A Message From Our President
Founders Day is a time to honor the women that started our beloved fraternity and reconnect with other alumnae.  This year we have the added pleasure of welcoming the newly-initiated women of the Theta Kappa chapter from the University of Louisville.  We hope as many as possible will attend this fun and meaningful event.  Please send in your reservations today, so we will have an accurate count.  I look forward to seeing you there!

We are excited to add a new program to our chapter, Young Theta Alumnae.  This will be a division of our chapter who will still participate in all regular activities, but they will also have other events planned specifically for their needs and schedules.  They will start out this year with one event and one project.  The event will be a family picnic to be held sometime in the spring (watch for details!) and for their project, they will be compiling a Theta Babysitting Directory you will be able to access if you are a member of the Louisville chapter of Theta Alumnae.  Chairing this new division will be Kelsey Starks.   If you have an interest in Young Alumnae activities, please contact Kelsey at kelseykstarks@gmail.com or call her at 594-0456.  This is the chance to get in on the ground floor of a whole new interest group within Theta.  We’re looking for great things from our Thetas under 45 years of age!

-Jane Haase, President

Dues are Due
As the new calendar year begins, so does our new fiscal year for Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity and our local chapter. Many of you are accustomed to paying your annual dues at Founders Day, but if you will not be able to be there, you may send your check made payable to Kappa Alpha Theta, to Corinne Williams, Treasurer, 6101 Hensley Road, Prospect, KY 40059.

Our dues structure levels will remain the same again this year:

Pansy: $35
Black/Gold: $50
High Flying Kite: $100

We do have something new this year… You may now pay your dues through the Kappa Alpha Theta National website.  You can access it through our Louisville Chapter website or through the national site. After you log in, go to Alumnae, then to Alumnae Dues.  It is easy to navigate!

Our per capita dues to the Fraternity will be $30 per alumna for this fiscal year.  Many of our members are Kappa Alpha Theta Life Loyal members, which means that they have enrolled in the Fraternity’s Life Loyal program to further support Kappa Alpha Theta financially.  Our local chapter does not pay per capita dues to the Fraternity for those enrolled in this program. To become a Life Loyal Theta, please click here for more information.

As always, your dues to our local chapter will support our endeavors to keep Theta alive for our Louisville alums, and allow us to make donations to CASA, Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, and our Kentucky collegiate chapters.

Let’s make 2015 a banner year for dues paying members!
