Message from the President
Welcome Fellow Vikings and Friends,
As all of us have navigated with a sense of trepidation throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, the alumni of our fine institution have stayed the course in the commitment that we have to support our Alma Mater according to three basic tenets: Student Recruitment, Alumni Giving, and Association Membership. Over the past few years, the University has exceeded goals in student enrollment and this past year, the NAA achieved one of its highest fundraising totals with our Mr./Ms. Alumni contest by raising over $120K…none of this would be possible without the support of our alumni and friends.
To accomplish our goals, the NAA relies heavily on our 25-30 chapters nationwide to be our “boots on the ground” and serve as ambassadors, in partnership with ECSU Admissions, to recruit high quality prospective students as well as find new and innovative ways to encourage alumni giving.
If you wish to join the National Alumni Association, please click on the link at the bottom of the page to download a copy of our membership application. Currently, our dues structure is as follows:
- Annual National dues - $50
- Annual Chapter Dues – Varies by chapter
- Life Membership - $750 per person/$1250 per couple
We have multiple ways to pay dues or donate to the NAA. Dues and donations can be processed on the tab on the left side of the page labeled “Join the NAA” or by CashApp at $naavikingsgive.
To join a local chapter, please click on the “Alumni Chapters and Presidents” tab on the left side of this page. Our chapter presidents and membership chairpersons look forward to engaging with you.
In closing, I look forward to working with each of you. Remember…we are always stronger with you, than without you.
James W. Cherry, II ‘96
