In 1950, SOLOMON LEVY, a professional scouter and friend of (Lord) Dr. H. Roe Bartle (a.k.a. The Chief), then National President of Alpha Phi Omega U.S.A., came to the Philippines to help generate more interest among Filipino Scouts. Upon the urging of 'The Chief', he gave a short talk and distributed some three copies of Alpha Phi Omega publications: Questions and Answers, National constitution and By-Laws and Ritual rites and Ceremonies to a group of Filipino Scouts. (Lord) LIBRADO I. URETA, an Eagle Scout and a graduate student at Far Eastern University, Manila was among the audience.

The story was of particular interest to a group of Scouts at the Far Eastern University in Manila. It may have been because their library was helped by the Alpha Phi Omega or because the idea of Scouting-based fraternity just struck the fertile ground. (Lord) LIBRADO I. URETA and group of over twenty Scouts and Advisors began organizing work. On March 2, 1950 the first organization of Alpha Phi Omega outside the United States was established at the Nicanor Reyes Hall, Room 214, Far Eastern University, Manila, Philippines. It was known as the Alpha Chapter.

Alpha Phi Omega rapidly and healthily grew in the Philippines. In its third year, it became a national organization with seven chapters chartered in Manila and Visayan campuses. It was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, non-profit, non-dividend corporation with a registered name of Alpha Phi Omega International Collegiate Service Fraternity.

The Charter members who served as the first National Officers were (Lords):

Librado I. Ureta (First National President), Ignacio J. Sevilla Jr., Romeo Y. Atienza, Guillermo R. Padolina, Godofredo P. Neric, Leonardo R. Osorio, Ralph G. Hawkins, Alfredo delos Reyes, Bonifacio V. Lascano, Lamberto T. Dominguez, Max M. Velasco

"As scouting is world-wide, gradually in the colleges and universities of all nations." Pronounced Frank Reed Horton. And so it did.
