Houston, we have a Chapter

The USNA Alumni Association, Texas Gulf Coast Chapter (the TxGC) is the official Naval Academy chapter for the greater Houston area.  We serve you, our Alumni, parents, Midshipmen, service members, Veterans, and friends, in support of the Naval Academy and its mission through engagement and activities which perpetuate the history, traditions, memories, and growth of the Naval Academy, and bind our family together in support of the highest ideals of command, citizenship, and government.

The USNA Alumni Association, Texas Gulf Coast FOUNDATION, a 501(c)3 organization, was established in 2013, separate from the Chapter, with the specific purpose of perpetuating philanthropic efforts that are closely aligned with he ideals of the Naval Academy Alumni Association Foundation, Veterans, and the local Houston community.

New Website

We’ve moved to a new website… new look, new address, new back office, new member management, but what you should care about is the lower costs and lower membership dues. Member profiles are merging with those on USNA.com (the national USNA Alumni website).  Soon, as an Alumni or parent, you can log into your USNA.com profile (from here or @ USNA.com), and you’ll see your TxGC membership.  Until this is complete, when you log in to your USNA.com profile, if you don’t see your TxGC term info, please contact us, and we can email your TxGC info.
