The Brothers from the State of Georgia followed suit with its Virtual Brotherhood Development Day, Hosted by Georgia State Director, Bro. Monaleto C. Irby. The webinar kicked off on Friday, October 9th with a Robert’s Rules of Order/Parliamentary Procedures presentation facilitated by International Parliamentarian, Bro. Edwin K. Miles.

The Development Day reconvened on Saturday, October 10 with greetings from Bro. Irby, newly elected Southern Regional Director, Dr. Bro. Errick Farmer, and International First Vice President, Bro. Chris Rey. Bro. Rey, then presented during a general session on Effective Chapter Management, which covered leadership selection, membership intake, and succession planning.
