Welcome to the 2020 National Conference

More Than Just (II Corinthians 3:18)

My Dearest Sorors,


It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you once again to the “Gathering of the Hummingbirds”—our 2020 National Conference. We had some awesome plans to host this year’s conference in Memphis, TN with special musical guest Kierra Sheard. But, due to COVID-19, we will host our conference online. This is a first for us, but we know that God will still be glorified!

Every year, what makes our conference great is you. We are looking forward to you joining us online. This year’s theme is “More than Just...” based on the key text 2 Corinthians 3:18. It signifies that we are more than just the stereotypical, superficial sorority. We are more than just our limitations. We are more than just our pasts. We are more than just our fears. But, we are more and more becoming the women that Jesus Christ would have us be. 

The National Conference will provide us with an opportunity to gain additional knowledge about our sorority, while also increasing our bonds of sisterhood. Make it a point to get to know one new soror at this year’s conference!

You are encouraged to have a good time and learn important information prepared to advance our great sisterhood. Attendance is vital in order to stay prepared for leadership opportunities in your chapters and colonies. I will miss “hugging your necks”, but I cannot wait to see you online!

With love, 

Founder Vila-Sheree Watson

National President
