Meet the Chapter

A Brief History

The Burlington-Camden (NJ) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. received its charter on Saturday, April 12, 1969. The charter was presented by Brother Lancelot Tynes 13th Northeastern Province Polemarch. A formal banquet was held at the Rickshaw Inn in Cherry Hill, New Jersey following the chartering ceremony. It should be noted that one of our illustrious founders of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Dr. Byron K. Armstrong, was a charter member of the Burlington-Camden Alumni Chapter. Brother Duck had obtained his signature for the petition while attending the 55th Grand Chapter Meeting in Baltimore. At that time, Brother Armstrong resided in Camden, New Jersey, but due to illness, was confined to a wheelchair.

Polemarch's Message

 As Polemarch of the Burlington-Camden Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., I would like to welcome you to our website. Congratulations to the Brothers of The Burlington-Camden Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. on receiving “Large Chapter of the Year” for 2019-2020.  The Burlington-Camden (NJ) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., affectionately known as the “Strong Arm” Chapter, is a “Chapter that Endures.”  Even during a worldwide pandemic that has affected everyone and everything, the Strong Arm Chapter still endures.  We realize that the presence of our chapter is needed in our communities as a beacon of light for community involvement, political and social action, and leadership. We will social distance, wear masks, and continue to execute our missions and accomplish our goals. The Strong Arm Nupes get even stronger as we overcome challenges that arise. We are Brother to Brother, Building Bridges.
