Dear Brothers

It is my honor and pleasure to invite you to “The Gate City” of Greensboro, NC for my installation as the 35th General President of our beloved Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. This event will take place on January 6-8, 2017, at the Sheraton Greensboro Hotel at Four Seasons located at 3121 W Gate City Blvd, Greensboro, NC 27407.

All brothers are invited to participate in the ceremonial installation. Please log on to AlphaNET and register today. The deadline for registering is December 12, 2016.If you would like to purchase an ad in the souvenir journal, please click here.

As you know, the city of Greensboro was instrumental to the Civil Rights Movement. On February 1, 1960, four students at the historic N.C. A&T State University sat down at the Woolworth lunch counter and asked to be served a cup of coffee. Their courageous actions sparked what has become known as the Sit-In Movement. It is in the spirit of these four young men that we gather in Greensboro to celebrate the start of this administration.

As our late Brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.” The Ward administration promises to be proactive in speaking out against the injustices of our people and communities and will be advocates, lend our voices and offer solutions to address the issues facing our communities. Please join me in Greensboro as we kick off the work of this administration.

If you have any problems attempting to log in or register, please contact the General Office at 800-373-3089 or and speak to one of our membership coordinators.

Brothers, I look forward to seeing you in Greensboro, January 6-8, 2017.

Fraternally Moving Alpha Forward,

Everett B. Ward, Ph.D.

General President-Elect
