Kappa Delta Governance

Banner of chapter flags

Each biennium,

Kappa Delta amends its bylaws and elects a new National Council. This is an important time for all Kappa Deltas, which is why delegates from our collegiate and alumnae chapters attend National Convention to vote on these proposed changes and leaders.

2023 National Convention is coming up, so learn more about our elections and bylaws process below!

National Elections

Kappa Delta is what it is today because of the exceptional women who have led our great organization for the last 125 years. Their selfless dedication, vision, wisdom and courage have allowed our sorority to flourish. At the 2023 National Convention, delegates will elect the National Council officers who will lead us into the next biennium.

Kappa Delta’s Nominating Committee is preparing to select the slate for the 2023-2025 National Council election. The committee will also recommend the women to be appointed to the 2023 – 2025 Nominating Committee. We encourage qualified members to apply.

Applications open Nov. 1  for both the National Council and Nominating Committee and are due Feb. 1, 2023. Please direct any questions about the nomination process to Erin Heilmeier, opens in a new windownominatingcommittee@kappadelta.orgcreate new email
