Welcome to the Region

Photo of Barbara Denson TrotterGreetings to All! I am Barbara Denson Trotter, the 24th Far Western Regional Director. Welcome to the Internet home of the Fantastic Far Western Region.

Our Far Western family of sister friends is proud of our 93-year history. Our region has grown into nearly 100 graduate and undergraduate chapters spread across nine states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. We are a sister network of unbelievably talented and caring women who routinely give of themselves and their resources in service to all mankind.

Under the international leadership of our esteemed 29th president, Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson, and the Sorority's programs and international platform: Launching New Dimensions of Service℠, the Far Western Region will combine traditional programs with new concepts to improve the lives of those in the communities we serve.

My hope is that we embrace this site as a place to reconnect, communicate and educate each other, because knowledge is power. The power of Alpha Kappa Alpha is alive and well and resides in each one of us as we focus on doing BIG things in this region.
