WHAT IS THE LDC?

The Leadership Development Committee (LDC) is responsible for evaluating and cultivating Fraternity leaders for service in elected and key appointed positions. This committee is made up of a chair, eight alumnae members and two collegiate members who are slated by the previous LDC and elected by the Convention body each biennium. This committee’s main goal is to help all Tri Delta women grow as brave, bold and kind leaders within and outside our organization. Traditionally, collegiate leadership positions are filled through sisters nominating other sisters to fulfill certain roles in a chapter, but the LDC encourages members to nominate themselves or a sister.
