Just as they did during each of their own administrations, our former Alpha Rho Chapter Presidents are out in front, setting the tempo for what's to come! To date, HALF of the roster of living AP Presidents have tapped in to provide their take on the significance of our Centennial in January 2024.
More observances will follow as we assemble notes from the remaining 16 former Presidents of the GREAT 38TH ... ALPHA RHO CHAPTER! #APLEADERSHIPMATTERS!
LAST CALL FOR EXCLUSIVE ALPHA RHO LODGING RATES FOR CENTENNIAL WEEKEND — RATES EXPIRE MAY 31!
By APCAA Staff
BROTHERS: Here's your friendly fraternal reminder that even though all RHOads will lead to Atlanta January 5-7, 2024 for our historic CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION, our EXCLUSIVE Alpha Rho Brother's Centennial Weekend hotel reservation block ($179/night) at The Westin Peachtree Plaza will expire on Wednesday, May 31st. Following that date, any remaining stock will be opened to booking by general attendees. Any additional hotel blocks WILL NOT BE at the original $179/night rate, and will be accepted at a first come, first sold basis. All that explanation is to say that Alpha Rho Brothers should book, now ... and avoid the rate increases that will follow May 31st.
Through our exclusive website link featured below you can book or modify your hotel reservations and receive updated information about the events.
As planning stewards for this highly anticipated gathering of some 400-500 Alpha Rho Men from seven decades of Morehouse College life, we have dedicated the past 12 months to careful alignment of experiences and locations that will make the entire Brotherhood proud.
Here's an early overview of how the Alpha Rho masses will move about the city during the weekend. It should be noted that the Centennial Gala and Ecumenical Service are open to AP Brothers and guests, while the Welcome Reception and Town Hall are exclusive to AP Brothers. The Farewell Reception is a separately ticketed event and not included in the weekend packages*.
*Centennial Weekend Package Rates will be announced on June 1, 2023. Atlanta's landmark Westin Peachtree Plaza was named as the host hotel for Alpha Rho Chapter's Centennial Weekend earlier this year. Our Chapter-wide survey of potential attendees was conducted on August 25, 2022, and some 325 responses captured within a 24-hour period helped determine our approximate lodging needs, and drove our negotiating strategy with the hotel. We look forward to seeing you during Centennial Weekend!
Notes on booking:
The exclusive rate of $179 is valid until the entire AP hotel block is filled.
When completing the on-line reservation, simply keep the default setting to "1 guest" in place, regardless of whether there will be a companion in your stay or not.
The booking portal will remain exclusive to Alpha Rho Brothers from December 20, 2022 thru May 31, 2023.
To eliminate any undue financial risk to the APCAA, we will closely monitor booking levels, and will authorize additional blocks in increments of 50/rooms. If you are "wait listed" at the time of booking, please contact email@example.com and we will force book and confirm on your behalf.
Hospitality suite and guest room suite rates will be made available in late Spring 2023. It is highly recommended that at a minimum, a standard room reservation be made within the AP block at this first offering, and later upgraded when those rates have been negotiated.
Local (Atlanta) Brothers can take advantage of private hotel-to-venue executive coach transport included in their hotel bookings. (A separate transport fee will be levied for transient passengers who are not host hotel registrants).
Modifications/cancellations can be made as late as 3 days prior to check-in with no penalty
