Cadets Alumni Association Launches Free Membership

| |

We have asked and listened! Cadets alumni have told us they want to be involved. They want more news, networking and events to help remain connected with others who wore the prestigious uniform.

Most of all, they want to help support the corps that changed their lives.

In 2008, on the brink of the Cadets 75th Anniversary, Youth Education in the Arts announces the launch of the Cadets Alumni Association. No matter the banner or name you marched under, if you wore the Cadets Maroon and Gold, you are a part of this great alumni organization.

As a member of the Cadets Alumni Association, you automatically receive the following benefits:

* A timeless CAA membership card entitling you to 20 percent off Cadets merchandise, both online and at the corps souvenir truck.
* A hard copy alumni newsletter mailed to you four times a year.
* Email updates six times a year.
* More events, gatherings and reunions to rekindle lost ties.
* Office resources to help you reconnect with lost members

As a Cadet, you are entitled to all these perks just because you marched in this amazing organization. No fees or obligations come with being part of the Cadets Alumni Organization. All you have to do is fill out the online registration form to make sure your longevity with this corps goes far into the future.

A Commitment to YOU!

With the launch, alumni will see additional news and quality content on the Web page, so check with us frequently. Features planned in the coming months include Snapshots in Time, Cadets Making Music, Alumni and historical trivia, to name a few.

We’ve also heard the call from alumni who want additional opportunities to gather at events and reunions. Planned in 2008 are the following events:
