I am so honored that Beta Delta elected me as the new president for the 2020-2022 biennium. As an 11 year member president was not in my plan, but when it happened I was so pleased to have the opportunity to serve this chapter. What I find most appealing about Beta Delta is the diversity of our membership. We have a nice mix of retired educators as well as members who are still working in different areas of our profession. The opportunity exists to get outside of our local chapter and network with others at the Area, State, and International level which continues to be inspirational. Our members are active, willing participants in not just the chapter serving our community, but our area and state as well. My goal is to continue our local activities and introduce some new things to engage the membership.
The state theme for this biennium is Exploring New Pathways. Little did they think how appropriate that would turn out to be and not necessarily the way things have developed. DKG has been challenged and they have stepped up to meet that challenge by exploring new ways of meeting, connecting with members and continuing to strengthen our Society.
The Beta Delta Board is enthusiastic and supportive. I am excited to begin the exploration along some new pathways for our chapter and to Build a Better Beta Delta. Sandy Bell President 2020-2022
