St. Petersburg AKA Chapter to Host Cluster II Conference Nov. 13-14

ST. PETERSBURG – More than 400 members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. will join together for the South Atlantic Region Cluster II Conference beginning Fri., Nov. 13 and concluding the next day at the beautiful Hilton Carillon Hotel in St. Petersburg.

The purpose of the conference is for members to share in “The Power of The Pearl Connection” by focusing on the sorority’s programmatic thrust, “Launching New Dimensions of Service.” During the conference weekend, members expect to donate hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to Pinellas County Schools Homeless Education Assistance Team (HEAT) program. The effort is part of a community service project to assist homeless students in pre-K to 12th grade.

In addition to sisterly fellowship, enriching workshops and recognition of outstanding service, members will also participate in a special Friday night HBCU-themed reception, “Friday Night Live” as part of this two-day event.

The Cluster, under the dynamic leadership of South Atlantic Regional Director Sharon Brown Harriott and Cluster II Coordinator Donna Douglas, consists of 11 graduate chapters and three undergraduate chapters from areas including Orlando, Lakeland, Tampa, Clearwater, Bradenton and Ft. Myers.

This year’s Cluster II Conference planning is hosted by the members of Zeta Upsilon Omega Chapter along with conference chairman, Manitia Moultrie and co-chairs Sharon Jackson and Yolundra Whitehead.
