An international honorary organization for women in education holds a regional meeting in Sioux Falls this weekend.

Nine states and two Canadian provinces make up the North Central Region of Alpha Kappa Gamma.

The Convention/Visitors Bureau says 240 members and guests meet Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Sioux Falls Sheraton and Sioux Falls Convention Center.

Organizers say convention-goers are "meeting to celebrate accomplishments and to further our goals of excellence in education, altruism and world understanding."
They will attend workshops and business sessions, and also hear motivational speakers.
