We are the Richmond Chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association — an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote the welfare of the university by cultivating a mutually beneficial relationship between Virginia Tech and its growing worldwide community of alumni. Aspiring to be a primary linkage between the university and its family of alumni across the globe, to commit them to the university’s missions of life long learning, discovery and engagement, and to attract them to university service.
OUR PRINCIPLES AND CORE VALUES:
The cornerstone of our core values is found in the university motto, ‘Ut Prosim,’ That I May Serve.
We value integrity, honesty, and ethical behavior and strive to maintain a working environment that is built on mutual respect, understanding and freedom of expression.
We share the university’s commitment to life long learning, discovery and engagement.
We value fellowship, personal growth and development, and the concept of community: local, regional, and global.
We value civility, sportsmanship and good behavior in our support of all athletic programs of the university while demonstrating a high degree of respect for our opponents.
ALL Virginia Tech alumni are AUTOMATICALLY members of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association and a member of their local Virginia Tech Alumni Association chapter wherever they reside FOR FREE FOR LIFE – our chapter and the main alumni association office in Blacksburg NEVER charges any dues to be considered a member or “active.” The Richmond metropolitan area is the second largest Virginia Tech alumni chapter in the world with approximately 15,000 members.
Our geographic area includes the City of Richmond plus the counties of: Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Powhatan.
VT Alumni Association vs Hokie Club:
We are not the Hokie Club. The Hokie Club is a separate organization from the Virginia Tech Alumni Association. To become or remain a member of the Hokie Club, you MUST PAY a membership fee since they raise funds specifically for the athletic department at Virginia Tech. Additionally, anyone – whether they are a Virginia Tech alumnus/graduate or not – can join the Hokie Club as long as they pay for their membership level (i.e. Golden Hokie, Silver Hokie, etc.).
