Columbus Chapter
Letter from the President…

Dear fellow USNA alumni:

Welcome to the Columbus Chapter of the United States Naval Academy Alumni Association. I hope you use this site to keep informed of Chapter events and stay connected with alumni in Columbus and Central Ohio. In our region, there are more than 115 USNA alumni who have already expressed interest in participating in Chapter activities.

• Providing ample and diverse opportunities for alumni and their families to socialize, network, and have fun;
• Leveraging local Military and Air Force Academy organizations to enhance the overall experience of our members;
• Supporting and interacting with Navy entities such as visiting Navy sports teams/clubs, the local Naval Academy Parent Club, and the Columbus Navy League;
• Hosting an enjoyable and engaging Army-Navy football event; and
• Communicating effectively and consistently with local alumni.
