Membership Invitation!

Hello Penn Staters!

Our Annual Membership event is going to coinside with the PSU v. Ohio State football game on October 30, 2021. We will be conducting any chapter business thirty minutes before kick-off. We will also be having a 50/50 raffle to benefit our scholarship program. Please look out for emails regarding this event.

The new membership year for the Central Maryland Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association is upon us. Our chapter’s membership year runs from June 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022, so now is the time to join or renew! Unfortunately, we’ve had to postpone our annual membership event, originally scheduled for May, due to the pandemic, so we’re conducting our membership drive online.

The chapter does receive some financial support from the PSU Alumni Association, but this doesn’t cover all of our operating expenses. By becoming a member of the chapter, you help us sponsor many activities throughout the year, including our annual membership event that we hope to conduct live post-COVID-19, the annual freshman sendoff, weekly football watching parties, monthly happy hours and other special events, including supporting THON. The chapter also supports local charities such as Toys-4-Tots and the Polar Bear Plunge and offers opportunities to represent Alumni Association values. By becoming a member, you will also receive regular emails from the chapter with event notices and our newsletter.

Please join or renew your annual dues today. Dues are $15 per year for individuals or $25 per year for a family membership.

All you need to do is click on the "Join Us" button in the menu bar at the top of this page and follow the directions. We have set up an entirely new membership tracking process, so we are asking that you complete the membership form, even if you are renewing.

Thanks in advance for your help and can’t wait to see everyone again soon!

We Are!

Lisa Garrett

Vice President of Membership

E-Mail Policy

The chapter has changed its e-mail policy so please take a second to review this information so that you can continue to received regular updates (typically monthly) from us.

We are moving to a much stricter opt-in policy to receive regular updates from the chapter. A few times a year, for important notifications (e.g. this membership invitation), we will use a mailing list from the Penn State Alumni Association for people in our local area who have opted into their mailings. But this is a limited one-time-use listing, so unless you select the option to be added to our regular list, these are the only updates you will see. If you'd like to continue hearing about chapter events and receive our newsletter, you'll need to opt-in. You can do this by clicking on the Join-Us link in the menu at the top of this page and enter your Name & Email in the "Subscribe to our Email List" box.
