August 2019
Hello everyone!
I hope you are all well and have found some time to relax and refresh this summer.
It's amazing how quickly the summer has slipped by, and now it's time to start thinking about our 2019-20 Delta Zeta year! Our Executive Board met today to do some planning, and we are looking forward to getting together with you in the Fall.

With many, many changes in standing rules at International, we are making changes in our chapter rules as well. One of these changes promises to simplify being an active member for many of our sisters. International has voted to allow us to have virtual meetings and to vote by email, when needed. Many of our sisters have family obligations, live and work in our villages south of Hatteras Inlet, or have other circumstances that prevent them from attending meetings. For those members, we will begin offering a virtual platform by which they can join our meetings live and be able to participate with us. Before our first meeting on September 25th, we will send out a link to our virtual meeting platform and step-by-step instructions with illustrations so you can practice joining the meeting before it actually begins. At that meeting we will also explain how voting on chapter business will work for those attending virtually.

Please save the date, Thursday, September 25, 5:00 at Manteo Elementary School for our first meeting this fall. We will send out a calendar with all meetings and events soon.

Also ~ remember to pay your dues if you haven't. Email Nancy Griffin
