Stipend Offers

The Alumni Board is offering stipends for those who have not attended in the last five years or more. Stipends include meals and events for the chosen candidate. The Alumni Board is also offering caregiver stipends so that any members who need support can have it without cost to the caregiver. The caregiver cannot be an alumni member, must accompany their alumni member at all times, and are subject to the same rules as all convention attendees. The Alumni Board will select candidates for up to ten stipends.  The deadline to submit candidates is Sunday, May 15, 2022.  

Members who want to submit the names for any stipend should provide the candidates’ contact information to Michael Talley.

FAQ

Click each accordion pane to learn more about arrangements for 2022 Alumni Convention security, transportation, and housing arrangements.

Security

Campus security will be available throughout the convention weekend.  You may even see a Talladega County Deputy Sheriff on campus who patrols the AIDB campuses.  We are glad to have them patrolling.  If you require the services of a Deputy Sheriff, please contact security at 256-761-3266.

Armbands

Yellow and blue armbands will be issued to every registered member and guest. The armbands are a part of our security measures. If you notice Alumni members on campus without an armband, please direct them to registration. If you notice anyone that you do not know, please notify security or one of the Alumni officers.
