Mission & Membership
Welcome to the online home of the YALE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND (YAAM). If you attended or graduated from Yale College or any graduate program of Yale University, and you live in Maryland, you are a member of the YAAM.
One word summarizes our mission – CONNECTION. Our mission is to connect fellow Yalies. This can be as simple as sharing a beverage together at one of our Social events with another graduate, volunteering alongside a recent Medical School graduate at a Yale Day of Service event, or enjoying a casual mentoring session with a seasoned alumnus/alumnae eager to offer counsel and advice.
Our goal is to offer a selection of programming that will appeal to most of you. Our membership is scattered over a large geographic area. Attend an event if you can or plan a local event if scheduled events are too far away. As they say, “if you build it they will come”. Through this web site and other social media we hope to reach all of you. We hope to see live programming in multiple locations across the state.
As you explore the sections of our website, I hope that an idea or concept will resonate with you. I would urge you to reach out to the Chair of that section. And this is where you, our members, can pick up the torch. Please feel free to contact an officer with suggestions or if you are interested in volunteering.
We are a non dues paying organization. Tax deductible donations to YAAM are welcome and serve to defray the administrative costs of running the organization for its membership. Checks made out to YAAM can be sent to: 117 St. Albans Way, Baltimore, MD 21212.
If you are new to Maryland, please send us your email address so that we may include you in future events firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember that we are all connected by a common bond – Go Blue!
