Greetings Brothers of Alpha East -

We hope that you are enjoying a safe and productive summer. We are pleased to present this official notification for the 10th Annual William E. Ross, Jr. Eastern Region College Brothers Retreat of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. The retreat will be held September 23-24, 2022 at Rutgers University, Camden, New Jersey . As AlphaEast continues to uphold our motto, AlphaEast Forward, First of All: Leading the Way , we will engage in discussions surrounding critical topics facing collegiate chapters and strategically craft ways for us to enhance our work of Alpha. Reflecting those ideals, the Retreat theme is “Changing Today, Impacting Tomorrow.”

As many are returning to campus, we will work relentlessly to ensure the retreat is a valuable use of your time. The session has the vital and pertinent information to help foster the elevation of your chapter, propel you towards your personal goals, and enhance your development as community organizers and leaders.

We are excited about the opportunity to fellowship, learn and elevate the work of Alpha together. College Chapters should plan to arrive Friday, September 23rd by 7:00 PM and stay until the retreat conclusion on Saturday. Further information and a full schedule of our retreat weekend are forthcoming. Any requests for deviations should be submitted in writing to the Regional Assistant Vice President Tabius Wilson, Jr. (avp@alphaeast.com) and cc the (Asst.) Chief of Staff (asstchiefofstaff@alphaeast.com).

Each chapter is required to have 1 delegate outside of the Chapter President and Dean of Membership attend the retreat in person. All brothers in attendance must be fully vaccinated ( at least two weeks after the second dose of a 2-dose series or two weeks after a single dose of the vaccine ). While 1 delegate is required, we invite ALL brothers to be in attendance as we work to network amongst the collegiate brotherhood. This year’s college brothers retreat is Free of charge , including shared lodging and registration. Each chapter is strongly encouraged to register its leadership and particularly all neophytes. Please register on AlphaMX at https://my.apa1906.net under events. All delegates and attendees must be registered by 11:59 PM on September 20, 2022!

To ensure every brother has all relevant details and information and is comfortable with the 10th Annual William E. Ross, Jr. Eastern Region College Brothers Retreat, we will host a Zoom session on September 11, 2022 , where brothers can ask questions and receive clarification concerning the college brothers retreat. A registration link for this Zoom session will be sent out as we approach the date. Thank you, Brothers, in advance for your cooperation as we prepare for this transformative experience. 

Best Regards,

Christopher G. Ellis, Jr.,

Eastern Regional Vice President
