The Seven Keys to Becoming a Great U-M Alumni Club Leader
Who Pays for All This Stuff? Who Pays? U-M Seattle Logo We had a great BBQ last year for U-M students interning in Seattle over the summer. I was talking to as many interns and young alums as I could, and at one point one of them asked me, with what seemed to be a note of amazement, who was paying for all of this? It was a good question, of course, and I was happy to answer it, but it made me realize that there may be others out there as well who need some help connecting the dots. image-on-left

Michigan Games Shown at Old Stove Brewing Visit Old Stove Old Stove on Game Day

You may have already heard of Old Stove Brewing. What you may not know, though, is that co-founder Chris Moore is a Michigan boy, born and bred, and grew up attending Michigan games in The Big House! Televisions were installed recently, and Chris has a breakfast menu for those 9 AM games. Buckley’s in Belltown remains our official game watch location in Seattle, but you may want to drop by Old Stove for a game or two as well.

Get Your Lifetime Membership Now, Before the Coming Price Increase Become a Lifer Today! U-M Alumni Association

But for the next few months it’s an even better deal than usual, because membership fees will be going up on July 1! So if you become a lifetime member now, you will not only avoid paying the usual membership dues ever again, you will also avoid having to pay the increased dues that will be in effect after this date! So join today to maximize your benefits and minimize your costs! And don’t forget to specify UNITE in the promo code when you sign up, since this will send additional funds to our local club!

A Note From Your Club President Join Today! U-M Club of Seattle

Just a quick note from your Seattle Club President to impart a few important pieces of information.

  1. You’re not currently a member of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan. I’ve noticed when greeting people at events that many people are honestly confused about their current membership status, so I thought it might be helpful to let you know where you stand.

  2. That’s OK. Our mission is to help connect all U-M alumni to each other and to our University, so you’re welcome to continue receiving our emails, attend all of our club events, and in general enjoy all of the benefits of being a proud Michigan alum living in the greater Seattle area.

  3. Membership makes all of this possible. Our local club gets its operating funds from the Alumni Association, based on the number of Association members we have in our region, and the Association in turn receives its operating funds from membership dues. Unlike many other alumni associations, ours is not dependent on its University for handouts, but instead is its own independent member-based organization. And while our local club is run entirely by volunteers like myself, it takes money to host our website, to run our mailing list, and to help defray the costs of many of our events.

  4. And membership means so much more. Your Alumni Association membership can be a gateway into a network of richer, deeper connections with Ann Arbor, with the University that you love, and with your fellow Wolverines.

  5. If you’d like to join the Association, we’re ready when you are. Just head on over to the Alumni Association’s Website.

  6. Enter the Promo Code of UNITE when joining or renewing. Using this promo code will maximize the local impact of your membership, and will credit our local club with additional funds that we will use to better serve our local U-M community.

If you have any other questions about membership you can take a look at the Membership Q&A on our website, or you can always shoot me a note.

And that’s it. I just wanted to send this quick, informative one-time message.

And now back to our regular programming.

Alumni Census Stand Up and Be Counted U-M Alumni Census

Events to Suggest? Event Idea Alums Hiking Together at Twin Falls

Have any event ideas for local alums that you’d like to suggest? Our Club Board is always looking for new events that might be of interest to Wolverines in the greater Seattle area. Book Club? Community Service Opportunity? New Restaurant to check out? If you think it would be a fun way to connect with fellow Wolverines, then there’s a good chance we can find others who would be interested as well.
