We want to welcome all Bryan Adams Alumni to the Bryan Adams Alumni Association website. All who attended or graduated from Bryan Adams are considered members of our alumni association, but we invite you to pay your annual dues too!
When alumni begin looking to plan their reunion, we are often the first place they stop. You can help your class find you by registering with us (it's free) and keeping your information updated. Additionally, alumni dues are only $15.00 a year or $200.00/lifetime and help keep things going here and with provisions the Alumni Association makes for our alma mater, including yearly scholarships. Show your support by paying dues.
We invite you to participate in our activities this year. The purpose of our alumni association is to provide:
the most comprehensive database of current alumni information
an additional source of monetary & physical support for the school
input from the community in school centered issues
increased spirit an support to school activities & programs
scholarship progarams to assist needy or gifted students
social activities that will provide multi-class interaction
Please consider supporting your alumni association by paying your annual dues!
Annual dues - $15.00
Lifetime dues - $200.00
For those of you have been a part of the association, attended events (found your future spouse even!), and have been able to plan better reunions as we continually gather updated alumni information, you know that this is a great deal and helps defray the costs of the association.
If you want to pay dues for the first time, renew your annual dues or become a lifetime member - visit here: http://www.baaa.org/index.php/donate_to_BA_Alumni_Association
If you have not already updated your information with us, please help us keep up with you for your class reunions and other alumni information by clicking here and searching for yourself, then update your information.
You will be able to choose a username and password (all alumni can do this - we will update paid alumni who will have higer access), plus change any incorrect information. We still have several things to finish, as you will see, but this will help us insure that your data is as up to date as possible, make sure that we get information from people we may not have it on, and insure that when your class has a reunion, they can get the information to you at the correct address.
If you have not already added yourself, or confirmed the move of your information from our other site, please be sure to Join the Mailing List to be notified of "All things BA" that the Association is involved with.
We are looking for Class Representatives for each year to help with keeping information accurate for their classmates. Please contact us if you can do this for your class.
