Welcome to Lambda Omega Chapter’s website. We are proud members of the “Marvelous Mid-Atlantic Region,” led by Ms. Joyce Henderson, Mid-Atlantic Regional Director. Our chapter was charted in Newport News Virginia on January 13, 1934. Since our inception, we have been committed to providing “Service in our Community and to All Mankind.

Lambda Omega Chapter is comprised of 190+ college-educated, professional women of varying ages, skills, backgrounds and interests. We are represented in numerous occupations and serve in appointed and elected positions on the federal, state and local levels. We are honored to count many trailblazers among our membership, including Dr. Katherine Goble Johnson, NASA icon and inspiration for the novel and Academy Award-nominated movie, Hidden Figures.

Under the leadership of our International President, Dr. Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson, Lambda Omega Chapter has worked tirelessly to promote the sorority’s international program platform of “Launching New Dimensions of ServiceSM’’. As you peruse this website, we hope that you will see our commitment to Educational Enrichment, Health Promotion, Family Strengthening, Environmental Ownership, and Global Impact.

We are incredibly grateful that you have taken the time to visit our website, and we invite you to come back often to obtain information on future events. We encourage you to collaborate with us on service projects and other initiatives so that we can maximize our global outreach and increase community presence. If you are a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and new to the Hampton Roads area, or if you have been an inactive member looking for a chapter home, we welcome you to visit a chapter meeting.
