University of Michigan Alumni Association

About the UM Portland Club and the AAUM

Membership Has Its Benefits

Each member of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan is automatically a member of his or her local (regional) club. There are no other dues or fees required to participate as an active member. Click here for more details or to join now.

Membership in a regional club – in this case, the U of M Club of Portland – is based on your address information kept on record by the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan. Please be sure to keep that information up-to-date.


  • new graduates are entitled to a free one-year membership;
  • recent graduates are entitled to reduced membership rates;
  • your membership in your regional club is automatic and free, with a paid annual or lifetime membership in the AAUM.

The U of M Club of Portland receives operating funds from the Alumni  Association of the University of Michigan, according to the number of registered  alumni in this area who have paid memberships in the AAUM. The benefits that the U of M Club of Portland provides its Members far outweighs the nominal membership fee. You help support the M-Club of Portland with a paid membership in the U of M Alumni Association.

Previous Events

During the Football Season, we meet for every game at the family friendly Thirsty Lion Pub (NW 2nd & Ash) downtown Portland. Get there early if you want a seat...we average over 100 people per game with the big games closer to 200. We also do frequent happy hours and other events. The location of the happy hour lately has been rotating and the best way to stay in-the-know is by subscribing to the email distribution, or following our facebook page:
