Call to Conference
Updated: July 9, 2018  


The 58th Anniversary District Conference will convene October 5-6, 2018, at the Embassy Suites North Charleston Airport/Hotel & Convention Center located at 5055 International Boulevard, North Charleston, South Carolina.

The Brothers of Area V have worked to ensure that this District Conference will exceed your expectations.  Brothers and guests will leave this Conference inspired, challenged and more involved with their individual communities and the brotherhood as a whole.

The 58th Anniversary District Conference will continue the new traditions established with the 2016 District Conference.  It will be a two-day conference, and the awards will be integrated throughout the competitions and events.  The conference activities will include the Fraternal Luncheon, the Life Members Breakfast and a brotherhood activity on Friday evening that will increase and enhance the fraternal bond between every brother in attendance. 

During the Public Program, we will recognize and honor two new South Carolina Living Legends from the chapters in Area V.  We will also commemorate the Emanuel Nine who were tragically slain on June 17, 2015, at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church, in Charleston, South Carolina.  We will do this by honoring individuals and organizations who embody their spirit and service to others.  We are please to announce that the Public Program will take place at Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcal Church located at 110 Calhoun Street, Charleston, South Carolina, beginning at 6 p.m.

There will also be an opportunity to engage in our "signature" community service projects, Let's Tie Things Up and Alpha Men Do Read.  Both projects are designed to impact our communities in  the Areas where we host our District Conference and the whole of the District of South Carolina.  Brothers will serve middle school male students through Let's Tie Things Up by conducting an interactive workshop regarding the importance of a positive and professional male image and career readiness.  Alpha Men Do Read represents the District's proactive measure to promote literacy development in elementary schools.  Brothers will conduct a book drive and dedicate reading time at local elementary schools.

What can you do to ensure the success of the 58th Anniversary District Conference?  The answer is very simple, make sure that your chapter delegates and brothers are registered for the District Conference, as well as, participate in the chapter awards and competitions.
