Greetings Sorors and Friends,

Thank you for visiting the official website of the Gary Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. We are a chapter of approximately 200 members celebrating 84 years of service in Northwest Indiana. We are grateful for the bold and courageous vision our 22 Founders had in 1913, as well as the seven women who chartered Gary Alumnae (GAC) in 1938. GAC continues to provide a legacy of impactful programs for our communities through our Five-Point Programmatic Thrust: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.

Over the 23 years I have been a member of Delta Sigma Theta, I have experienced our organization’s advancement and progress. New and improved technology has allowed the general public to experience GAC’s programs in person or via an online platform. GAC has always been at the forefront because of the love we have for our community and the love we have for our Sorors.

Our theme, “GAC: Leading and Serving with Tenacity since 1938” describes our goals during this biennium. We will continue to focus on our national and regional initiatives and embrace corporate and community partnerships to bring the best programs and services to our communities.
Thank you for visiting our website.

Please explore our calendar for upcoming events.
