President's Message

The members of Upsilon Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, welcome you to our website.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated is an international service organization that was founded on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C. in 1908.  Since its inception, the sorority has dedicated itself to sisterhood, scholarship, and service.  Upsilon Xi Omega Chapter was founded on those same principles in 1997 and continues to dedicate itself to making a difference throughout our communities: locally, regionally and internationally.

Upsilon Xi Omega Chapter was chartered in May, 1997.  Thirty-one distinguished women of high moral character chartered Upsilon Xi Omega.  Since 1997, the membership continues to grow.  The members of Upsilon Xi Omega are the heartbeat of the chapter and are committed to providing programs that benefit our local communities.

Since it’s chartering, Upsilon Xi Omega has focused on serving the Plantation, Sunrise, Tamarac, and surrounding areas.  Upsilon Xi Omega balances local service programs with international program initiatives to meet the needs of the communities we serve.

In addition to continually implementing our local service programs, we are proud to implement numerous events and service programs in support of our 2022-2026 International Program Theme: “Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood” which has been established under our International President, Danette Anthony Reed.

The International Program includes six initiatives that are designed to advance the mission of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.  “Strengthening our Sisterhood” is our Foundation Initiative as we strengthen our bonds to support our service mission.  The other 5 initiatives are:


  • Empowering Our Families
  • Building Our Economic Wealth
  • Enhancing Our Environment
  • Advocating for Social Justice
  • Uplifting our Local Community
