The President's Corner:

As we proceed through our 2001 year, let me reflect for a moment of our accomplishments in 2000 and the challenges yet ahead in 2001!

2000 was a very good year for the Durham Chapter:

My utmost thanks and appreciation goes out to each of you, for the morale and physical support provided to me as your Chapter President.

I commit to serve the Chapter to the best of my God given abilities. I only ask that each of you lend your unrelenting support as we move forward into the rest of our Program year.

We have several key events ahead of us, Touring Choir Concert and May Commencement.

Our major challenge remains to increase our membership base. It is widely known that there are approximately 6,000 known Alumni in Durham and in our surrounding community.

I call upon you to devote your Time, Resources and Talents in support of our Chapter's efforts for the coming year.

Even more important, we need your Alumni support to ensure the stable operation of our Chapter. Visit our web site   at: http://Durham_Eagles.tripod.com and keep up with the Chapter activities!

Send me your comments at: rsmith@adsystech-nc.com or jmbrds@acninc.net.

Pledge to recommit yourself and support the Chapter and NCCU.

The program is dedicated to Julius Chambers, our out-going Chancellor.

We cordially invite you to attend this concert, which is free and open to the public. DONATIONS ARE ACCEPTED ALL YEAR LONG!


The Chapter's bloodline is its FINANCIAL membership base. Membership dues underpin our operating expenses, i.e., newsletter, meeting facilities.

The Membership Committee is again determined to increase our financial membership for the 2000-2001 year. The membership period covers July 1st through June 30th of each year.

Pay your membership dues today. A membership form is attached hereto for your convenience.

"Hats off to Bobbie, the Durham Chapter and friends of NCCU, for a job well done"! Let's do it again in 2001!
