Kappa Kappa Gamma Houston Alumnae Association

Welcome

Our Houston Alumnae Association has a membership of women ranging from 22 to 90+ years old from more than 120 different chapters throughout the United States and Canada. We promote longevity of Kappa values in all aspects of our lives by encouraging participation in our many different programs, which cater to all interests and annual philanthropic events. Membership in Kappa shouldn't end at graduation! Our vibrant Alumnae Association offers a wealth of opportunities to continue the sisterhood of Kappa Kappa Gamma.




2022-2023 Dues Update

Dear Kappa Sisters,

In the past, the alumnae association has included your dues to Kappa Kappa Gamma Headquarters, as well as your local association dues. This year, in an effort to streamline our dues collection — and because some of our members have inadvertently paid their Headquarters dues separately and, therefore, paid that fee twice — we will only be collecting dues for our alumnae association. In addition, our association dues have not been raised in many years, and as we are all painfully aware of the price increase in everything in our lives, the Houston association is also being impacted by rising costs.

To defer some of our additional costs, we will be offering a hard copy of our directory at an additional fee of $15, but as a reminder, our directory can be accessed online if you choose not to pay for the optional hard copy of the directory.

Join or renew your membership today. Online: Log into www.houstonkappas.org and click on the “Join” tab. From the drop down menu, choose “Pay Member Dues,” and pay by credit card. By mail: Download this form and mail it with a check. As a member, you will get a complete list of activities, meetings, and interest groups in the 2022–2023 membership directory, which includes the online directory.

To pay your Headquarters dues, please log onto www.kappakappagamma.org and click on the link “pay dues,” or mail a check directly to Kappa Kappa Gamma, 6640 Riverside Drive, Suite 200, Dublin, Ohio 43017.

Vickie McCarthy
President 2022-2023
