The International Leadership Conference Imprints Stellar Impact
& Uplift On the Cincinnati, Ohio Community!
Atlanta, GA (August 14, 2017) The International Leadership Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio was a stellar success from beginning to end with thousands of members from across the nation convening for the business of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated. Deserved congratulations are extended to the tireless Committee under the dedicated leadership of Dr. David Marion, First Vice Grand Basileus. A deliberate agenda was set for the business of the Fraternity and phenomenal standing room only public forums were held to educate, empower and uplift the community. Omega believes in leaving cities better than they found them. Omega Life Membership invested $25K to provide the opportunity for 125 young men to attend the Youth Leadership Conference where they were taught principles of manhood and given critical tools to ensure their success at every level of life. Many collegiate members of the Fraternity are stellar leaders on their college campuses nationwide and received $141K in scholarships from the Omega Life Membership for scholastic excellence. Gifted students from the twelve Districts participated in the Talent Hunt Demonstration and were each gifted $1000. The Fraternity donated 1000 books to the Children's Hospital of Cincinnati. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the Boys and Girls Club both received a $2500 gift for their programmatic initiatives. Because education is a significant mandate of Omega, Wilberforce University and Central State University both received a $5000 gift of support. Omega contributed $10K to West Virginia State University and the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation for Boys Camp received a $10K contribution. Members of the Fraternity donated manpower to the Freestore Foodbank and a Health Fair and Health Screening was also open to the public. Antonio F. Knox, Sr., 40th Grand Basileus stated, "The Leadership Conference was so impactful and Omega believes in leaving communities better than we found them. We are proud to assist the collegiate careers of talented students, institutions of higher learning and organizations that will impact communities for years to come! Congratulations to the Committee for an excellent Conference! We Are One!"

Since its humble beginnings on the Howard University campus, the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity continues to be on the front line, leveraging its power, influence and more than 100 years of commitment to the uplift of our people and our communities.
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was founded on November 17, 1911, at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and is the first international fraternal organization to be founded on the campus of a historically black college.
