Greetings in the spirit of our beloved Seven Jewels, and on behalf of Assistant District Director Aaron A. Jones, Jr., our Past District Directors, members of the Board of Directors and Leadership Team, and in accordance with Article II, Section 8.2 of the Georgia District Constitution, I am officially informing you that the 63rd Anniversary Georgia District Convention is herewith called to assemble in the city of Atlanta, during the weekend of November 15 – 17 2018 under the theme “Uplifting the Alpha B.R.A.N.D…Building Relevance for Alpha’s Next Direction”.
Host Chapters: Omicron Phi Lambda (College Park) and Nu Mu (Georgia Institute of Technology)
The below information is provided to you as you prepare to journey to Atlanta.
The Belford V. Lawson Oratorical Competition theme:
In the Letter from Birmingham Jail, Dr. King stated, “One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws, any law that uplifts the human personality is just. Any law that degrades human personality is unjust.” What is an Alpha Man’s responsibility in today’s society?
