What's an Interest Group?
A group of NoVA Kappa Alumnae members who share common interests and meet monthly/bimonthly for fun events. New members are always welcome! In order to be a member of an interest group, you must be a current member of the Association, so be sure to register with the Association first so you can hear about upcoming events for the interest groups! We have several groups that are looking for a new chair. Don't see the interest group you were looking for below? You can start a new one!
If you are a registered member, click here for contact information of each interest group chair and check out our Interest Group News for upcoming interest group events and meetings.
For more information on the interest groups, please contact our Interest Groups Chair.
