Message from the National Chair

Albertha Speech

Our Priorities

  • Our Capital Campaign is kicking underway again and we’ll be working hand in hand with our dedicated and tireless Capital Campaign Chair, Cllr Mohamedu Jones in generating more revenues. Our goal for the next two years are 10 Hall of Famers, 10 Gold Club and 5 Life Timers. At the upcoming board meeting, we will be launching the “Every Alumnus, An Annual $25 Giver” - this is where all of us and each of us can participate. By Convention 2023, we want 200 Spartans to be a $25 Annual Giver. Leading by example, all National Officers will be a $25 Annual Giver at the October board meeting. We are calling all board members to meet this challenge by October. You can only ask your chapter members to be $25 Annual Giver if you are. I promise to never ask you to do anything that I would not do myself.
  • National Chair Chapter Roundtable - in order to interact more and strengthen bond with members, each National Officer will be assigned to a chapter attending meeting, remotely. As National Chair, I will interact with chapters quarterly.
  • We will continue support for scholarships, and other academic programs at our Alma Mater. We will also explore sister schools relationship that way our kids can interact with other classes in the US virtually.
  • Transparency and Accountability - this is a hallmark of our association and we will meet or surpass this expectation.

Let’s reimagine our association and remake it. Let the sweet music of our voices swell the chorus in the air that We Are Spartans, We Are Back, We are Ready and We Can. I thank you.
