On September 17, 2010 many dreams were fulfilled as ASTEF came to be more than a dream but a reality.
The Board of Directors thanks everyone who has played some part in making ASTEF a huge success. Your generosity has made dreams come true for countless Texas children, students, and educators!
As you plan your programs for the upcoming year, consider asking an ASTEF Director (current or former) to speak or use some of the many resources found on the ASTEF website (www.astef.org) with more being added soon. It's the perfect time for a program on ASTEF.
Remember, February is ASTEF Foundation Month/Giving Month. As always the Board has many exciting things planned for this special month. You won't want to miss out on these.
Happy Birthday ASTEF and thanks to ALL!

Important information from International regarding the sale of the building.

As you are aware, DKG has been involved in the process of selling our headquarters building for the past two years. That process has been completed and the sale was final on September 1, 2021. The conversations surrounding next steps will now transition into action as we finalize plans to move to a new site.

A meeting of the International Administrative Board was called in August to determine a plan for the transition to a new office space. The major actions taken by the board during that meeting are attached. The Board determined it would be in the Society’s best interests to lease office space for the immediate future. If future ownership is considered, a constitutional amendment would be required in order to purchase an existing building in lieu of land development or construction. Due to the dynamic nature of the Austin area real estate market, an ad hoc committee was appointed to approve potential lease options. We will certainly keep you updated as the exploration progresses.

Members may inquire about how the proceeds from the sale will be managed or used. Because the building is considered a permanent asset, the proceeds from the sale of it were appropriately deposited into the Permanent Fund of the Society. The Constitution defines in Article IV how the monies in the Permanent Fund may be used and will be the guide for any future use of the sale proceeds. Of course, the Board’s primary concern leading to the sale was a consideration of the continued and potential cost to members regarding maintenance costs, taxes, structural constraints, and a variety of increasing expenses relating to the building.

As the managing authority of both the building and its contents, the Board also authorized the consideration of appraisal firms to value and possibly sell redundant items in the building. A previously appointed ad hoc committee, consisting of board members, members, and staff, is working on a recommendation regarding archiving, preserving and keeping, moving, selling and/or disposing of the furnishings and other items in the building. The recommendation from that committee will be considered by the Board during its next meeting.

As always, your feedback is welcomed. Under a lease agreement, the building will be occupied by DKG for six (6) months after the sale. While the six months provides some time to consider all viable options, we also realize that time will not allow us to move too slowly. And so, our journey to a new site continues forward with increasing momentum.

Please share this email and the attachments with your chapter presidents and state organization members. For your information we are attaching a copy of the announcement being made public today by the company that has purchased the headquarters building. We appreciate your work on behalf of DKG and our members, as well as your assistance in keeping them informed.

92 years ago, 12 women educators founded The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. They believed that there was need for an organization in which women educators might be united for efforts toward better professional preparation, recognition of women’s work in the teaching profession, and scholarships for those needing aid in improving their professional preparation. Their mission is still going strong 92 years later! 🌹

ASTEF: Olympics 2021

Tokyo may be having problems deciding if the 2021 Olympics will be held in August, but there is no question that the ASTEF Ticketed Event will be held in Denton, Texas, on Friday, June 18, at the Denton Convention Center at 11:00 am in the Chilton/Eagles 1 & 2 rooms.

Speaker for this Olympic event is Johnny Quinn, a McKinney, TX native. He is a member of the U.S. National Bobsled Team and competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Quinn also played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League, the Buffalo Bills (NFL), and the Green Bay Packers (NFL). He lettered in football and track and graduated with a degree in criminal justice from the University of North Texas. Quinn is the founder and president of The Athlete Watch, LLC, a web-based platform for student-athletes to market their skills to colleges and universities around the nation. Quinn has been featured on media outlets around the world, such as: ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, FOX, NBC, TIME, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal.

For more information about Johnny Quinn, visit his website.

Fun Fact

Johnny is the third person ever to have played in the NFL and to have competed in the Winter Olympics.

Herschel Walker (Bobsled) competed in the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France.

Jeremy Bloom (Skiing) competed in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.

Johnny Quinn (Bobsled) competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

But there is much more.

Quinn is also a published author and will be selling and signing his book following the ticketed event. 

Door prizes will be awarded to finalize this Olympic Celebration.

It's not too late to purchase your tickets for this event. Tickets can be purchased prior to convention by contacting Terri Caldwell at [email protected]. You will also be able to purchase tickets at the convention registration desk following the Thursday evening Opening Session.
