Collage of Sorors at Virtual Eastern Regional Conference - 9

CJA Wins Big at Eastern Region Virtual Conference

The CJA Deltas initially planned to attend the 52nd Eastern Regional Conference in Maryland during the weekend of August 6th-9th. Although a public gathering was cancelled due to the public health crisis, our amazing organization, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., moved forward with an unprecedented virtual conference. CJA members, adorned in the sorority colors, logged in ready to conduct business virtually on Saturday August 8th. By the end of the daylong conference, the CJA Deltas had received the following regional awards:

  • Eastern Region Medium-Size Chapter of the Year
  • Eastern Region Exemplary Membership Services Award
  • Eastern Region Collegiate Connection Award (Small Chapter) for its collaboration with the Xi Nu Chapter (Rutgers - New Brunswick)
  • Eastern Region Exemplary Code Red Day of Service Award, Runner-Up
  • Eastern Region Cutting Edge Technology Award

We enjoyed our first ever virtual conference and were proud to participate! We are equally proud to be recognized for the impactful programs and services we provide to our service areas in Middlesex, Somerset, and Union counties. Whether in person or virtually, we look forward to being as impactful in 2020-21. #CJADeltas #TheEast #DST1913 #DSTVirtual2020

Be Bold! Be Counted! 2020 Census information table

Social Action Saturday

It was very clearly “Social Action Saturday” for the CJA Deltas today, August 1, 2020! Our Social Action Committee (SAC) divided itself and spent the day in communities across our service area promoting the importance of completing and submitting the 2020 Census. We partnered with the New Brunswick NAACP by participating in the “car caravan.” Our vehicles proudly displayed the chapter’s ongoing message of the need for everyone to “Be Counted.” The chapter also shared its census literature at the kiosk there in New Brunswick. Other SAC members took Elizabeth by storm as the city celebrated its Black Lives Matter Painting and Presentation Ceremony. The CJA Deltas wisely used that gathering to distribute census literature and encourage census completion. It was a full, but rewarding day for the Social Action Committee and it’s what we are called to do as Deltas. #CJADeltas #DST1913 #TheEast #SocialAction #BeCounted #2020Census #CompleteCount
