2013 Bedford V. Lawson Oratorical Theme:
W.E.B. Dubois on the launch of his groundbreaking 1903 Treatise. The Souls of Black Folk stated "For the problem of the 20th century is the problem of the color line..." 100 years later what is the problem of the 21st century and how should Alpha respond?"
2013 Hobart Jarrett Debate Competition Theme:
A government has the obligation to lessen the economic gap between it's rich and poor citizens.
2011 Leadership Development Institute theme:
The National Leadership Development Institute (LDI) theme for 2011 is
"Preparing the Next Generation Leaders of Tomorrow: TODAY!"
All levels of the fraternity, especially the regional institutes, should use this theme in program development, marketing, etc. We look forward to another successful year of developing and enhancing the leadership skills of our high school males. In alignment with General President Mason's platform on "Our Boys, Our Responsibility, Our Future: From the High Chair to Higher Education", we hope through the Regional Leadership Development Institutes to make good leaders.
