National President, Dr. Paulette Walker states, “Conducting the regional conference in Boston, Massachusetts will conclude the Sorority's 2014 Regional Conference cycle. For three months we have traveled to six states across the country in order to  conduct the business of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Just as the sun rises in the East, the same is true of the dawning of our magnificent sorority.  Over 101 years ago, in Washington, DC which is a part of our Eastern Region, 22 collegiate women at Howard University used their collective strengths to promote academic excellence and provide assistance to those in need.
Though Boston is the seventh and final location of the conference cycle, we are thrilled to end where it all began:  in the Eastern Region.”

Eastern Regional Director, Ms. Robin Jacobs states, “The conference is designed to implement initiatives centered around the sorority’s programmatic thrust. I am truly excited about the future of the Eastern Region and the impact these initiatives will continue to have on the community for which we serve.”
