Second District Representatives Message,Greetings My Second District Brethren and Guests. It is an honor and privilege serving as your 34th 2nd District Representative As we. enter the 104 Anniversary Celebration period I have several areas of thoughts for. consideration,Need for Reclamation, On the weekend of October 16 18 2015 I had the pleasure to celebrate 40 years. in Omega at Virginia State University s Homecoming with the members of my line. and those of Brother Kevin Woodhouse line Both of our lines are Nu Psi 1975. pledge lines fall and spring respectively I was truly impressed with the brother. hood the feeling of true friendship and the shear examples of love shown by the. Brothers to the community and to Omega Psi Phi Convinced that we need to work. even harder to get more or our Brothers reclaimed we as a Fraternity are missing out on the resources they could provide. to help us solve some of our vast problems We also must recognize that we have to provide services and programs to in. spire Brothers to be financial Our leadership team and I will be working hard to ensure we make significant strides in this. Need for Selection in MSP, From recent experiences I have become aware that we have significant areas to improve our Membership Selection. Process Omega is not meant for everyone and we need to make sure the individuals we accept into our membership are. motivated to do what it takes to make Omega better and NOT to use Omega as an entitlement opportunity In other words. we need members that do not ask what Omega can do for them but what they can do for society as members of Omega. Need for Unity in the Community, Having had the opportunity to sit in the reserved section for the 2015 Million Man March I was impressed by the family. atmosphere and by all of the speakers of color Some Brothers have been upset that we haven t in their opinion been as. active in social issues as we should it is my belief that we can only be successful as citizens of this universe if we con. tinually strive to work together as a community As mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12 12 17 We are all of the one body but. represent different important parts,Need for Violence Prevention.
We as a Fraternity have been spending too much time and resources resolving issues that can only do harm to our great. Fraternity We may not all agree on the steps of required training across the Fraternity but the 2nd District is moving. forward beginning this Fall to deliver required training to the brotherhood both financial and un financial on the issue of. Violence Prevention Violence of any form is never accepted or condoned by Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. You may not agree with everything as previously stated but we must to be an Army of one and work to make this. Fraternity greater because you are a member May GOD Bless You All.
