Omicron Omega Presents Global Leadership Retreat


AKABIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Members of Omicron Omega Chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., recently held a retreat for its members. The retreat featured the Honorable U.W. Clemon, Esq. Retired Federal Judge, who, using his own experiences as an example, spoke forcefully on how to position oneself for federal appointments. Birmingham City Councilman, James Roberson, Jr., informed participants on how to get involved in the leadership of city government; State Representative Juandalynn Givan informed members of how best to know when vacancies have occurred at the state level, and how to apply for such vacancies; and Dr. Earnestine McNealey, the sorority’s international historian, informed members as to how to prepare themselves for appointments on the international level in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
The information provided by the workshop presenters was invaluable. “This is the type of information we need to circulate within our community and to the leaders of tomorrow,” stated Terricetta McCall, Chapter President. More than 75 women filled the Homewood Library auditorium in various shades of pink and green for the informative and inspiring seminar.  
 “Preparing members for leadership positions in local government, civic boards and international appointments is one of the international objectives of the sorority,” said Geraldine Bell, Chair of the Leadership Training Committee.
