Key Groups are our small groups within the association that gather based off of a similarity (e.g. location, activity, etc.). New members are always welcome!
During the pandemic, our groups will be meeting both in person and virtually.
To become a member of a Key Group, you must first be a dues-paying member of the NoVA Kappa Alumnae Association. Pay dues here. Upcoming events and details are emailed to dues-payers in our monthly newsletter.
Interested in starting a new group? Contact our Key Groups Chair.
Alexandria Kappas includes Kappas of all ages who are interested in meeting in Alexandria (or nearby). You do not have to live in Alexandria. We usually meet on weekday evenings, but occasionally on Sat. mornings.
The Daytimers get together once a month for Kappa camaraderie, usually visiting an area attraction and/or enjoying lunch together. Meetings are held weekdays during the day and members are from all age groups. Although our meetings were virtual last year, we plan to meet in-person as much as possible in 2021-22. In the works: a visit to Turning Point Suffragist Memorial and lunch, a trip to Union Market, tours of the FBI Museum and Patent Museum, and much more!
Girls that Gab is a new group for women to zoom monthly to connect and socialize.
The Kappa Day Book Group generally meets on the second Wednesday of the month, with the exception of December and summer months. Our meeting time is 10:30 am but we do change that on occasion. Since COVID we have been meeting via ZOOM, outdoors or in a less crowded venue. Our books are chosen at our meetings with selections recommended by our members. We welcome all NoVA Kappas to attend any or many of our meetings. If anyone would like to be added just to our mailing list to see what the group is reading that would be great too. And we would enjoy your input as well.
Moms and Tots is a group for moms of preschool aged kids. Prior to the pandemic we tried to have a monthly playdate. We mostly communicate through our Facebook group and will use the group to make a plan for this year.
Night Owls meet for drink and snacks/dinner in either Arlington or Alexandria. While everyone is welcome the group is usually made up of women in the 20s-40s range. Our current plan is to meet once every few months.
