Brothers of Alpha South,

On behalf of the Southern Region Board of Directors, we greet you in the true spirit of the fraternity!

It is our esteemed honor to issue this Convention Call for the 92nd Anniversary Southern Regional Convention scheduled for March 9-12, 2023, in Orlando, FL at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel, where we will convene under the theme, “Developing, Promoting, Serving and Advocating with Laser-Focused Intentionality.”

The local host chapters and the convention planning team are working diligently to ensure that the brothers of Alpha South have a great time in Orlando and that the “True Spirit of Fraternity” reigns supreme.

During this convention, we will continue to focus on dismantling social justice and civil rights barriers, while ensuring that our brothers are provided the tools to challenge assaults against our freedoms and our democracy. We will also continue our robust efforts of providing brothers with significant personal and professional development through our Alpha South Training and Development Academy. In addition to hearing General President Lonzer and Vice President Howard deliver the State of the Fraternity and State of the Southern Region, we will also name the participants for our inaugural South Africa Study Abroad Program and our Alpha South History Research Project.
