Description

Brothers of the Western Region,

Your Western Region Leadership Team is pleased to issue this call to the 2019 Western Region Convention to be held in beautiful Bellevue Washington at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue on Seattle’s Eastside, located at 900 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA 98004 from March 27th - 31st, 2019.

This year’s theme will be "THE COLLECTIVE ALPHA IMPACT : Fiscal Literacy, Civic Awareness & Fraternal Excellence".The challenges facing communities of color have not subsided. In fact, many indicators would suggest they have increased. Fortunately, Alpha’s unique position to develop leaders who disrupt the status quo and champion positive change in our communities and nation has not changed. Throughout this convention, our focus will be the continued development and deployment of our brothers to better leverage our combined potential to effect change in the financial, civic and fraternal arenas.

While all Collegiate and Alumni chapters are expected to register, at a minimum, their full delegate strength all chapters should check with their respective District Directors for their target registration numbers. Additionally, as a kick-off to the weekend’s activities, a hosted reception for all Western Region officers, corporate sponsors and convention special guests will be held on Wednesday evening. All Western Region Officers are asked to indicate their ability to attend at the time of their registration.

Additionally, we look forward to a continuation of many of last year’s new social opportunities including; a full track of Ladies Activities with registration; the annual region-wide gaming tournament featuring Bid-whist, Spades & Dominos; a brotherhood smoke; and much, much more.
