"Delta Kappa Gamma 101 - PowerPoint"
Message from the International President to the Reorientation Presenter(s) Your international Membership Committee is so pleased to have you use this reorientation presentation with your members. This presentation covers a number of topics about the Society including structure, the Founders, the history and insignia of the organization, and the projects, programs and activities encouraged by the Society. The presentation is designed to be used in one of two ways: 1. each slide or group of slides can be used as a short segment for an on-going reorientation (see next slide for names of groups that can be used), or 2. in its entirety as a longer, complete program for a chapter meeting. The first slide of the presentation is slide 4. This slide and slides 2-3 are for you, the presenter, so please become familiar with the notes that accompany each slide, and understand the method of presentation as explained to you on the next slide. Please use the slides as written, without changes. It is our belief that this presentation will be most helpful for all members. Please give us feedback on the outcome of your reorientation using the new process.
