Membership and activity fees
Beginning in 2012, The Ohio State University EE/ECE Alumni Society instituted an activity fee of $20 per calendar year.* Note that all alums of the EE/ECE Department are members of the society without a membership fee, and are welcome to participate in most society events without paying the activity fee; however, there are several advantages for members to pay the annual fee:
- The activity fee must be paid for society members to qualify for the football ticket lottery for Homecoming Weekend games each fall. Alums can participate in other Homecoming Weekend events without paying the activity fee.
- Alumni who have paid the activity fee qualify for a discounted price for any charges at other Society events.
- Alumni who have paid the activity fee qualify for a discounted price for any Society merchandise (coming soon).
The activity fee duration is based on the calendar year, so activity fees paid in 2014 expired Dec. 31, 2014. Renewal of the activity fee is required for society members to qualify for items above during the 2015 calendar year.
The income from the activity fee will be used as funds to help the operation of the Society and as seed money to help sponsor new events for the society.
