Greetings my Fellow Amirians and AIDU Family, hope all is well with you and yours.
Our AIDU 25th Bi-Annual Convention is now in the history book.
Let me first on behalf of the AIDU Family extend a huge congratulations and thanks to the Amiri Umunna Association of Oregon and SW Washington President Prince Kenneth Ogbeama and all the members of the Oregon Chapter for organizing and executing one of the best conventions if not the best in the history of AIDU. The Oregon chapter put on a great convention, and in the process AIDU raised over $20,000 ( Donation and Pledges) of which more than $12,000 has already been deposited in the AIDU Account by the Treasurer.
As you all know the Election was conducted during the Legislative Meeting and this is the new look AIDU Executive Body;
National President- Dr. Vitalis Ogbeama Sr.

On behalf of the new Executive I extend our collective gratitude and honor for giving us the opportunity to serve and call on all AIDU members and Amirians to renew their sacred commitment to keep on the course of making AMIRI a livable place for all.
Our 2021 Convention Venue was not reached to conclusion during our Legislative Meeting but the proposal for the 2021 venue includes, New Orleans, North/South Carolina, and Maryland/DC Chapters. The Executive will be working with these three Chapters to select the host Chapter and let the Union know as soon as possible.
Finally, the bank is still open for those our brothers and sisters who were unable to make the convention, please, please send your dues and donation to our Treasurer Mrs. Queen Duru or to my humble self. No amount is too little, Amiri needs your help.

Our new Financial Secretary is working on putting our Financial records up to date and will be sending it out as soon as it is available.
