UA Alumni Association Launches Crimson Cup Membership Campaign

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama National Alumni Association recently launched the Crimson Cup Campaign, a membership event that allows graduating classes to compete with one another in NAA memberships.

The campaign encourages graduation classes to come together with their former classmates to join the NAA. The goal is to have the most active members at the end of each year. The winning class will be recognized during UA Homecoming Week at the pep rally and on the football field during halftime of the football game.

The NAA will post updates on the Crimson Cup website,, on Facebook: AlabamaAlumni and on Twitter: @UAAlumniAssoc monthly.

NAA membership helps connect some 35,000 UA alumni; members receive discounts on services and purchases nationwide, as well as invitations to Homecoming and A-Day events.
