Join Now Update Personal and professional information

Thank you again for your interest in becoming a member of the Capital Fellows Alumni Association! We are proud to welcome new members at any time during the year.

Becoming a member is easy. We have a one-time, lifetime membership fee of only $99. This fee officially makes you a CFAA member and a portion is contributed to the Timothy A. Hodson Memorial Fund. Your donation will be a reflection of the value of the Fellows programs and your continued engagement in the Fellows Alumni community.

Current fellows (class of 2016-17) can join for a special rate of only $49, if you sign up before the end of the calendar year of your fellowship. Fellows from the class of 2015–16 can still sign up with the special rate of only $49 until April 30, 2017.

In order to purchase membership, please go HERE. Fill in the corresponding amount (either $99 or $49) and your personal information.

Ranked for four years as one of the Top 10 Internships nationwide by Vault.com, all of us in the Fellows community recognize the instrumental role the program played in our current and continued success either in the Capitol community or whatever professional endeavor we are engaged in.

The funds raised by purchasing a membership will assist CFAA in continuing several impactful programs, including:

  • Quarterly mixers around the Capitol community, and throughout the nation.
  • A Capital Fellows Alumni Database to foster connectivity between Fellows of all generations and programs.
  • The support of brown bag lunches, educational speakers, career objective panels, etc.
  • An annual contribution to the Timothy A. Hodson Memorial Fund.
  • Finally, your contribution is tax deductible!

Your membership would be considered a charitable gift to an education not-for-profit organization established under 501(c)(3) guidelines in affiliation with Sacramento State and the Sacramento State Alumni Association.
