The Kansas City Alumnae Chapter has been on a break over the summer, but now that summer is rapidly coming to a close, we are busy getting ready for our best year ever!
Our fall newsletter should be arriving in your mailboxes soon. If you aren't on our mailing list, or if you aren't sure if you are, send us an email and we'll be sure to add you. We mail four beautiful, full-color newsletters printed by Illustratus each year.
Over the summer we've received more emails from potential new members than ever before! We are very excited to start this new year. Here are a few basic facts about our chapter:

  • Chapter dues are $35/year. Of this amount, $25 is sent to AOII International. The other $10 remains in the local chapter and is used for chapter operating expenses such as our directory, supplies, and postage.
  • Recent graduates are entitled to their first year FREE! Let us know if you are a recent graduate and would like to join our chapter.
  • The Kansas City chapter has a "day group" and an "evening group." Many ladies meet for lunch and social time once a month on a Monday, alternating between a couple of locations. The evening group often has activities on weekday evenings. You are welcome to pick and choose your events or go to all of them!
  • We try to hold a Founder's Day celebration on the first Saturday of December every year.

The day group will have its first luncheon on Monday, September 8, from noon-2 p.m. It will be held at The Forum, located at 3501 W. 95th Street in Overland Park. The luncheon cost is $9.50. For more details, please contact Cherie Smith, our day meeting coordinator, at 913-642-6073.
The evening group will kick off the new year with a Girls' Night Out dinner on Friday, September 19, at the Old Chicago restaurant located at I-35 and 119th Street in Olathe. Meet us at the restaurant at 7 p.m. Please send an email RSVP to Jenny at applebugg {at} gmail {dot} com.
Please email us with any questions and we look forward to meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones this year!
