Our National Headquarters (HQ) consists of a Board of Directors (BOD) and National Headquarters Staff (HQ Staff). The BOD plans the strategic direction of the sorority while the HQ Staff leads the day-to-day operations and implements the strategic plan. The Board-Headquarters relationship is a partnership and cannot function without both working in tandem.
These Dedicated Female Leaders® embody the virtues of Delta Phi Lambda® and work tirelessly to shape the future of our Everlasting Sisterhood®.
