2023–2024 Dues Update

Dear Kappa Sisters:

Our plans have begun for the 2023–2024 year, and I hope you are planning to join the alumnae association for all the exciting programs we have lined up for the upcoming year. I also encourage you to check out one or more of our interest groups: Book Club, Kappa Kafe (lunch group), Kappa Noche (dinner group), Night Owls (young Kappas) and Stitchers (proceeds from sales benefit the Kappa Charitable Foundation of Houston). We truly have something for everyone!

Prior to 2022, the Houston Alumnae Association dues included Kappa Kappa Gamma Headquarters dues. Last year, we elected to not collect dues for Headquarters and had members pay that fee separately, directly to HQ. To make it easier this year, if you elect to pay $37 to HQ (an increase of $2 from 2022), you may include that amount along with your Houston dues payment, and we will send it in on your behalf. This is completely optional.

To offset our additional costs, we will continue to offer a hard copy of our directory for an additional fee of $15. 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 in at the top of this page, and fill out the form on the dues page to pay by credit card. By mail: download and fill out the dues form and mail it with a check. As a member, you will get a complete list of activities, meetings, and interest groups in the 2023–2024 membership directory, which includes the online directory.

For those of you who are able, I ask that you please include an additional donation to help defray the increasing costs of maintaining the programs and outreach for our members. Your generosity will be recognized with a fleur-de-lis before your name in the directory. Thank you in advance to everyone who chooses to help in this way!

I am extremely honored to serve as president of the alumnae association for the 2023–2024 year, and I truly hope you choose to join in the fun! I am looking forward to seeing all of you and to meeting new friends along the way. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via my contact information below with any needs, questions, or suggestions.

Kristin Dampf, President, 2023–2024
