Time for a Change

Greetings Brothers,

Being born in humble surroundings to a mother and father who grew up during the Great Depression, I learned at an early age, the value of planning ahead for hard times while thankfully enjoying the modest blessings of the present. This was perhaps best demonstrated by the manner in which I saved and planned effectively to allow me to pay for my own college education without loans or burdening my parents.

I was fortunate to be brought into the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity process during my Freshman Year at Purdue University. This taught me not only the value of Friendship but also the benefit of a disciplined approach to managing my time between my Scholastic goals and my Fraternal pursuits.

My working career took me all across the US and around the world with assignments in several States and projects in countries including China, Mexico, France, Italy, Scotland, Sri Lanka, India, Viet Nam and Ireland. I retired in 2016 as Vice President of Quality and Chairman of the Corporate Quality Council after a 25-Year career with the Emerson Electric Co (a multi-Billion Dollar Multi-National manufacturing company headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.)

The move into retirement has been an interesting transition from the hustle and bustle of a career at the top tier of a large company. The good news is, it has given me much more time to devote to my passionate affinity to the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. Having previously served in Fraternity Leadership positions including:

Chapter Basileus

District Representative

International Committee Chairman

Grand Keeper of Records and Seal

I am now seeking an even greater opportunity to serve after having been unanimously endorsed by the 10th District as a 2018 Candidate for the Office of Grand Basileus.

My wife, Sandra, and my only child, Lyndsay Nicole, are both actively involved with their Greek organizations and therefore fully comprehend and support my campaign efforts. They have both, in fact, joined me in some of my campaign activities.

I have a vision for the Fraternity that will result in an enhancement of the fundamental nature of the Fraternity’s business: A Business Based on Brotherhood. As your Grand Basileus, I will work to move us beyond the difficulties that exist between the Fraternity and its internal entities, to further develop productive associations between the Fraternity and corporate partners and to remove the clouds of concern between the Fraternity and the Membership. The Supreme Council, with me as your Grand Basileus, will work collectively to assure the health, wealth and longevity of the Fraternity enterprise with the benefits being appropriately shared with the Membership.

Leadership, Experience, Integrity…..these are the things I offer. I have asked my record to be made available to everyone for their review. I ask that you join the effort to elect me as the 41st Grand Basileus of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.

Bro. Charles A. Bruce
