SAAC Senior Kappa Affairs
San Antonio Alumni Chapter (SAAC) Senior Kappa Affairs is organized as a standing committee within the alumni chapter. All San Antonio area IHQ initiated members of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, who are 60 years of age or older, are eligible to participate in SAAC Senior Kappa activities. SAAC encourages all Senior Kappa brothers to be active dues paying members, but this is not a requirement to participate in Senior Kappa activities and receive information about Senior Kappa initiatives.
The SAAC Senior Kappas established a tradition of meeting once a month on a Saturday morning for breakfast. The brothers discuss issues from the last chapter or BOD meeting, plan senior initiatives and just enjoy the fellowship over a meal. The meeting is open to all brothers in the chapter and we usually see several non-senior brothers who show up for the fellowship.
Unfortunately, the traditional Senior Kappa breakfast meetings are on hold due to COVID restrictions, but we have initiated Saturday morning ZOOM video conference meetings on an as scheduled basis. We are definitely missing the traditional greeting of the handshake and the food, but we are trying to retain as much of the fellowship as possible.
