remaining five initiatives are designed to impact the community through activities that include: addressing childhood hunger, implementing a youth leadership development program, educational programs for seniors, financial wellness, community and home gardens, tree planting, voter education, registration and mobilization, candidate forums and community enrichment workshops.

Through the sorority’s historic strategic planning efforts, the chapter has awarded scholarships to local graduating high school students, made donations to assist college students at historically black colleges and universities, sponsored virtual events to address heart health, promoted financial responsibility through webinars on credit and financial planning and facilitated interactive virtual workshops on pathways to home ownership. In addition, the more than 40-year-old chapter has promoted cultural awareness of the Harlem Renaissance and Black Arts Movement with local students and managed to support children in Haiti by sewing dresses and shirts through this pandemic.

As a component of the 2022 Retreat, sorority members kicked-off their efforts to continue the current year of community service by collecting school supplies for Greenville Elementary, Pinetta Elementary, Madison County Central and Lee Elementary schools. The supplies delivered to each school included backpacks, pens, pencils, sanitizer, paper, tablets, calculators, art supplies, and more.

“This planning session sought to develop and offer programs, activities and services that will be of importance to our local community,” said Chapter President, Regina Glee Nash. “We are equally excited about the newly developed mentorship program, Pearls of Distinction, designed to address the needs of fifth through 12th grade girls, with offerings of leadership development, character building, civic engagement, community service, cultural experiences and more.”

The chapter encourages the surrounding community to follow the sorority on its social media page and learn more about the chapter’s program initiatives as they work to provide dynamic services to the community.
