President’s Message

Throughout the Richmond community, Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated  has a ninety-year history of service. The chapter’s current membership of nearly two hundred (200) represents women of diverse ages, professions, and talents who are committed to upholding Alpha Kappa Alpha’s purpose through programming, service, sisterhood, and scholarship. They are also women who are committed to their community of faith, who serve on community boards, and who are leaders in many other community organizations.

We are proud of the chapter’s accomplishments over its years of its existence. The published history of Upsilon Omega Chapter (1925 – 2013) reveals a continuous focus on the family, children and youth, the arts, education, health, economics, social justice, and civic engagement that is our legacy. The chapter members are also committed to a life-long membership of learning, discovering and teaching so that the legacy may continue.

As we expand our service based on a new program theme, Launching New Dimensions of Service, we will continue to fulfill our ultimate goal of service through sisterly acts of kindness, innovative teaching, and overall lifestyle improvements. We will remain steadfast in our commitment to improve the lives of those most in need within our community while expanding our own horizons by touching the lives of others.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
