On October 26, 1983, five members − Evelyn Hamilton, Beverly Long, Beverly Russell, Jacqueline Macklin and Yvonne Moss − met to discuss organizing a second graduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) Sorority in Dallas, Texas for the purposes of reactivating, reclaiming and retaining members in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. An invitation was extended to several inactive members to attend a “Special Invitation Only Social Affair” on Sunday, November 13, 1983, at the home of Evelyn Hamilton. Along with the invitation, a handwritten request from the hostess requested guests to keep the information “confidential.” It was at this meeting, the TIAKA (Those Interested In Alpha Kappa Alpha) Interest Group was formed.

On December 11, 1983, Dr. Mamie McKnight, South Central (SC) Regional Director, met with the 46 TIAKA members and shared the steps for chartering a chapter. The members worked tirelessly to complete the tasks and institute projects for approval of a Chapter Charter. Evelyn Hamilton was elected by the group to serve as the President of TIAKA. The other officers of the group were as follows: Beverly Long, First Vice President; Beverly Russell, Second Vice President; Brenda Lewis, Recording Secretary; Cynthia Bursey, First Assistant Secretary, Virginia Hare, Second Assistant Secretary; Yvonne Moss, Corresponding Secretary; Jacqueline Maclin, Treasurer; Pamela Lister, Reporter; Della Austin, Hostess; Serita Lattimore, Door Keeper; and, Bennie Lister, Parliamentarian.

On Saturday, June 23, 1984, Omicron Mu Omega (OMΩ) Chapter was established. The Gala Celebration was held at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas,Texas with 43 of the 46 interest group members introduced as the newest members of Omicron Mu Omega Chapter, the 104th Graduate Chapter in the Sorority and the second Graduate Chapter in Dallas

Several Outstanding Chapter Programs Were Started In 1984 And Remain In Effect Today. These Include:

•Cachet Youth Group (Signature Program)

•The Image Award Scholarship Luncheon

•AKAlades, the Official Choral Group

•Annual Chapter Retreat

•Annual Reactivation Round-up

Since her Charter, Omicron Mu Omega Chapter has evolved from the forty three (43) charter members to a current membership of over 500 members. Omicron Mu Omega continues to fulfill the dream of the TIAKA Interest Group visionaries by initiating new members, while reclaiming and retaining her members.
