Our mission is to organize and provide an opportunity for Alabama alumni, family, and friends to find one another, gather together, share our experiences, and pool our resources. We hope to accomplish this though various meetings, sports viewing parties, and other social events. Our chapter also charges itself with welcoming out of town visitors and parents of Alabama students into our slice of Chicago-style southern hospitality.


We currently have over 300 due-paying members and a contact list numbering over 500 Chicago-area residents.  Our members have proven through the years that they are excited to participate in game watch parties, intramural sporting, social events with other SEC Chicago Alumni and networking events in the Chicago area.


Our leadership positions are dedicated volunteers striving to ensure the growth and development of the Chicago-area chapter. We welcome all suggestions towards improving our chapter, and we encourage all of our members contribute what gifts they can share towards improving our fellowship.


We aim to ease the financial burden to all of the alumni, friends, and family who participate in our events by requesting minimal annual dues of $25 for an individual, $40 for a couple and $60 for a family. These funds are used to arrange guest speakers, game watch parties, various aspects of our administration and organization, and other events (traveling to near-by games, social dinners, etc…). These funds also help support the Roll Tide Chicago Scholarship fund that helps a fund a portion of a Chicagoland area freshman tuition for their first year at the University of Alabama. Our fiscal year begins April 1 (please contact us to discuss prorated membership fees).

Dues also include a unique Roll Tide Chicago t-shirt.  Please make sure to renew every year to ensure you receive a new t-shirt – each year they design and color is different.

• With the accumulation of more membership dues, we hope to be able to endow a second scholarship to help an additional deserving Chicago area student attend our great University.

• As membership continues to grow, we will look to organize volunteer outings (Habitat, Food Service, etc…) and other off-season activities.

• To be able to help host and organize events for various Alabama alumni speaking engagements.

We always seek individuals that can volunteer their time to facilitate the mission and goals of the chapter, please contact an officer if you would like to help.
