Greetings Brothers of the Mighty Seventh District:

We welcome you to Atlanta, GA and our 81st Seventh District Meeting.

Our goal for this meeting is that it enlightens and informs 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 Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel and Convention Center 2450 Galleria Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30339 which a short walk to the new SunTrust Baseball Park and Battery Entertainment District were several of our social activities will take place. More on these activities later.

Also, ETA Omega Chapter’s Quette’s have planned a great week for your Quette as well.

We are excited about this meeting which leads us into the next Conclave where with our strength and unity we can influence the Leadership of our Great Fraternity.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
