    Cincinnati OH
  • Number of Participants 617
  • Committee Observation CAC, the City of
    Cincinnati, and surrounding areas were very
    receptive and excited about the return of the
    Ebony Fashion Fair to the Cincinnati community.
    The venue and runway set up allowed every
    audience member to have a great view of the show
    and fashions, which allowed for every seat to be
    considered an excellent seat. The increased
    number of chapter volunteers allowed for the
    evening to run smoothly and for the chapter to be
    highly visible to the city in hosting such a
    prestigious event. An event date other than a
    holiday such as Halloween, the increased support
    of the chapter, sponsors, and donations is needed
    for future successful events. The committee
    looks forward to even more chapter support and
    community commitment for attendance at future CAC
    events and the EFF. A big THANK YOU to the EFF
    Committee and the Chapter for their support.

Social Action Committee Report
  • The 20th Annual Delta Days in the Nation's
    Capital is fast approaching.  We have at least 5
    Sorors, who plan to attend. Registration is
    officially closed and is sold out. We look
    forward to taking advantage of the opportunity to
    interact with a few of our Nations leaders and to
    move our chapter closer to the goal of
    Strengthening Our Legacy.
  • Plans for Delta Days at City Hall are underway.
    This event has a twofold mission. First, it will
    allow our members to witness and obtain first
    hand knowledge about city management in order to
    become more informed civic participants. Second,
    it will provide an opportunity for our members to
    interact with our local leaders and pose
    questions about communal concerns.
  • Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 28
    Wednesday 29, 2009. Due to the success of our
    first DDCH, we plan to have a similar format
    where we invite the Mayor, City Manager, Council
    Members and various City Department Heads to
    visit with us on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, we
    will take advantage of the opportunity to sit in
    on a City Council meeting, which will begin at
    200pm. We intend to incorporate as many of your
    concerns as possible, so once again we encourage
    you to fill out the attached form to let the
    committee know what concerns you may have that
    should be addressed to our City officials.
  • We would like to get a preliminary head count of
    all of you who are looking forward to
    participating to sign up today. More information
    will be forthcoming.
  • The next meeting will be on Saturday, March 14,
    2009 at 200pm, 3252 North Bend Rd., Cincinnati,
    OH 45239.
  • As an FYI, the mayor will hold his State of the
    City address on Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at
    630pm at Duke Energy Center. As a result, the
    2pm Council meeting for that day has been
