Didi S. Boynton
Southern Regional Assistant Director
I was initiated into the Gamma Alpha Chapter (Miami, FL) on November 9, 2002, with five terrific women. My seventeen years have consisted of serving as Chapter President, Vice President, Secretary, Journalist, Dean of Intake and Parliamentarian. I have also served on numerous regional committees, as the Southern Regional Journalist and now Assistant Regional Director. My most memorable moment in Iota happened during a Regional Conference hosted in Miami. I provided a platform for our now past National President Charlotte Maull to be interviewed on live radio. It was such an exciting moment for her and my pleasure to be of service to Iota.

Greetings I’m Brenda T. Levine the Southern Regional Treasurer. I was inducted into this illustrious sisterhood on March 4, 2004 at Delta Chapter in Atlanta, GA. Over the years I’ve served locally in various roles such as 2nd VP, 1st VP and Interim Dean of Intake. Currently, I serve as Delta Chapter President. In addition to various committees on the Local, Regional and National levels. My most memorable Iota moment was attending my first 80th National Convention in Houston, TX. Seeing a sea of Business and Professional women was fuel to my fire. Having breakfast with the PNOC was great. But the White Rose Queens granting our photo request was priceless. The humility and time spent with us made that experience priceless.
