Membership is open to anyone who was employed by DEKALB AgResearch, Inc. of DeKalb, Illinois and its subsidiaries. DEKALB had changed its name many times over the years. It has been known more recently as DEKALB Genetics Corporation.

As a member you have the opportunity to renew friendships with former colleagues, learn more about the history of DEKALB and the winged ear, and stay current on Association activities. Our annual meeting is held in September for two days, and you are encouraged to attend some or all of the activities that are planned. We also have a spring luncheon usually held early in April. Newsletters are sent out periodically to keep members informed on current events and happenings.

In order to maintain your membership status annual dues are $15.00, renewable each August/September in conjunction with the annual meeting.

To become a member, you can print out the application form or contact one of the board’s directors to send you an application. Fill out the form and return it with a check made out to “DEKALB Alumni Association” for your annual dues.
