Countdown to the Southern Regional Conference
Sigmas gather for the 2012 State Conference in Anniston/Oxford !Brothers of Phi Beta Sigma from all over Alabama, as well as some neighboring states, came to Oxford, Alabama, March 9-11, 2012 for the annual Sigma State Conference of Alabama, hosted this year by the Zeta Mu Sigma Chapter, Pi Kappa Chapter (JSU) and Epsilon Tau Chapter (Talladega College). A special treat at this Conference was the opportunity to spend time through the whole weekend with our Honorable Brother Carter Womack, 27th/29th International Fraternity President, who was the keynote speaker at the Awards Luncheon. Participating Chapters, in addition to the host chapters, included Beta Epsilon Sigma (Huntsville) , Alpha Eta Sigma (Montgomery), Tau Sigma (Birmingham), Beta Pi Sigma (Tuscaloosa), Beta Sigma Sigma (Mobile), Gamma Sigma (Tuskegee), Alpha Chi Sigma (Dothan), Kappa Lambda Sigma (Marion), Zeta Upsilon Sigma (Jackson), Epsilon Theta Sigma (Selma), Alpha Alpha Lambda (Troy), Alpha Sigma Alpha (UAH), Beta Beta Alpha (UNA), Beta Kappa (Tuskegee U), Gamma Beta (ASU), Gamma Epsilon (Ala A&M), and Kappa Zeta (Auburn). The active Chapters absent from the State Conference were Eta Mu Sigma, Alpha Psi Alpha, Sigma, Epsilon Rho, Gamma Chi, Theta Delta, and Eta Epsilon. Absent chapters are urged to get in touch with their advising alumni chapter or state officers for important information coming from this year's State Conference ! !
Sigmas respond to the Tornado Disaster !Phi Beta Sigma immediately involved itself to serve our fellow humanity following the devastation brought about by tornados on Wednesday, April 27, 2011. The Sigmas of Birmingham gathered at the Sigma House to coordinate their plan of action and reported to support sites to help provide for the victims. Our Frats came from Huntsville and from Anniston to join in the relief efforts. Sigmas at the University of Alabama, despite the closing of their university, remained in town to do whatever they could to help their community endure through the crises of the aftermath of destruction. As far as it is known, no Brothers of the Fraternity were injured or lost in Alabama; thanks be to God. Offers of assistance and support have been received from Brothers of Phi Beta Sigma from out-of-state, for which we are most grateful. Chapters are asked to share news of needs and of volunteer efforts during the difficult ordeal that our state is facing. Brothers are also called upon to associate their Facebook account with the State of Alabama Phi Beta Sigma page for the sake of faster communication and consultation.
