    It is indeed an honor and a pleasure to extend a sisterly, heartfelt welcome to each of you attending the 2017 West Virginia Cluster Conference. Your presence confirms your commitment to leadership and service. Planning and organizing a conference requires tireless hours of work from numerous Sorors and often times family members as well. Special thanks to Soror Daton Leonard Dean, Cluster Coordinator, Soror Deja Smoot, Undergraduate Cluster Coordinator, and the West Virginia host chapters, Beta Beta Omega and Nu. I commend your exemplary planning and warm hospitality. The 2014-2018 program, Launching New Dimensions of Service, continues to provide opportunities to address both local and global communities needs in traditional and innovative ways through our global community impact days. Cluster presentations have been designed to strengthen your ability to effectively contribute to our sisterhood and our extended communities. I encourage you to take full advantage of all that is offered during the day, as well as the joy that comes from connecting with Sorors whom you have not seen since last year. Please take time to enjoy sisterly conversation and sharing of best practices with fellow Sorors to help stretch your thinking and equip you for continued service to all mankind. The 2017 Cluster will provide an opportunity to recognize and thank chapters and individual Sorors for their kindness and sisterly support during this administration. I trust that you will leave this conference reconnected, recommitted and inspired. As you return to your respective cities, dare to be unique and forward thinking Act on your beliefs and continue the Alpha Kappa Alpha tradition and credo, To be supreme in service to all mankind. Sisterly,

    Greetings Sorors, It is indeed a pleasure to represent the members of the Wild and Wonderful West Virginia Cluster of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I am pleased to extend a special greeting to those attending the 2017 WV Cluster Retreat hosted by the Bold and Beautiful members of Beta Beta Omega Chapter in Charleston, WV. For those who have traveled from beyond the Mountain State I hope that you will take time to stroll along the historic campus of West Virginia State University, one of two Historically Black Colleges and Universities located in our state.

    This years theme, Launching New Dimensions: Building for the Future will come to life as we continue to Launch New Dimensions of Service in the Mountain State! Throughout the day, there will be wonderful workshops, opportunities to network within our Cluster, and a rededication to our Sisterhood so dear. The numerous workshop sessions will focus on our programs, membership intake, connections, and protecting our brand. The 2017 West Virginia Cluster Retreat is a catalyst for growth and opportunity for all of our chapters, enabling us to gather and experience our excellent Sisterhood. To the hardworking, dedicated, and committed members of Beta Beta Omega Chapter words alone cannot express my sincere thanks for your diligent and unwavering dedication to this Cluster Retreat. Sisterly,

    Greetings Sorors, It is with great delight that I welcome you to Institute, West Virginia for our 2016 West Virginia Cluster Conference. On behalf of all West Virginia undergraduates, I extend a special thank you to our host chapters Beta Beta Omega and Nu Chapters for their efforts to make todays event a success. It is an honor to be the newly appointed West Virginia Undergraduate Cluster Coordinator. I thank Madam Regional Director Toni S. Kendrick, my Graduate Advisor Patricia Wilson, and my Nu chapter Sorors for their love and support as I continue this journey. I am ecstatic to join everyone today for a time of service and fellowship. As a student, having a new backpack, pencils, and pens is a great first step to a successful year. Sorors our efforts today will ensure that students across our region have the necessary tools to succeed. As we continue on our journey of Launching New Dimensions of Service, let us take this opportunity to expand our mission of providing Service to All Mankind. One of the focuses of our cluster retreat is our One Million Backpack Project. Though one of our focuses for this meeting is our backpack project, let us not forget that this is a time of fellowship and togetherness. So as we collect the backpacks, count supplies, and partake in other efforts to reach our goal, please do not forget to greet the lovely Sorors seated next to you, in front of you, and behind you. Once again, thank you for your fellowship and service. Sisterly,
