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 2019 is Blossoming Sisterhood
Alpha Gamma Delta strives to build strong and independent women in throughout their membership. This theme urges sisters to consider how our Fraternity has encouraged the development of women’s leadership skills and to reach outside their local groups to inspire women in our local communities.
