Join the Alamo Chapter (Become an Old Goat)
Membership in the Alamo Chapter is divided into 4 categories: Honorary, Regular, and Associate.
HONORARY. Individuals who have rendered outstanding and conspicuous service to the Naval Service, the United States Naval Academy, and the Armed Forces of the United States may be nominated for honorary membership. Names may be submitted to the Board by any regular member and, when nominated by that body, may be approved by two thirds of all regular members present and voting at any regular meeting of the Chapter. Honorary members will have all rights and privileges of the Chapter, except those of voting and of holding office. Honorary members, who are also eligible for regular membership, shall have all rights and privileges of a regular member without reservation. (Article IV, par 4, by-laws). Normally, honorary members will have dues waived upon recommendation of the Board of Directors. Honorary Membership is also granted to members of graduating classes 60 years and greater from the current year.
REGULAR. Any person who has been sworn as a Midshipman for the full and regular course prescribed by the Academic Board for his/her class at the U.S. Naval Academy shall be eligible for regular membership in the Chapter upon the graduation of that class. (Article IV, Par 1). Dues for Regular Members are currently $25 per year.
