My Brothers of Alpha:
In accordance with Article II, Section 5 of the Constitution of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, I do hereby issue the “Official Call” for the men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity to convene in Las Vegas, Nevada for our 95th General Convention as we also celebrate the Fraternity’s 113th anniversary, July 24-28, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. I encourage you to not only take advantage of the reduced, early registration but to also book your hotel rooms today. All registration ends on May 19, 2019.
As a brotherhood, we have heeded the call of the fierce URGENCY OF NOW, and have arrived at a moment in our history, where we can no longer expect the powers that be to ensure equality and justice for the communities we serve. We must leverage our collective talents and strengths to respond to the unrelenting attacks that threaten both our rights and our lives.
Over the past year, we have been fully engaged and committed as we continue to show the world Alpha Advocacy In Action: Silence Is Not An Option! This convention will further encourage and strengthen our capacity and our efforts as we fight to protect and empower our communities.
In addition, this convention will also be an opportunity to become re-energized both professionally and personally. To be effective as Alpha men, we must ensure our sustainability in all facets of our lives. Therefore, we will also offer workshops and sessions that not only strengthen your leadership capacity as engaged fraternity men, but those that also enhance your professional careers and improve your quality of life.
With that, we also hope you and your family can enjoy all the fun and live entertainment that Las Vegas has become legendary for as well as attend our traditional, Black & Old Gold Leadership Gala. I invite you to register now. I look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas.
Onward and Upward Always,
Everett B. Ward, Ph.D.
