Fraternity Strategic Plan
This Strategic Plan represents the Mission, Vision, Goals, Strategies and Action Plans of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. This plan outlines the process that this organization will utilize to continue to develop tomorrow’s leaders, promote brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities.
The National Board of Directors of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated realizes that as this great organization embarks upon its Centennial Celebration, it is important that the entire brotherhood stops and assesses what the organization is today and where it is going in the future. It is fully realized that in order to assure that Alpha continues to be the premiere organization for “the better making of men,” the organization must continue to refine its processes and respond to the internal and external forces that are ever present within and around it. The foundation for this plan was developed during a Retreat of the National Board of Directors in Baltimore, Maryland on May 5-6, 2006. In attendance were all sitting board members, several committee chairmen, Regional Executive Directors and Foundation Chairmen. The Organization Effectiveness Committee under the leadership of Brother Dr. Zollie Stevenson, Jr. facilitated the retreat.
