Welcome to Lambda Omega Chapter’s website. We are proud members of the “Marvelous Mid-Atlantic Region,” led by Ms. Jennifer King-Congleton, 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 200+ 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, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and inspiration for the novel and Academy Award-nominated movie, Hidden Figures.
Under the leadership of our International President, Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover, Lambda Omega Chapter is committed to promoting the sorority’s international program platform of “Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable ServiceSM’’ and the five 2018-2022 program initiatives:
