Exploring Available Resources

The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International has the capacity to impact educators—thus, education—worldwide. I encourage members who feel unconnected to this organization to make the effort to learn about it. When I founded the organization, communication was more difficult, but now DKG has a wealth of avenues for sharing information and inspiration. The Society website, for example, is a ready resource for anything a member wants to know about DKG. I challenge every member, even those who have accessed or added information to the website, to set aside 30-45 minutes to explore the website. Open every tab, open links, read the titles of resources, note how the information is organized to facilitate your accessing it later, note the topics and genres of information for members. Knowing what information is available will benefit YOU. Know what you can use in your chapter. Know what is in your DKG “bank” of information.   Invest yourself in the resources that assist you as an active or retired educator, and then use your resources to enrich your membership. Resolve to learn more about this one-of-a-kind organization of women educators. 

   Don’t stop there. Go back to the website often to see what is current or to review what you want to know. It is YOUR website for YOUR use. Be one who is “in the know.” Go to and start looking around. You’ll be “investing” in yourself and your membership impact.
