Greetings on behalf of the members of the Beta Nu Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. It is
truly an honor and pleasure to welcome you to the official website of this award-winning chapter.
We are a membership of more than 200 diverse, talented, and college-educated men who are committed to
the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service. Chartered on August 1, 1939, the Beta Nu Lambda Chapter
(BNL) has diligently served Charlotte, North Carolina, and surrounding areas for over 80 years. We take pride in
being the “Guardians of the Queen City”.
Our programs and activities are designed to enrich and transform lives in five core areas:
1.) Educational Development
2.) Political and Social Action
3.) Physical and Mental Health
4.) Housing and Homelessness
5.) Financial Wellness
Despite ongoing health and societal concerns, we are steadfast in our mission to be community
advocates and agents of change and progress. As a way to expand our service footprint and to deepen our
level of impact, we are excited to grow our established community partnerships and welcome new
collaborations that align with our purpose and program focus.
As President of the Beta Nu Lambda Chapter, I invite all locally based Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha to join us at
a monthly chapter meeting or any chapter events. If you are looking for a chapter home, there is always a
place for you in the 156th House of Alpha. Your gifts and talents are welcomed and are valuable to ensure
that we continue to deliver programs that strengthen and uplift our community.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will take some time to browse our pages, and we
encourage you to frequently check our website to learn about our upcoming events and program initiatives.
We invite you to like and follow our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Feel
