Did you know???
Welcome to the July edition of the Upstate SC Chapter of FAMU AA Newsletter. Want to remind everyone that we will not meet this month. We are taking a Summer Break, but are looking forward to our next meeting scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2019 @ 1:00 PM at the Augusta Road Library.
Florida A&M University enrolls nearly 11,000 students from the United States and more than 70 countries such as India, Egypt, Trinidad, Netherlands, China, Bahamas, Jamaica, and Brazil.
We are working on several things for this upcoming football season which will include a watch party. We are looking to kick off the 2019 football season by watching the Rattlers play on Thursday, August 29 @ 7:30 PM. We are also considering a “Road Trip” into Bulldog country when the Rattlers travel up to SC State for a game in October. Come out to the meeting in August and hear more of what we are looking to do and bring some ideas and suggestions as well.

Its that time of year again when we have to pay our annual alumni association dues for the year. As a reminder, the Florida A&M University National Alumni Association has four main goals in its mission: raising and giving funds to the University that will support its programs; recruiting students who will attend the University; doing those things that perpetuate a positive image of the National Alumni Association and the University; and influencing community and governmental activities that will support the University's priorities. Accomplishing these goals requires that the FAMU NAA recruits alumni and others who will support the University and its goals through
L o c a l
membership in the FAMU NAA. In order to be a regular member of the Florida A&M University National Alumni Association, you must be a graduate or have at least completed one semester in good standing. If a person did not attend the university, but is interested in supporting the university, they may become an associate member. The fiscal/membership year for the association is July 1 to June 30. This is also the time frame for dues payment.
Costs to Join the FAMU NAA The cost of an annual membership with the FAMU NAA is $50 per year. The membership
A c t i v i t i e s
year runs from July 1 to June 30. In addition to this $50, there are regional and local chapter dues depending on which chapter and/or region a person chooses to become a member. Life membership costs $750. There are no Life Membership dues for regional and local chapter dues (at this time). Once a person is a life member, they no longer have to make annual payments to the NAA. The subscribing life membership allows people who wish to be come life members of the FAMU NAA to make the required $750 in increments over a three or five year period. Each year, those people making subscribing life payments pay the predetermined fraction of the life mem-
bership payment in addition to the annual membership payment. Dues Schedule is as follows for the FAMU Upstate Chapter of the FAMU NAA. National Dues $50.00 Regional Dues $10.00 Chapter Dues $30.00 National and Regional dues are due starting July 1 for the new year. They are to be paid online at the FAMU NAA website. The Chapter dues are to be paid at the chapter meeting. Please ask one of the officers for more information and details.

2019 FAMU FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS Some highlights of the 2019 season that impact us locally are the game against the University of Central Florida (in Orlando). This game will be played on a Thursday night. If I had to speculate, this game will be on one of the ESPN channels as it is a Thursday night game. We also play South Carolina State University in Orangeburg on Saturday, October 12. (POTENTIAL ROAD TRIP) HOMECOMING 2019 A key and probably the most important date is Homecoming, 2019. Homecoming this season is scheduled for Saturday, October 5. The game will start at 2:00 PM and we will be playing North Carolina Central.
