In August President Michael Belick and Vice President Kyle Leonard traveled to John Hopkins university for the annual Alpha Delta Convention. They spent the weekend attending seminars, workshops, and evening events. At the award ceremony they received the highly coveted E.O Blackman, Chapter of Excellence Award - a major goal and accomplishment since the re-founding in 2008. In addition the Washington Chapter took home the award for best philanthropy and had nine members place in the ADP literary competition. Michael and Kyle were accompanied by local Baltimore alum Len Funk a Washington Alpha Delt class of 64'.
