RALEIGH, North Carolina – The Delta Lambda chapter of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, Inc. at Campbell University hosted the Winter Conclave 2016 for the Atlantic Province of the fraternity in Raleigh, North Carolina. The three day meeting took place on Jan. 22-24 and was held at Campbell University’s Norman A. Wiggins School of Law. It was the largest winter conclave in province history.
Xanthe Andrews, second year student pharmacist, served as the province assembly planning chair and was responsible for organizing the event that attracted 350 graduate and collegiate Kappa Psi brothers to the Raleigh area.
“It is our regional meeting where we meet for business. Each chapter gives a status report, we discuss legislation for chapters, and we elect new officers for the province,” shared Andrews.
Offering continuing education opportunities, reunion and fellowship events, and a group outing to a Carolina Hurricanes game, the Delta Lambda chapter worked hard to ensure this event was a way to foster brotherhood in addition to addressing the administrative needs of the Atlantic Province.
Jordan Ballou, PharmD ’15, was elected as Satrap [acts as president] of the province for the next calendar year. The Buies Creek Graduate Chapter was awarded the Man Mile, which signifies the chapter with the most graduate brothers in attendance at each province meeting.
The Atlantic Province is made up of ten chapters: Theta of Virginia Commonwealth University, Gamma Xi of the University of South Carolina, Epsilon Zeta of East Tennessee State University, Beta Xi of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Gamma Phi of the University of Georgia, Epsilon Phi of South University, Delta Lambda of Campbell University, Epsilon Delta of Appalachian College of Pharmacy, Zeta Xi of South College, and Gamma Psi of Mercer University.
