The Board of Directors of the Kent State Alumni Association has implemented strategic changes aimed at evolving our programming to ensure all Kent State graduates feel like Flashes Forever. Central to our strategic plan, the alumni association Board of Directors has recently approved a change to its operating model to discontinue the fee-based membership program. 

Why are changes being made to the membership program?
When does this change take place?
How will the alumni association fund programming without membership fees?
How do I support Kent State University financially now?
I am a life member. How do these changes affect me?
I am an annual member. How do these changes affect me?
I received a complimentary membership. What happens after October 31, 2018?
So, all of this is a good thing, correct?
