The Troy University Alumni Association has launched its annual "Membership in May" campaign, an effort to keep more alumni engaged with University as a part of the Association, according to Alumni Affairs Director Faith Ward.
The Association currently serves alumni through 52 chapters in the United States and two international chapters located in China and Russia, Ward said.
"In 2012, Troy University celebrated 125 years of service to students in Alabama, the United States and around the world, and we look forward with anticipation to reaching even greater heights this year," Ward said. "This is the perfect time for our alumni to celebrate our treasured past while looking forward to a bright future."
The cost of an Alumni Association membership is: $25 per person annually or $500 for lifetime single membership and $750 lifetime couple membership. Payment plans are available for lifetime memberships. A free gift will be given to those alumni joining in the month of May. This year's goal is to reach 12,000 dues-paying members.
Association membership entitles alumni to benefits such as admission to all alumni tailgating events, free subscription to the Troy University alumni magazine, opportunities to save on purchases through the Saving Connection and discounted automobile, home and renters' insurance rates through Liberty Mutual.
"Alumni dues are a vital source of support for University programs and scholarships for deserving students," Ward said. "I invite all alumni to become active members of the Alumni Association, and I hope our alumni will encourage their friends and family members to do the same."
