International Reunion Day—often referred to as IRD—is a time to develop or rekindle Fraternity friendships and to renew and develop an 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.
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 IRD, which is celebrated on or near the third Saturday of April each year.
The IRD theme for 2022 is our tagline LOVING LEADING LASTING. The goals set forth by our Founders have helped make us the loving, leading, lasting organization we are today. IRD is a prefect time to reflect on all we have accomplished and renew our dedication to LOVING each other, LEADING Alpha Gam into the next year and cultivating a LASTING bond with one another.
