Today's Black Family

We come from all corners of the earth rising above deep waters of fear
Overcoming the highest mountains of obstacles, rich in courage, strength and love

We are the image of those who have come before us
We are the vision of their dreams And the pride of their hearts
We are the fathers of character, knowledge and integrity
We are the mothers of comfort, beauty, wisdom and faith
We are the children of innocence and the hope of the next generation,
Whose future is filled with choice
We are unique people manifested by the abundance of God's power
And glorified through His spirit
We are Today's Black Family

   Nov 17, 2018 (9:00am - 1:00pm)  Ways and Means Meeting
This is a revised Update for the time and date for the Ways and Means Committee Meeting.
   Nov 16, 2019 (9:00am - 1:00pm)  WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE MEETING
The Ways and Means Committee is responsible for reviewing all proposed amendments made by authorized chapters to the Cousins Bylaws before being brought to the Executive Board. The Ways and Means Committee may also recommend the raising of funds, the utilization of time, talents and other resources in support of the National Cousins. All actions of this committee must be approved during a regular meeting of the Executive Board.

Due to a decrease in the attendance and dismantling of many chapters, a quorum, usually defined as two thirds of eligible voters, cannot be verified and it is the recommendation of the Committee that this requirement be eliminated until such time that an accurate summary of eligible chapters and representatives can be established.
