Nearly 1,000 Southern Region members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. attended the 2017 Florida & the Bahamas Regional State Cluster Meeting and Mock Convention at the Daytona International Speedway March 31-April 2.  

The Cluster is a regional event hosted by the Regional Leadership Team and host chapters to strengthen members’ knowledge of the organization and to help prepare for the organization’s national convention which will be held in Las Vegas in August. 

Sorority members Shameeka Quallo, Esq., Corporate Council, International Speedway Corporation and Dawn Harris, Senior Director of Multicultural Development, NASCAR attended and offered welcome remarks on behalf of both corporations. 

The sorority has 208 chapters and 15,000 members in the Southern Region, so the event was very significant for the region and for the entire Central Florida area.  Locally, Volusia County has three of those chapters; the Daytona Beach Alumnae Chapter, the DeLand Alumnae Chapter and the Delta Alpha Chapter on the campus of Bethune-Cookman University.
