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,
including the reigning International Alumni Chapter of the Year.
We are a membership of nearly 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”.
Over the past year, our dedicated members have completed more than 300 community service hours.
Our programs and activities are designed to enrich and transform lives through educational
development, physical and mental health, political and social action, housing and homelessness, and
financial wellness. The Alpha Luau, our annual marquee event, brings together over 800 people to
party with a purpose and raise funds to support our outstanding programs.
During this season of 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.
