About Membership

In July 2022, your Penn State Alumni Association (PSAA) membership expanded to include access to the Penn State Alumni Association Lancaster Chapter (Lancaster Chapter). In addition to receiving information regarding Penn State events from the PSAA, you will also receive information regarding local events coordinated by the Lancaster Chapter.

This change eliminates separate dues for local chapter membership, making it easier for Penn Staters to stay connected.

The Lancaster Chapter proudly represents Penn State through local scholarships, social events, community service projects, networking events, trips, and activities. To learn more about PSAA and their membership opportunities, click here.
