March 29-April 1, 1984
Washington Hilton Hotel, Washington, DC

Dear Friend:

The National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) will sponsor its Ninth National Conference on Blacks in Higher Education, March 29-April 1, 1984, at the Washington Hilton Hotel, Washington, DC.

The Conference will explore "Trends"--scientific and technological, socio-economic, political, domestic and international, and other trends--which have implications for the higher education of Blacks. NAFEO will chart a course to enable all to facilitate the enhancement of the education of Blacks by moving in consonance with rather than in opposition to prevailing trends.

As you know, NAFEO is the non-profit, voluntary, independent organization which represents 114 historically and predominantly black American colleges and universities. These institutions, which annually enroll more than a quarter of a million students and yearly graduate in excess of 30,000 young Americans with baccalaureate, graduate, and/or professional degrees, are proud that through self-determination we, ourselves, are ensuring the continued strength of our institutions.

On behalf of the entire NAFEO membership, I cordially invite you to participate in this activity by registering as an attendee. The broad cross-section of society that will participate in the conference is shown on the enclosed material. By completing and returning the enclosed registration form with your check, money order or organizational voucher, you will ensure that your registration material will be available when you arrive at the conference site.

Your organization/agency is also invited to utilize this opportunity to effect direct linkage with the conference's leaders in minority education by becoming an exhibitor. In order to maximize contact between exhibitors and attendees, the Association uses the technique of holding its registration as well as several other functions in the exhibition hall. If you are interested in receiving further information concerning the exhibition, please check the registration form where indicated.

Those who have the strongest commitment to Black higher education will be interested in becoming patrons of the Ninth Annual Leadership Awards Banquet, the occasion where outstanding leaders are recognized and rewarded. Persons interested in becoming conference patrons may register directly on the enclosed form.

We look forward to seeing you at the NINTH NAFEO EXPERIENCE, March 29-April 1, 1984.


Samuel L. Myers
