For many years, Alpha Gamma Deltas gathered to celebrate May 30 as Founders' Day. This became increasingly difficult since many colleges and universities were either closed or taking final exams during this time. In 1936, Founders' Day became a historic term and was replaced with International Reunion Day (IRD), which is to be celebrated on the third Saturday of April every year.
IRD is a time to develop or rekindle Fraternity friendships and to renew and develop understanding of the true meaning of Alpha Gamma Delta. It’s celebrated in various ways throughout the Fraternity with large and small groups gathering for luncheons, dinners and community service.
The theme for IRD 2020 IS NO MATTER THE WEATHER, SISTERS STICK TOGETHER
Alpha Gamma Delta works in member’s lives to create a loving, leading and lasting sisterhood. This theme urges sisters to consider how the sisterhood they have experienced in our Fraternity has supported them throughout their lives.

Note: International Headquarters recommends International Reunion Day events not take place in person this year due to COVID-19 concerns. Local groups are responsible for any changes to their IRD plans. Instead of hosting an in-person IRD, consider virtually connecting with sisters and celebrating our Fraternity.
