W E L C O M E
It is my honor and privilege to welcome you to the official website of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter. Chartered in 1971, Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter has been a positive force in Bergen County, New Jersey. We have dedicated ourselves to providing service not only to the residents of Bergen County but to all of mankind. Through our fundraising efforts, we are able to award yearly scholarships to deserving graduating seniors. Thank you for your continued support.
Under the direction of Dr. Glenda Glover, the program thrust for the 2018-2022 administration is Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service. We will direct our efforts towards the following five targets which are designed to advance the mission of Alpha Kappa Alpha with excellence and underscore our commitment to sustainable service.
Target 1: HBCU for Life: A Call to Action
Alpha Kappa Alpha will continue its focus on education with an emphasis on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
Target 2: Women’s Healthcare and Wellness
Alpha Kappa Alpha will continue to raise community awareness of critical health issues impacting African-American women. The primary focuses will be breast cancer awareness and prevention, heart health, nutrition and wellness, and care for the caregivers.
Target 3: Building Your Economic Legacy
Alpha Kappa Alpha will emphasize financial planning, asset accumulation, and wealth-building including savings and investments, managing debt, and improving credit.
Target 4: The Arts!
Alpha Kappa Alpha will expose students to arts enrichment and culture by focusing on visual and performing arts and by showcasing talent through the exploration of writers, entertainers, and various other artists.
Target 5: Global Impact
Alpha Kappa Alpha will engage in programming designed to enhance the international footprint of the sorority.
The Signature Program is #CAP which is the abbreviation for College Admissions Process. It is designed to assist students in their efforts to enter college by providing a hands-on approach that includes all the steps from researching various colleges to actually completing the application process.
During the next four years our efforts will also focus on seven Community Impact Days, the plights of the homeless, collecting gently worn shoes and eyeglasses for the less fortunate, as well as making pillowcase dresses and shirts for little girls and boys in Africa.
My chapter members and I are excited and eager to begin implementing programs and activities under the Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service administration. We invite you to explore our website (www.akaieo.org) and learn more about our organization and chapter, and we hope you will join in our efforts as we continue to be of service to all of mankind.
Yours in Service,
