Less Than 30 Days to Go .. and the Largest Second District Conference Ever

Second District Conference Planning Committee at Work
In one month, the gleaming new Washington National Harbor will be packed with men wearing those famous colors, Royal Purple and Old Gold. They will come from Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and other parts of Maryland for the 64th Second District Conference of Omega Psi Phi.

With fewer than 30 days left, the registration numbers have already surpassed any previous District Conference and they are still counting, according to Brother Edward High, District Marshal in charge of conference logistics.

Omega men interested in registering can do so by going here: Second District web site

While Omega men will be in town for business and a robust social action agenda, they will also take the off-time to enjoy the resort venue and to mix with friends of the Fraternity with an array of social events that are now being promoted. From the highly anticipated "March Down" step show competition to evening receptions to a theater-style brunch to parties and a semi-formal to close out the four-day affair. Gamma Pi chapter, hosting the April 26-29 conference, is planning a dynamic menu of public social events. Tickets can now be purchased online for those events. The lineup:
