The World Wide Web provides an excellent opportunity to inform other sorors and the public of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. activities throughout the world. The National Information and Communications Committee and the National Headquarters staff have coordinated the development and maintenance of the official home page of the Sorority. Sorors are encouraged to use the technology of the internet to create individual and chapter home pages which complement the National Page and showcase local Delta activities.
