Greetings from Greater Miami (FL) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated!
Greater Miami (FL) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated was organized in 1955, and we are honored to have the distinction of being the oldest chapter in the South Florida area. As a third-generation legacy, I am the proud granddaughter of one of our three chapter organizers, Susie W. Francis, and daughter of alumna member DanySu F. Pritchett. As I stand on the shoulders of the phenomenal women in my life and our chapter history who have served before me, it is my sincere honor to lead Greater Miami (FL) Chapter in friendship and service to the South Florida community and beyond.
We are extremely proud of our legacy of over six decades of transformational programming, encompassing the five facets of The Links, Incorporated, which are: Services to Youth, The Arts, National Trends & Services, International Trends & Services, and Health & Human Services. Most recently, Greater Miami (FL) Chapter was recognized for Best Practices in programming for our Health & Human Services program, “Linkages to Life: A Real Life Journey.”
Another source of great pride for Greater Miami (FL) Chapter is our legacy of superb leadership in The Links, Incorporated. Our chapter is honored to be home to Regina Jollivette Frazier, Ninth National President (1986-1990) as well as three Southern Area Directors: Maude K. Reid, (Fifth; 1965-1969), Regina Jollivette Frazier, (Ninth; 1981-1984) and Anne Turner Herriott, (Ninthteenth; 2015 – 2019).
