Greetings Brothers of the Mighty Seventh District and Visiting Brothers throughout Omega!

The 87th Seventh District Meeting registration is OFFICIALLY OPEN!

On behalf of the Seventh District Executive Council, Iota Upsilon and Sigma Alpha Alpha Chapters, we welcome you and your chapter delegation to Biloxi, Mississippi, April 4th – 7th, 2024

As the Marshal of the 2024 District Meeting, let me be the first to say “WELCOME TO THE QOAST.” As some of you know our chapter has been on a long journey to “FINALLY” have the brothers here and showcase the love and hospitality that is Mississippi and the Gulf Coast as the “playground of the South.”

The agenda is full of relevant discussion points designed to educate and uplift the brotherhood and give prosperity to our great fraternity. There will be social action activities and a spotlight on health awareness, bringing forth necessary information to foster healthy communities across the country. The host Chapter has put together an array of events and activities to help ensure brothers have a great time including a Golf Tournament, Brotherhood Night, Cook-Owt, and evening socials. Tickets for Quette Registration, golf, and ad booklet purchases can be found at https://omegaseventhdistrict2024.my.canva.site

The brothers of Iota Upsilon Chapter,are ready to work and assist you during your time at the meeting. In addition, there are several more neighboring Chapters ready to help guarantee the 87th Seventh District Meeting is successful, again welcome to Biloxi!

The Seventh District Meeting is the one Omega Gathering, where the greatest number of shining minds assemble to plan, listen, work and celebrate. This is what makes us MIGHTY within the BROTHERHOOD that is Omega. Whether you’ve been to ten District Meetings, or this is your first experience, I hope you will discover the power of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and build deeper connections with brothers from around the Seventh District.

We promise to make it worth your while. Again, I am pleased to welcome you to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the City of Biloxi in particular. I hope that each and every one of you enjoy all that the QOAST has to offer.

Let me warn you, if this is your first time on the QOAST, you are about to experience a city and a region that places hospitality at the top of its list.

Fraternally,

Brian Barkley, PhD
Seventh District Marshal
