Gov. Charles Turnbull left the territory Friday to meet with representatives of Beal Aeropsace in Dallas, and with federal officials in Washington, D.C.
Turnbull's first stop, however, will be the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity's 93rd Anniversary convention in Dallas, where he will be a guest speaker.
"Since I am a member and I am being honored, I felt it was quite necessary for me to accept this invitation," Turnbull said Friday in a statement.
After the convention, Turnbull added, he will meet with Beal officials to "convey the government's support for the establishment of the proposed Beal plant at a St. Croix location."
On August 3 and 4, Turnbull will be in the nation's capital discussing the territory's financial crisis with federal officials. He will return to the territory on August 5.
