84th Grand Chapter Meeting & Conclave Social Schedule
July 27, 2019 - August 1, 2019
From July 30-August 4, more than 10,000 members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity – representing 700 undergraduate and alumni chapters in the United States – will convene in Philadelphia, the location of the organization’s International Headquarters for the organization’s 84th Grand Chapter Meeting and Conclave.
With a host of public events planned that help empower Philadelphia’s communities and connect local leaders and businesses to growth opportunities, I believe the convention may be of interest to you for coverage. Two events in particular offer great visuals and interview opportunities – along with highlighting the community impact that conventions such as this have when they come to Philadelphia:
- Saturday, July 27, 10am-3pm: Kappa Conclave Health Fair & Community Service Event. Held at the School District of Philadelphia’s main building (440 North Broad Street), the event will include free health screenings, cooking demonstrations, and school backpack giveaways.
- Saturday, August 3 at noon: Kappa Philly Fest. Held at Thomas Plaine Plaza (1401 JFK Blvd) across from City Hall, this outdoor community festival will feature food trucks, live entertainment, visual artists, and much more.
You can see the full lineup of events here.
Founded in 1911, Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity Inc. has more than 150,000 members worldwide and 700-plus college and alumni chapters. The Fraternity established the Philadelphia (PA) Alumni Chapter on May 25, 1922. It was the third alumni chapter established in the eastern corridor, and the second city to accommodate both a Greek letter and alumni chapter. Nationally, the fraternity is highly regarded for a wide variety of programs that benefit the communities of its members. The services aid children, families and others through the provision of economic services, youth guidance and merit, need-based college scholarships and much more.
On behalf of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) – the organization responsible for helping bring the 84th Grand Chapter Meeting and Conclave – I am happy to connect you to Kappa Alpha Psi leadership for more information.
