Join the celebration of brotherhood at the 84th Grand Conclave of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity in Tampa, Florida. Don’t miss this event!

Atlanta, GA – Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated   is proud to announce that it will host its 84th Conclave in Tampa   Florida, from June 27 to July 2. This highly anticipated event will   bring together thousands of fraternity members, dignitaries,   celebrities, and community leaders for a time of fellowship,   development, and community service with a focus on activism, philanthropic efforts, youth mentoring,  recognizing the fine arts, health & wellness, and celebrating decades of social action. The conclave serves as Omega Psi Phi’s biennial convention, designed to address fraternity business, and  plan the future direction of the organization. For this year’s conclave, due to the unique social and  political times we are in, the primary purpose of the gathering has been expanded, and the 84th Grand  Conclave has been labelled as a “Conclave with a Purpose”. 

Our goal in Tampa is to reassert our leadership as Omega men by providing a forum where ideas,  activities, and tools to shape a more equitable future on both the local and national levels can be  discussed, leveraged, and amplified. The event will offer a plethora of activities including, but not limited  to: 

• Community Forum: To educate and empower the community by increasing understanding of  how legal/legislative changes, both proposed and implemented, impact their lives. • Voter Registration Education and Mobilization: A state-wide voter registration initiative has  been implemented focused on individuals who have been historically underrepresented. • Book Drive: Collect and distribute books focused on African American history and culture  through small libraries set up in several urban communities and through relationships with local  organizations, schools, and businesses.

• Silent March and Rally: A visible and symbolic effort intended to demonstrate disapproval of  policies implemented that limit civic engagement, negatively impact equity, and alter the  accuracy of the historical record. 

Our intention in Tampa is to be visible, vocal, and deliberate in communicating and demonstrating our  position as community leaders and offer strategies to make a change.
