ALPHA GAMMA DELTA ANNOUNCES SALE OF INTERNATIONAL HEADQUARTERS
International Council of Alpha Gamma Delta Fraternity is proud to announce the sale of the International Headquarters building. The search is underway for a new facility, with the official move taking place in fall 2011. By relocating to a new building, International Headquarters will occupy a modern, functional facility that will help the Fraternity continue to grow. In addition, the facility is expected to house both International Headquarters and the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation staff.
"With this move, International Council has affirmed the value of an appropriately-sized, modern facility that will meet the needs of the Fraternity for years to come," said Jackie Brannon Stutts, International President. "While we are proud and grateful for the home that we've occupied for more than 30 years, we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead."
A task force has been assembled to assist with the building search. Members of the task force include Jackie Brannon Stutts, International President; Mary Beth Dulcey Morabito, International Vice President-Alumnae; Stephannie Sack Bailey, Executive Director of the Fraternity; and Julie Cretin, Executive Director of the Foundation. The role of this task force will be to evaluate properties to meet the Fraternity's needs. Dan Duncan, Director of Operations and Planning, and Kelly Larreur, Assistant Director of Properties, will work with realtors and the task force to investigate viable properties.
The Headquarters facility was purchased by an international men's fraternity's foundation. Alpha Gamma Delta will lease back the building until fall 2011. More information will be available on the Fraternity website in the coming weeks.
