The consultants will travel from August 2012 through March 2013 working to establish new chapters as well as aid Kappa Delta's current chapters in operations, recruitment and leadership development.
"These 11 members represent all a Kappa Delta should be – a confident leader who cares about others," said Kappa Delta National President Beth Martin Langford. "We look forward to having them travel on behalf of Kappa Delta to support our chapters around the country and empower our collegians to be leaders in the chapter, on campus and in their communities."
Consultants began as field secretaries with one secretary in 1962 and three in 1963. They were later called chapter development consultants and will now be called leadership development consultants. Thanks to funding from the Kappa Delta Foundation, the consultant program grew from seven consultants in 2011-2012 to 11 this coming academic year.
