Message from the President:
Greetings Alumni, Students and Supporters. Welcome to our Atlanta HBCU community! The Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance was conceived January 2004 when the Metro-Atlanta Alumni Chapter of Florida A&M University hosted a Mixer fundraiser and new member recruitment event while inviting other HBCU alumni chapters to join in on the fun.  While only a handful of Chapters were active participants, this was enough to spark a fire that led to the creation of the Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance (AHBCUAA). The leaders of 8 organizations met and brainstormed on how the Chapters can formally collaborate to work collectively to host fundraising events that one Chapter couldn’t successfully conduct on their own.  This led to the creation of The HBCU Alumni Mixer in 2005 that is held in conjunction with the Annual Honda Battle of the Bands and has continued to be one of our signature events to date. Over time, the combined efforts grew to include community service efforts consistent with our purpose of benefiting students and contributing to higher education.  This includes College Fairs in conjunction with The Mayor of Atlanta's Next Step Youth Program as well as college fairs hosted by the AHBCUAA. One thing we know about HBCU alumni, there is never a shortage of good old fashion competition. Shortly after the AHBCUAA was formed, we began hosting an annual run walk event which is now our biggest fundraiser with close to $100K in scholarships raised annually for metro Atlanta students as well as supporting local chapters alumni reclamation efforts with over 4.000 participants and spectators supporting this event annually. As the Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance has grown from 8 chapters to 51 chapters, we are most excited about the launch of additional Alliance organizations in Washington, DC, Chicago, IL and Miami, FL further expanding the HBCU community nationwide! We hope you will make plans to support our HBCU institutions and local communities by joining us in Atlanta as we demonstrate and celebrate the HBCU legacy of giving back. With much HBCU Pride!
