In 2018, the College of Agriculture Development Council established a new membership level to help engage young alumni. Former students that are 10 years or less from graduation are now eligible to join COADC for $500 per year for three years. After three years, the membership will convert to a full membership, with full membership dues of $1,000 per year.
The junior membership allows recent graduates to try out COADC at a reduced rate for several years before committing to a full membership. Junior members will have many of the same opportunities as full members:
- Invitation to attend semi-annual meetings in College Station and across Texas
- Voting privileges at the business meeting
- Ability to take part in all membership activities, such as attending regional meetings, serving on student organization grant selection committees, etc.
However, junior members will not be allowed to:
- Serve on the executive committee
- Serve as a regional chair
- Establish a matched scholarship until full membership level dues are paid for five years
For recent graduates, COADC is a great organization to not only directly help current students, but to also network with leaders in the agriculture and life sciences industries across the state.
