FRESHMEN SEND OFF
An Auburn Club Freshmen Send-off is defined as an event that is held to recognize and send off incoming freshmen to Auburn University.
- •45 Auburn Clubs hosted a Freshmen Send-off event for incoming students in their respective communities; this is the same number as 2014, but not all of the same clubs.
- Clubs reported 523 freshmen and 788 parents attended send-offs which included picnics, a house boat, brunches, pool parties, dinners in local restaurants, and parties in homes of Auburn families
- 13 clubs had send-offs for the first time, including four organizing/reorganizing clubs (Cincinnati, Columbia-Midlands, Baton Rouge and Piedmont-Triad); 13 clubs who hosted a send-off in 2014 did not have one in 2015
- For the first time, the Auburn University Parents Association (AUPA) provided gift packs for parents of incoming freshmen; the alumni association sent each student an Auburn koozie and a card with the Auburn Creed
An Auburn Club is for all Auburn alumni and friends. The Auburn Alumni Association is dependent upon members making contributions to provide the necessary financial support to help carry on the services and programs required for an effective Auburn Club Program. According to Section 5 of the Policy for Auburn Clubs included in the by-laws of the Auburn Alumni Association, active membership in an Auburn Club shall be limited to the active members of the Auburn Alumni Association. All club officers must be active members of the National Alumni Association, but the by-laws of any club provide that worthy and loyal friends who are not alumni may become associate members of the local club. All clubs should promote this effort, since Auburn has tremendous non-alumni support from people across the state, region, and nation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Auburn Club Membership Commissions is a program established and approved by the board of directors of the Auburn Alumni Association to foster and increase memberships in the association, as well as to enhance the association membership experience. By joining the alumni association, one is automatically a member of their local Auburn Club. A three-year roll out program was established, with the first group of clubs joining the program on October 1, 2009. The second group of clubs joined on October 1, 2010. The third and final group joined on October 1, 2011. All clubs now participate in Auburn Club Membership Commissions.
Alumni had expressed increased confusion of being asked to pay memberships in the association and in the clubs, not understanding the difference in both groups and many feeling they should not pay to join both. Dues in both groups were seen as conflicting with one another. Since clubs are chartered under the Auburn Alumni Association, it seemed logical that club members should be members of the association. Thus, by joining the Auburn Alumni Association, one is automatically a member of the Auburn Club in their area, if applicable.
The Auburn Alumni Association will automatically assign members of the alumni association to a club in their area. Names and contact information will be provided to the clubs with the goal of increasing membership and participation in the clubs. The association will pay “commissions” to clubs who recruit new and returning members to the association. These incentive payments are made after the end of the association’s fiscal year, September 30, and deposited to the club’s annual or endowed scholarship fund held by the AU Foundation (no later than November 15). If a club does not have a club scholarship, the money will be held for one year to allow the club time to establish one. After one year, if the club has not established a scholarship fund with AU, the money will be placed in the Auburn Alumni Association scholarship endowment. The membership department will provide to clubs membership applications with the club code marked clearly on each throughout the year. It is also possible to join the alumni association online, designating the local club as one joins, which will result in a commission being awarded to the applicable club. Applying for a membership is available online at: alumni.auburn.edu/join

This program will be successful if membership increases in the alumni association and in clubs, and if clubs participate by recruiting members and educating them on using the club code on application forms or the club name when joining online, subsequently receiving monies from the association in the club’s scholarship fund.
No. Membership will be unified. All members of the alumni association will automatically be eligible for local club participation. This will eliminate confusion between club memberships and association memberships.
