Albert Benifield, Jr., President
Alabama A&M University National Alumni Association, Inc.
I want to wish everyone a "Happy New Year" and hope that 2017 is off to a great start for you! Again, I say thank you for trusting me to lead such a great organization as the Alabama A&M University Alumni Association. In 2017 let's aspire to greatness. As we continue to move forward, I'm reaching out to you to help us get there.
In the area of Membership Growth: I need everyone who is not a member to become a member. For those of you who are members I say "Thank You" for your support and continue that support by renewing your membership where applicable. After you have done that I need you to reach out to our fellow Normalites and get them to join us on this journey to make Alabama A&M University the best it can be.
In the area of Strengthen revenue streams we are in the final stages of setting up the Alumni Scholarship Endowment. This will be a lasting legacy for years to come to assist future students attending Alabama A&M University for perpetuity. You can be a part of this lasting legacy. You can contribute online by using the following link https://secure.qgiv.com/for/aau/ and selecting "AAMU National Alumni Association Scholarship"; or you can send your donations to:
Alabama A&M University Foundation
P.O. Box 1057
Normal, AL 35762
Make checks payable to: AAMU Foundation and put Alumni Scholarship Endowment in the memo section. No amount is too small.
In the area of Building (Strengthen) Relationships: Reach out to our current students, Alumni and the Administration and encourage them. We all need to be "Ambassadors" for the University to continue to recruit the best and brightest students to attend our Alma Mater.
As we move forward in 2017, Let's show our love for Alabama A&M University by telling our story. No one can do that better than you. Tell someone what impact Alabama A&M University had on you and how it affected your life.
Thank you for what you are doing, will do and have done for Alabama A&M University and Remember!
