The inception of the Buckhead/Cascade City Chapter (GA) of The Links, Incorporated began on April 24, 1995. Link Theopia Johnson Tate, under the auspices and direction of Link Jo Ahn Brown-Nash, Chapter Establishment Officer and National Vice President, served as liaison to the National Office. The 39 charter members were women in the political arena, judges, doctoral recipients, physicians, registered nurses, attorneys, entrepreneurs, volunteers, curators, state and federal government personnel, cultural enthusiasts, community activists and homemakers. This diverse membership led to the establishment of a dynamic chapter created and chartered by National President Link Patricia Russell-McCloud, National Vice President Link Jo Ahn Brown-Nash and Ninth Past President Link Dolly Adams.
The mission of the Buckhead/Cascade City Chapter is to provide major leadership in the community and to serve as role models in our ever expanding positive experiences as a service organization locally, regionally and nationally. Our vision is to be committed to excellence in our prioritized, educational, civic and intercultural activities with the visualization that it is possible to enrich the lives of members of the larger community. This is accomplished through strategic coordination of five major facets of Linkdom namely: The Arts, Services to Youth, Health and Human Services, National Trends and Services and International Trends and Services. The programmatic thrust and promotion thereof in the communities we service through cultural activities, education, wellness (health) programs, chapter contributions, is shared and perpetuated by all 81 members of our chapter as we pursue our “Linkages Toward The Possible.”

Linking with Leadership – Spring is synonymous with new beginnings. As you are reading this issue of LINKED, spring is on the horizon – just as The Links, Incorporated is on the verge of a new chapter in her history. In July, at our 39th National Assembly in National Harbor, Md., we will elect our 16th national president, and she will be charged with taking our beloved organization to new levels of greatness. She, too, will follow in the footsteps of our beloved 7th national president, Link Julia Brogden Purnell, a woman whose example of leadership and strength of spirit will be forever missed and never, ever forgotten.

A Legacy of Leading – The year 2011 will be remembered as the year we celebrated two major milestones in the history of The Links Incorporated. One was the expansion of our headquarters at 1200 Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C., and the other, the 65th birthday and anniversary of our organization that started with just two friends. Today, we continue with friendships extending across the United States and the Bahamas, becoming more and more equipped to build upon our history of supporting and providing for people of African descent.
