The Purpose of Achievement Week

International Achievement Week is a mandated program of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. that was originally designed to promote the study of African American life and history.  National Achievement Week began at the 1920 Grand Conclave in Nashville, TN.  Brother Carter G. Woodson inspired the idea.  In 1927 at Bro. Carter G. Woodson’s urging the fraternity made National Negro Achievement Week an annual observance.  In 1976 this commemoration evolved into Black History Month.  The Achievement Week Program recognizes those individuals at the local and national levels who have made significant contributions toward improving the quality of life for African Americans.

Achievement Week and Recognitions - The Achievement Week and Recognitions Committee shall assist chapter members in the planning and implementation of each National Achievement Week Program. Our Committee shall also assist and coordinate the selection of Brothers and members of our community who should be recognized for noteworthy achievements and may also recommend for recognition such chapter and community projects or programs as the Committee may deem necessary.
