Interesting change. Definitely more inclusive and it's great for the membership, but I wonder how they're affording this?

Wonder how that affects non-graduates that attended UAB and are members of NAS currently?

This will be a good excuse to call out of town grads and tell them to use that NAS money to join Blazer Boosters!

RE: Every UAB alumnus is now a full member of the National Alumni Society
Does this explain the increase in spam I've been getting from UAB and the NAS to buy insurance or re-buy my graduation pictures?

I guess this is a good gesture but what exactly does it get me? I had been a member of the NAS for many years post-graduation but never got anything out of it except the car sticker. they had started putting so many restrictions on the parking permit, and then I started working at UAB and I lost that completely (and then moved out of state). I want to give to UAB but the NAS specifically has never really seemed like it serves a purpose to me as an alum. I'd rather just give directly to programs I want to support

Agree

The tailgates at the Tennessee game and the N.O. Bowl were nice events.

NAS has always done great tailgating events. Their problem has been an inability to connect with and listen to NAS members when it comes to non tailgating issues
