Connect & Network
The Meharry National Alumni Association, Inc., has a strong presence each year at the National Dental Association and National Medical Association conventions each year.
Alumni register through our office, and are encouraged to bring their families and show their Meharry spirit by actively participating in the various workshops, recruitment, and family-oriented activities planned. For example, the Office of Alumni Affairs offers a student mentoring and advising program for middle school to professional students, with emphasis in biological health sciences; hosted by local alumni, the program teaches students important life skills, like letter-writing and resume development.
We also host a Meharry Alumni Banquet at each convention.
July 30 — August 3, 2022
July 14 — 17, 2022

Membership dues are no longer due in January, but are due on an annual basis according to date of membership. For example, if you choose to pay dues in November, your next payment will be due in November of the following year. With this year-round payment option, your membership is guaranteed to be good for the entire year; however, it’s important to keep your dues current to receive the full benefit of the all mailings, notices, and events for the entire calendar year.
Your dues are the only means of support for our operations. Alumni Association dues also support such programs as:
- National Medical Association/National Dental Association Conventions activities
- Commencement/Reunion activities
- National Alumni Association Student Scholarship awards
- Chapter, alumnus, and faculty of the year awards

Below are some of the initiatives in which we plan to engage each alumnus.
- UPDATE YOUR FILE. The questionnaire below, when completed and returned to us, will be used, with your permission, to highlight your accomplishments and other information with fellow Meharrians through printed and web-based features about you. Throughout the year, we will post information on the Meharry website. The class years ending in 2s and 7s especially will be emphasized as Spring 2017 will be your next reunion year.
- The information will help us better respond to citizens all over the country who request that we give them the names of professionals in a particular city. Many wish to use the services of a Meharry graduate for their health needs.
- Help facilitate networking with fellow Meharrians who are in practice in an area where you may plan to relocate.
