History

In 2000, The Texas Chapter became one of the new chapters of the Association, encompassing Spartans from Houston and Dallas. According to convention records, the Texas Chapter had 40 members. In 2001, the Texas Chapter hosted the 9th Convention in Houston, Texas under the leadership of President Jehu Brandy. The theme was "Looking Beyond the Inevitable."

After 2002, unfortunately the Texas Chapter became inactive. ­­­In 2011, Spartans led by Yuku Stewart indicated an interest in reactivating the Texas Chapter. On October 24, 2011, the National Association worked with the interested members consistent with established Guidelines ­and the Constitution, which resulted in the reactivation of the chapter.

In 2012, under the leadership of the National Chair, Gudrun Harris, the Texas Chapter was officially reactivated, and elections were held, officiated by Cllr. Mohamedu F. Jones. In addition to National Chair Harris, 2nd Vice National Chair Ms. Georgina Roy Akins Briggs and Tri-State Board Member David Moore, Chair of the Membership Committee were instrumental in assisting with the reactivation of the chapter.
