It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the website for the Mighty Eastern Region of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. In over 100 years of of existence, there have been 26 other men to serve in this capacity and I am blessed to be able to serve this region as its 27th Regional Director.
The Eastern Region is the birthplace of this wondrous band. It was on the campus of Howard University on January 9, 1914 that three dynamic collegiate men saw fit for an organization with higher ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service to be born.
The Eastern Region is proud to have chapter from Virginia up to Maine, including the countries of Germany, U.S. Virgin Islands, Switzerland, Liberia, Nigeria, and Ghana.
Yours in Service,
Brother JR Reeves, 27th Eastern Region Director
The program focuses on providing a variety of services to alumni and collegiate members of the Fraternity, which in turn translates to services to local communities. In-house programs include providing scholarships, conferences, college fairs, mentoring and tutoring at local, regional and national levels.
Formed in 1934, the Social Action program was conceived by Bro. Elmo M. Anderson to focus on improving the general wellbeing of disenfranchised people. The mission of the International Social Action Program is to encourage social, political and philanthropic leadership which strengthens our respective communities.
BIGGER & BETTER BUSINESS
Bigger and Better Business became the first national program of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. It was first introduced at the Tenth Anniversary Conclave, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (December 1924). When Bigger and Better Business was adopted as a national program, special emphasis was placed on encouraging and promoting Negro businesses.
