January 2020 Update:


Its almost that time! We have made arrangements with the Cambria Suites in TC for reduced rates to come see us for Alumni Weekend. Call them at 231-778-9000 and mention GLMA Alumni Weekend for a nice spot to stay!


Please note - the Annual Business Meeting this year will be at the Cambria Suites in their Mission Room from 1000-1230. Coffee and bagels will be provided.

We have also decided to stop receiving our mail at GLMA. We have opened a PO Box and are officially accepting mail there. This will be a process to let everyone know and switch things over, so if you have already mailed anything to GLMA, we will still get it. We are appreciative of the support from GLMA for all these years to keep an eye on our mail, but its time to do something a little different.


The new address for all mailing for the Alumni Association is


Great Lakes Maritime Academy Alumni Association (Can use GLMAAA as well)

PO Box 274

Acme, MI 49610



November 2019 UPDATE:


We are getting closer to our annual Alumni Weekend. The dates for this year’s event are Feb. 14-15, 2020. Our Mariner’s Ball will be at the Hagerty Center this year. Click on the Events tab at the top for more info.


Some of you may have noticed we are looking at a milestone this year. The Great Lakes Maritime Academy is 50 years old this year. The first class of cadets started in 1969. NMC celebrated this anniversary with an event at the Hagerty Center on Dec. 7th, 2019. It was well attended and raised money for GLMA scholarships. Check out the NMC website for details. GLMA Alumni Association Board Members were present as were many of our Alumni to help celebrate 50 awesome years at GLMA. We are also looking forward to the Alumni Association’s 50th Anniversary in 2022! We hope to have a grand event then!!


If anyone has exciting news they want to share, feel free to email us or use the Contacts page and let us know and we will share it for you!


Just a reminder that 2020 association dues are $40. We look forward to doing more in the future for the alumni and cadets! The new link is active on the Pay GLMAAA page and ready for you!


We have added a page to the website titled Cadets. Take a look there for info on our new eMentoring program! Its just a start, but shows much promise!


So take a look around. Check all the pages. Feel free to pay dues and buy your dinners online or contribute to the Scholarship or General Fund on the Pay GLMAAA page. Make sure we have your email by filling out the subscribe form on our Mailing List page.
