Our theme for 2021’s Founders’ Day conference is Take Flight with Brotherhood on B.I.S.S. Airways. This year’s conference marks our ninth Founders’ Day Conference and eight years of brotherhood, integrity, scholarship, and service. Director of Convention Services, Coordinator Christopher B. Whitsett (EZ, Fall ’15), has planned a safe and socially distanced conference for Brotherhood.

We will have complimentary matte black masks and hand sanitizer available throughout the entire conference as well as for our new membership registration package. The package includes a long-sleeve premium cotton royal blue shirt, with our Fraternity’s name on the chest and our Founding year on the back, a limited edition screen-print shoe-string backpack with our Fraternity’s name in bold silver lettering, and lastly a complimentary set of pilot wings for the nostalgia!

Most importantly, we have partned with the grassroots organization He Is Valuable (H.I.V.). The mission of He Is Valuable (H.I.V.) is to identify, reinforce, and celebrate Black Queer Men and their communities. This organization’s mission is near and dear to our mission, “…to enhance and progress the lifestyle experiences of collegiate and professional men” as well as our philanthropic goal to advocate for men living with HIV/AIDS and to help fight the stigma that HIV/AIDS has. All of our meetings and events with be at the H.I.V. Headquarters, and we are profusely thankful for them allowing us to use their space to host our meetings, programs, and events. Lastly, we are announcing that we are donating $200.00 to H.I.V. as a thank you for allowing us to host our events in their space.
