|Subject:||Honoring Alpha Phi Omega, coed National Service Fraternity on their contributions and National Convention in Pittsburgh, PA|
In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution honoring Alpha Phi Omega, coed National Service Fraternity and their significant contributions to our nation’s communities and their 44th Biennial National Convention to be held in Pittsburgh, PA from December 27-30th.
Alpha Phi Omega was founded on December 16, 1925 at Lafayette College under the ideals of scouting for college men to develop leadership, promote friendship and to provide service to humanity. Throughout the years, APO has grown from a single chapter to over 367 chapters today. Not only has this national service fraternity grown, the organization has modernized itself in becoming a coed organization in 1976. Through the founding ideals, over 400,000 college men and women have come to participate in this nationwide brotherhood.
Alpha Phi Omega also prides itself as an organization that is entirely in the hands of the college students in each local collegiate chapter. Every two years, students gather for a National Convention, the supreme authority of APO where students decide on changes to the national organization and future direction of the fraternity. This year, APO will be celebrating their 44th Biennial National Convention in Pittsburgh where attendance is expected to be over 2,000 students and alumni.
Please join me in recognizing Alpha Phi Omega as they celebrate their 44th National Convention in Pittsburgh this December. Thank you.
