My Dear Sorors and Amicae of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Eastern Region:
It is indeed a pleasure and a distinct honor as your Eastern Regional Director to cordially invite you to the 73rd Eastern Regional Leadership Conference hosted in beautiful, historic Norfolk, Virginia, home of the world’s largest Naval Base! Serving our great sisterhood under the august
leadership of our International Grand Basileus, Dr. Mary Breaux Wright, with her inspiring theme “Building on the Principles of Zeta While Blazing New Paths” is a tremendous honor and awesome opportunity to lead the Eastern Region to even higher heights.

This conference will do just that!!

My mission is to ensure that the Eastern Region will effectively serve our sisterhood, communities and indeed our world from a position of substantial and sustained power and influence. Our laudable goals, set by my most impressive Regional Leadership Team, will be actualized through enhanced Z-HOPE Projects; r e n e w e d commitment and increased support for long-term partnerships and new, innovative initiatives that challenge and inspire personal and professional growth and development.

Conference attendance and participation in the many business sessions, professional workshops, inspirational social and fellowship functions; including the very popular Eastern Region Chapter Basilei Council Institute; Undergraduate Career Leadership Empowerment Summit, more fully integrated Zeta and Amicae Programming; 70th Amicae Auxiliary Anniversary; and other empowering events to include an inaugural Eastern Regional Doves Club Induction, and a very special Life Members 70th Anniversary Dinner Cruise open to all conference registrants on a first come-first served basis; and our Blue Hat Society has a new twist! This is just the beginning of all the Eastern Region has to offer. And, it is a fantastic place to start and you do not want to miss a minute of it! Highlights of the events and opportunities to learn, share, network and grow are included on the next several pages. Read them once, maybe twice, and then register immediately to reserve your space. This is one conference you do not want to miss!!

The Eastern Region of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is here to play a bigger game – on a bigger stage! To my honorable International Grand Basileus, my awesome State Directors, dedicated Regional Executive Board Members, my phenomenal Regional Leadership Team, inspiring Sorors and Auxiliaries – with the tremendous support and commitment of the staffs at Hilton The Main and the Norfolk Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, I extend to each of you this special invitation. Receive and embrace it with my wish and desire to personally meet, greet and welcome each of you to the 73rd Eastern Regional Leadership Conference. Thank you so very much and welcome to the 73rd Eastern Regional Leadership Conference!

Synergize with the Eastern Region…Where It All Began!!

With sisterly love and
sincere appreciation, I am

T. Diane Surgeon, Esq. - Eastern Regional Director
