A Message From the Chapter Polemarch

Greetings

Welcome to the official website and virtual home of the Bowie/Mitchellville (MD) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated (BMAC). Since our chartering in 2003 our mantra has been “Keeping the Dream Alive”. What “DREAM” you ask? it is the dream of ACHIEVEMENT in every field of human endeavor. It is the dream of inspiring service in the public’s interest. It is the dream of assisting the aims and purposes of colleges and universities. It is the dream of promoting the spiritual, social, intellectual and moral welfare of it’s members. It is the dream of uniting college men of culture, patriotism, and honor in a bond of fraternity.

Located in the largest municipality in Prince George’s County; we proudly serve our community through mentor ship programs dedicated to inspiring young men. We also grant yearly scholarships, engage in social action activities to improve our neighborhoods, and cultivate relationships with city and county leaders to impact change for the greater good.

BMAC is a growing chapter dedicated to building a bond amongst each member. Here at BMAC we focus on being boys first! If you are in the area and looking for a chapter, stop by and pay us a visit. Thank you for visiting our website and follow us on our social media accounts @bmacnupes on Instagram and BMACNupes on Facebook to be informed of our upcoming events.
Sincerely,

Hugene T Fields, MBA
9th Chapter Polemarch

History of Our Chapter

In June of 2003, brothers James Hinkle and Charles Exum were playing golf when they formed an idea to start an Alumni Chapter in Prince Georges County. They discussed the growing number of brothers moving to the Bowie/Mitchellville MD area. According to the 2000 census, Prince Georges County, Maryland is the wealthiest county in the nation with an African-American majority.


The climate was right for a chapter to service the needs of these brothers moving into the Bowie/Mitchellville area. In addition, there was enormous interest to start an Alumni Chapter for brothers who had no prior affiliation with an Alumni Chapter but were looking to join a chapter close to home.


Charles Exum contacted Anthony B. Hill, Eastern Province Polemarch, who authorized him to take the preliminary steps to establish a chapter. As an initial requirement, the Grand Chapter mandated there be at least 12 Brothers in good financial standing. To meet this minimum requirement, the names of these 12 Brothers were submitted to International Headquarters:

The petition was submitted along with required information to Grand Chapter. As our Lord would allow, on September 3, 2003 The Grand Board of Directors officially approved the establishment of the Bowie-Mitchellville (MD) Alumni Chapter. The formal chartering ceremony took place on October 4, 2003 with the incoming Povince Polemach Rufus F. Clanzy presiding over the ceremony. Other Kappa dignitaries in attendance were: Elder Watson Diggs Awardee Winfred Mundle and Province Vice Polemarch, John T. Lanier. Charles Exum was installed as the 1st Polemarch.
