Welcome to the Great, Great Lakes Region Website!

Greetings on behalf of the Great Lakes Region’s 4,300+ dynamic, determined, dedicated, and devoted members who proudly represent the great states of Michigan, Ohio, Western New York, Western Pennsylvania, and West Virginia! The Gracious Great Lakes Region is also the home of two living legacies, Dr. Bernice I. Sumlin, 19th International President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® and Dr. Eva L. Evans, 24th International President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Great Lakes Regional Director. Together, with 97 empowered chapters committed to providing programs that benefit and support our local communities, we are poised, prepared, and ready to meet the needs of our communities while we continue to advance the legacy of our founders – “To be of service to all mankind.”

The 2014-2018 program theme is “Launching New Dimensions of Service.” This provides our members with vast opportunities to become engaged and actively involved in all our respective communities. We invite you to continue visiting our website for updates.
