Chapter History

The Tampa Alpha Chapter was originally formed on November 15, 1969 when the UT Alumni Association was officially created as a national organization. At the first meeting of the new national organization the Tampa Alpha Chapter was chartered as the first chapter. Prior to 1969 the UT Alumni Association operated as a local alumni association and did not have any chapters. In 2010 the chapter changed the name of the group from Tampa Alpha to the Tampa Bay Alumni Chapter. The chapter continues to fund an endowed scholarship that was started by the Tampa Alpha leadership group in 2000.

In 2015 the chapter leaders voted to eliminate chapter dues for alumni to become members of the group and attend chapter activities. This change to the local chapter membership structure came as a result of the desire to increase local alumni involvement with a focus on two key areas; connecting alumni to one another and creating targeted engagement opportunities for alumni to support the university and our students. The change was made to help broaden the reach of the chapter by allowing chapter leadership and volunteers to focus on communication and engagement with our 10,000 plus Tampa Bay area alumni rather than membership. Free admission to the Gasparilla Brunch, one of the main benefits of joining the chapter, will continue to be offered to any lifetime chapter members and those that were in the midst of a 5 year membership on 8/1/15.
