Greetings Brothers of the Great Western Province,
Welcome to the Spring 2019 Pre-Province Council edition of the Pacific Reporter.
We eagerly look forward to welcoming you to the 72nd Western Province in San Diego, CA. The Brothers of the Delta Epsilon and San Diego (CA) Alumni Chapters, along with the San Diego Silhouettes, have been hard at work preparing for a Province Council you will not want to miss.
With its mild climate and tremendous entertainment options, San Diego has something to offer every taste and budget. The host hotel, Double Tree by Hilton - Mission Valley is a fantastic hotel with a trolley stop right in front of the hotel. You will be only steps away from all San Diego has to offer.
With the 84th Grand Chapter Meeting right around the corner, we have a full agenda planned for the 72nd Western Province Council. I am really excited about the first ever Undergraduate Forum that will take place on Friday afternoon. The purpose of The Undergraduate Forum is to provide our Undergraduate Brothers with tools to maximize their collegiate experience. They will be provided with information and skills needed to successfully receive internships, improve interviewing skills, attend study abroad programs, obtain full time employment, and attend graduate school.
We've been fortunate to once again partner with AHF (AIDS Healthcare Foundation) and Union Bank for the 72nd Western Province Council. Their support is most appreciated, and we value our partnership.
Please support our partners. We also want to thank MRP for their support in providing resource material for the Senior Kappa Lounge.
All roads lead to Philadelphia. Plans are underway to ensure your experience at the 84th Grand Chapter Meeting will be long remembered. Make plans to join us in the "City of Brotherly Love". The 84th Grand Chapter Meeting will convene July 20 - August 4, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA.
We eagerly look forward to 2021 when the Gamma Iota, Phoenix (AZ) Alumni Chapters, and the Western Province will host the 85th Grand Chapter Meeting. We look forward to welcoming our Brothers to the West. Additional information is forthcoming.
Finally, Kudos to Brother Jeffery Brown for an outstanding job in reviving the dormant Pacific Reporter.
Keep Achievement in the forefront Nupes.
Yours in the Bond,
Gilbert D. “Gil” Brown, III

Brother Cecil Patterson said he dealt with the “fishbowl syndrome” as the first black judge appointed to the Maricopa County Superior Court, the first black lawyer in the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the state’s first black appeals court judge. “I had five major jobs in 32 years of practice, and every job I was the first and only African-American in the job. And that lasted a long time.”
