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. The Burlington-Camden (NJ) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., affectionately known as the “Strong Arm” Chapter is a “Chapter with a Purpose.”  There is an alarm at the gate. We realize that our chapter is needed in our communities, as a beacon of community involvement, political & social action, and leadership.  The great work that we will be performing this fraternal year will continue to be a catalyst of positive change for the men, women, and children that we serve. The Strong Arm Nupes are up to the challenge. This will be a year of celebration as we reflect upon 50 years of service and brotherhood.
