Chapter History

The Chicago Northwest Suburban Alumne Chapter was organized in October, 1956.

On September 3, 1956, the first meeting of Kappa Alpha Theta alumnae in the Northwest suburban Chicago area was held.  There were 11 Thetas present.  We were chartered as a Club shortly thereafter in October, 1956 with Betty Lindstrom as President.  In January 1970, Theta's Centennial year, we were re-chartered as a chapter with Betty Chilton as President. 

We have won many awards since those first Thetas gathered, some of which are listed below:
