Why be a member?
First and foremost, being a member of the USNA Alumni Association in San Diego affords each individual the opportunity to “give back” to the Naval Academy for the terrific education and opportunities we were provided. Membership also provides individuals with the following opportunities:
Help Identify Future Leaders to Serve in our Navy and our Community
Membership provides opportunities to promote the Naval Academy and to help identify the future leaders to serve in our Navy and our Community.
Members help our Navy Region Southwest Blue and Gold Officer identify potential Naval Academy candidates and assist with the Annual USNA Candidate dinner in San Diego.
Members are kept informed of pertinent information and activities relevant to the USNA, the USNA Alumni Association, and the USNA Foundation through monthly Newsletters, emails, and a monthly Luncheon.
Members are provided access to the USNAAA San Diego Chapter Web Page which includes the current newsletter, meeting and membership forms and links to a variety of websites.

Members are informed of USNA events occurring in the San Diego area (baseball, lacross, soccer, crew, glee club, etc.)
