         Editorial Board Updates Its Guidelines

              eginning in 2023, the DKG Bulletin: International Journal for
        BProfessional Educators will no longer specify a theme for         The Delta Kappa Gamma Bulletin
        each issue. This change takes place in recognition of the breadth
        of educational roles of our members and the breadth of educa-           International Journal for
        tional issues of importance to educators worldwide. In line with        Professional Educators
        the Society’s Mission, the overriding focus for journal submissions                             2022 Volume 89-1
        will be on articles related to professional and personal growth and
        excellence in education. One goal of this shift is to remove per-
        ceived obstacles — i.e., limitation of topics — so that members

        more readily embrace the opportunity to access the benefits of
            The 2022–2024 Editorial Board is also piloting a new initia-
        tive. To further the impact of the journal and attract key women            Changing Perspectives on
        educators, members will  now  be allowed to  sponsor  or invite              Teaching and Learning
        colleagues to submit to the journal. Such sponsorship/invitation
        will complement the existing policy of allowing nonmembers to

        co-author with members. Watch for additional information on how to participate in this pilot initiative.
            The DKG Editorial Board hopes these measures will expand not only the number of submissions to the
        journal but also the depth and breadth of articles for all readers.


           Amendments adopted at the 2022 International Convention affect governing documents at all other levels.
