In May 2009, Mr. Mason signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a partnership between Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the FBI, through which the FBI seeks to share its role in federal law enforcement and responsibility in safeguarding the United States. This collaboration has enabled the FBI to build relationships through dialogue and has facilitated information sharing. As a result of the dialogue, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has joined with the FBI in various events, such as national leadership conferences, regional conferences, and retreats, to provide recruitment opportunities and communicate the role of the FBI through education and awareness.
Through the partnership with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc and the leadership of Mr. Mason, the FBI has graduated a number of Citizens’ Academy participants, recruited qualified applicants for Bureau careers, and afforded the FBI the opportunity to build a continuing relationship with an organization committed to excellence.
