Later she was corresponding secretary, recording secretary, second vice-president, first vice-president, and elected as state president for the 2005-2007 biennium. Ann Marie served as co-chair of the 2004 CCOT seminar for newly-elected chapter officers and chairs. She was appointed state historian in 2003.
Many DKG friendships were formed because Mrs. Kesler organized a tour of Scandinavia following the 1997 Northeast Regional Conference held in Stockholm, Sweden.
