The annual event gathers SC District's, sometimes referred as SC Alpha, thirty-two College and Alumni chapters from across the state to participate in competitions, symposiums, business sessions, and fellowship events for the upcoming year. The Conference's Theme is "SC Alpha: Developing Our Community Through Empowerment, Advocacy & Service!". The District conference was last held in Greenville in 2010.
This year is the celebration of the 54th year of Alpha Phi Alpha in South Carolina which began with Greenville-native Bro. Luke H. Chatman, as the first SC State Director of Alpha. District and Local Leadership are planning a weekend of fellowship and celebration along with the Business of Alpha.
"We are proud to again host this event in Greenville", says Kynan Robinson, Chairman of the Local Planning Committee, which includes chapters from Clemson, Anderson, Spartanburg, and Rock Hill. "The Greenville area is a great place to host this event". This year's conference will include a Public Program, a slate of ladies activities, Step Show, Miss Black & Gold Pageant and Conference-ending Award Program, where winners of district competitions will be announced.
This conference is expected to have more than 200 delegates with their families in attendance and there will be several public events on Friday and Saturday.
