Thank you brothers of Mu Gamma Gamma Chapter for allowing me the privilege to serve as your delegate and represent the chapter at the 71st Grand Conclave. The personal highlight for me came when I was presented my 25 year pin by the Grand Basileus. I also met a brother from Brother Ike Easterling’s chapter in Hattiesburg, MS. I sent best regards to him on behalf of the chapter. This 71st Grand Conclave was not only rewarding, but enlightening on the political aspects and dealings of the fraternity. The 72nd Conclave will be held July, 2002 in Charlotte, NC and I encourage you all to attend.

All Conclave reports and documents are on file for your review. If you have any specific questions concerning this report, please feel free to contact me.

 Fraternally yours,

Brother Arthur Blake
