Greetings Fellow Alliance Members The existing 128+ USMMA Alumni Chapters now have the distinction of representing our memberships on the *newly formed* USMMA KP Alumni – Chapter Presidents Alliance! We are eager for the support and cooperation of every one of the existing 128+ USMMA Alumni Chapters as we move forward with the progress of this vital alliance. We have a great opportunity and a wonderful vehicle to provide fulfillment of our alumni chapter(s) mission. Each Chapter President shall represent his Chapter at the meetings of the USMMA KP Alumni Chapter Presidents Alliance. Each Chapter President will have an equal vote on policy matters of the alliance.
This organization should be of the elected Chapter Presidents and by the elected Chapter Presidents as they represent all individual alumni members! The organization should be run by elected Chapter Presidents- those alumni who are “invested” in the well-being of their chapters and have been entrusted with the responsibility to act on behalf of their constituent alumni members.
Notice: This roster of KP Alumni Chapters, and contact information of our Chapter Presidents, has been provided, for the expressed purpose of Mission Support and contact, to benefit our Midshipmen, the Academy, and our KP Alumni.KP Alumni contact information is not to be used as a business solicitation resource.
