92nd Annual Eastern Regional Convention

Thursday, April 25, 2024 - Sunday, April 28, 2024   iCalendar Eastern Standard Time

Greetings Brothers of the Eastern Region,

In accordance with Article III, Section 2.3 of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity – Constitution, the leadership of the Eastern Region is pleased to present the official Convention Call for the 92nd Anniversary Eastern Regional Convention of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated to be held on April 25th – April 28th, 2024, in Philadelphia, PA.

This year our convention theme is "Everywhere We Go, We Tell Our Story: Advancing Alpha’s Footprint” and builds specifically on our 90th and 91st Anniversary themes “Writing Alpha’s Next Chapter” and “The True Spirit of Fraternity”, respectively. Alpha’s story is still being written, but unfortunately, some people think that we are an organization for the 20th century. It is incumbent upon us to let people know the work of Alpha has never stopped, as it is abundantly clear that the fight for advocacy, equity, and social justice is needed now more than ever. To S.E.R.V.E. with purpose, we must “Strategically Elevate the Relevance, Value, and Effectiveness of our Fraternity.

his year’s theme allows us to explore our methods of communication, storytelling skills, and the importance of controlling and crafting the narrative. With a focus on media literacy and engagement, content creation, and best practices for chapter and professional branding, we will promote membership and personal development, and leadership, organizational, and business development. These skills will allow us to amplify our Fraternity’s mission and better aid our communities around the globe.

From the Public Program to our signature workshops and social events, we remain committed to creating memorable and meaningful experiences for Brothers, their families, and the community at large.

Fittingly, “The City of Brotherly Love” will serve as the House of Alpha for this convention and our host chapters are eager to show AlphaEast what Philadelphia has to offer.

First of All: Leading the Way,

Brother Christopher G. Ellis, 29th Eastern Regional Vice President

Brother Yousef Omer, 63rd Eastern Regional Assistant Vice President
