Convention Call

Brothers of AlphaEast,

In accordance with Article III, Section 2.3 of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity – Constitution, the leadership of the Eastern Region is pleased to present this official Convention Call for the 85th Annual Eastern Region Convention of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, to be held March 30 – April 2, 2017 in Alexandria, Virginia.

As we close out the AlphaForward tenure, our focus is squarely on the future of our Brotherhood. As noted by our
theme – “Developing Leaders for Tomorrow’s Challenges” – the focus is on the blueprint for preparing the next
generation men of and for Alpha Phi Alpha; those who will serve as leaders within and to our communities. This
preparation includes the tools and best practices our future leaders need to succeed.

This includes crafting what’s essential to sustain our obligation to remain cognizant of all we do as it’s for the
next generation. As we prepare for the next generation[s] just the men of Alpha Phi Alpha, in general, and the
Eastern Region, in particular, have to remember the youth are our primary focus. Everything we do is for their
benefit and edification.

Socially, the Brothers of the Northern Virginia area are excited to once again ensure we are pleased with a variety of entertainment and recreational options on the Potomac River within eyesight of Washington, DC just minutes away from the convention site…the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center.
