Join the Florida A&M University National Alumni Association (FAMU NAA) Southern Region at it's first one day conference in over a decade! The one day conference is an opportunity for Rattlers in the Southern Region to come together to fellowship, network, hands on learning to increase chapter operations; including chapter best practices, share knowledge/best practices/new ideas, hear from University, National and Regional leadership. During this time we will also hold our first regional election in over 5 years!
