You want to start a chapter...now what?

If you are interested in starting a chapter your next step is to review the Chapter Manual. If after reviewing the manual, you determine that you are interested in forming a chapter the next steps are: contact Paige Price at 205.934.3555 or email at cpprice@uab.edu.

  • Become a UAB National Alumni Society member (if you’re not already). All chapter leaders must be current members.  Join online.
  • Go to the UAB Chapter page, to find out if there is an active chapter in your geographic area (within a 50 mile radius of your city). If not;
  • Contact Paige Price, Chapter Specialist, at cpprice@uab.edu or 205.934.3555 to express your interest in organizing a group.

Next, gauge the interest of those alumni/friends in starting a chapter. We recommend one of the following events as a way to get people together for this purpose: 

  • Dinner at a restaurant or family-friendly bar
  • Picnic
  • Family activity (bowling, putt-putt golf, etc.)
  • Cookout at a volunteer’s home
  • Game watch party
