Chapter History

Our Chapter

The Central Arkansas Alumnae Chapter (CAAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered in 1996. CAAC is a non-profit organization that is comprised of college-educated women committed to both the constructive development of its members and public service.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., at its inception, was established to provide aid and assistance to the economically disadvantaged communities and work to remove and/or neutralize racial and economic disparities. Central Arkansas Alumnae Chapter has accepted the charge from the National Executive Board of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to continue this mission in the community in which we serve. Central Arkansas Alumnae Chapter services Conway, Faulkner, Lonoke, Pulaski, Saline and White counties.

Since the inception of CAAC, the members have organized various projects and activities to support the mission and goals of the sorority. Each individual member adds expertise to the programs and projects developed and implemented by CAAC. The Central Arkansas Alumnae Chapter is dedicated to promoting the ideas of sisterhood, scholarship, and service throughout the community.

To date, Central Arkansas Alumnae boasts a membership of approximately 140 dedicated women. We are constantly on the move and growing! Our doors are always open to new ideas, as well as to sorors looking for a chapter to call home. We invite you to come grow with us as we serve the needs of the central Arkansas area.

Charter Members

The birth of Central Arkansas Alumnae Chapter was conceived through the vision, dedication and “Good Ole Delta Spirit” of four torch bearers: Jocelyn Crump Williams, Jennifer R. Smith, Jacqueline Williams Lindsey, and Dorisene Wallace Hill. With the rich history of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. etched in their heads these ladies stepped out on faith and on November 9, 1996, CAAC was officially chartered. CAAC has continued to grow and flourish in membership and service but for the vision to continue we as members must remember the hard work and commitment given by the 28 charter members who paved the way.
