Greetings Brothers of the Mighty Seventh District:

We welcome you to Birmingham and our 82nd Seventh District Meeting. Our goal for this meeting is to enlighten and inform those attending of the tremendous efforts and activities you have performed in your respective states, and of your outreach and uplift in our communities.

From the attached tentative agenda, you will see the business at hand including the various presentations, dialogue opportunities, community service projects and most importantly fellowship with familiar brothers and making new fraternal bonds.

The location for our meeting is the intimate and accommodating Sheraton Birmingham Hotel, located at 1201 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd N, Birmingham, Alabama 35203. The Sheraton is centrally located in downtown Birmingham and is a short walk to the Uptown Entertainment District the site of several of our meeting’s social activities. More on these activities later.

Also, Alpha Phi Chapter’s Quettes have planned a great week for your Quette as well.

The Seventh District App will be used to keep you updated on the meeting’s agenda and any changes to scheduled events. If you have not already downloaded the Seventh District App you can download it at: https://7dques.com

Updates will be provided as we get closer to the meeting.
