A Message From the Chapter Polemarch


As the 10th Polemarch of the Bowie/Mitchellville (MD) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated (BMAC), I want to welcome and thank you for visiting our site.  BMAC has been serving its members and the greater Bowie/Mitchellville area since 2003.

If you are a Brother looking for a chapter-home your search has ended, BMAC is for you!  Our Reclamation Chairman is waiting to hear from you.  We believe in not only doing the work of Kappa but also in fellowshipping with each other whenever possible.  We believe that our Bond lightens the work and makes us stronger as a chapter, BMAC Strong to be exact.

Parents, we believe we have one of the strongest mentoring programs (Kappa League) in the Eastern Province.  It is a robust program that is a combination of guest speakers, hands-on activities, community service, field trips and contests such as our annual Kappa League Quiz Bowl.  In addition, in conjunction with our charitable foundation, the Bowie-Mitchellville Diamond Foundation, we offer college scholarships and awards for college-bound Seniors.  Please view our Kappa League page and contact our Kappa League chairman if you are interested registering your son.

If you are just curious about our Chapter, you will find that BMAC offers and participates in a robust set of social and community service activities such as toy drives, our Adopt-a-Highway program on Route 450 near Bowie High School, back to school “dap” days, virtual workshops and more.  We are always open to new partnerships so feel free to reach out to us with your ideas and proposals. You can see more of what we do on Facebook and Instagram.

If you are interested in membership, as a 2010 BMAC initiate, I cannot speak more highly of the Chapter as the place to start your journey.  In accordance, with the guidelines set forth by Grand Chapter, we provide a program that facilitates learning, friendship and service.  If you are interested contact our intake chairman using the form on our Membership page.

The 10th Administration is excited to follow the path of excellence and ACHIEVEMENT set by previous administrations.  We look forward to our opportunity to brighten the “Beacon of the East”.

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.
