Hawaiʻi Alpha Delta Kappa is a branch of Alpha Delta Kappa, an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism and world understanding. Membership, which is honorary and based on peer recognition, provides a wealth of opportunities for leadership development and networking through workshops, training sessions, conferences and conventions. But, perhaps the greatest opportunity Alpha Delta Kappa provides is the opportunity to make a difference. Around the world, Alpha Delta Kappa members combine their energies and talents to enrich their lives and the lives of others through thousands of heartwarming, community-based altruistic projects.
Alpha Delta Kappa was founded in 1947 by Agnes Shipman Robertson, Marie Neal, Marion Southall and Hattie Poppino, visionary women who saw a need to recognize and support the professional efforts of outstanding women educators. Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Alpha Delta Kappa has more than 1,200 chapters located in towns and cities in every state in the U.S., and around the world in Australia, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Our newly elected International President is Judy Ganzert. Representing Hawaii and other states in our region is International Vice President of the Southwest, Kitty Nutting.

Welcome to the cyberworld, Zeta chapter! Mahalo to Imelda Amano for creating a beautiful website for Zeta chapter. Like our 2 other chapters with their own websites, Zeta uses Weebly, a free website builder.
