I bring greetings and a HAPPY NEW YEAR on behalf of our Regional Executive Committee, Parliamentarian, and other Sorors that include three Past National Presidents, Sorors Dr. Doris Browning Austin, Charlotte Maull, and Dr. Evelyn Sears Peevy. During my 2nd year as Eastern Regional Director, I continue to cultivate a style that is characterized by transparency and openness. I appreciate the team work you have provided within this great region of Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. and I want to welcome 2019 with you by my side. The New Year only gets better when we are “TOGETHER.” Again, HAPPY NEW YEAR and I hope the year brings you everlasting happiness, peace, success and prosperity in whatever you do as we go about the business of finalizing plans for our Eastern Regional Conference in Alexandria, Virginia (April 11-14, 2019) with Co-Host, Gamma Chapter of Washington, D.C.

Kindest regards,

Shirley Dean-Johnson
