Founding

  • The first executive council consisted of Jeff Lawton, Jeff Carter, Kim Smith, and Laurie Howard.
  • The Capital Chapter was officially recognized at the 1996 National Convention in Norfolk.
  • The Charter was presented at 1997 National Convention in Cincinnati. The Charter called the Chapter the "Washington DC Alumni Chapter" despite the fact that the Chapter's incorporation was as the "Capital Chapter." The group continues to brand itself exclusively as the Capital Chapter. At the 2005 Grand Chapter the chapter began to be referred to as "Capital Chapter" at the national level.
