Council of Elders (Baraza) since 2019. Our Ras asked me to take the seat once held by the Late Great David Nelson and I was honored to do so.
As a current member of the Baraza I have worked with a dedicated team to revise our fraternal constitution, by-laws and standard operating procedures. If provided with an opportunity to continue to serve I have two specific goals:
1.Develop an annual fund raiser for the fraternity.
2.Develop an annual brotherhood retreat.
I believe in transformational Restorative leadership. This is leadership that seeks to bring out the best qualities in others through a collaborative approach. I pledge to hold myself and others accountable by setting the example, providing clear expectations and working through inevitable conflict with brotherly love.
