Distinguished Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. in the Mighty; Mighty District of Illinois! It is with great pride that I bring greetings to you as the District Director of Illinois.
Brothers, this year we have witnessed the transitioning of a great number of Brothers from Labor to Reward. Although these Brothers may no longer be physically present with us, their memories will forever be cemented in our hearts and minds. Our theme for this year’s conference is “Investing in Community, Wealth, Health and Self”. As we continue the journey of “Building up the Vision” you are encouraged to continue our reclamation efforts by inviting a Brother that has been out of the Black & Old Gold loop for some time. At a minimum, all Chapters are expected to register their full delegate strength.
