For the 10th consecutive year, the Phoenix Business Journal has ranked the ASU Alumni Association as the No. 1 largest metro Phoenix networking association. The ASU Alumni Association supports more than 600,000 alumni across the globe with 328,028 Sun Devils living and working in Maricopa County.

The ASU Alumni Association cultivates a lifelong connection to the university and keeps Sun Devils engaged through a volunteer-led network of 118 geographic chapters, special-interest chapters and international connections.

This network delivers over 200 events and programs each year, ranging from national chapter-led projects like ASU Cares and the Tillman Honor Runs to annual university traditions such as Founders’ Day and Affinity Reunions.

“We are proud to celebrate a decade as the No. 1 largest networking association,” said Christine K. Wilkinson, president and CEO of the ASU Alumni Association.

“While the pandemic prompted us to embrace virtual events as a way to reach across communities, we now see a reemergence of in-person engagement and a desire to be involved throughout the year. Arizona State is well prepared to provide both traditional and innovative networking opportunities to fellow Sun Devils across the globe.”

The Phoenix Business Journal released the ranked list of networking associations in its 2023 edition of the publication, which highlights the total number of members, annual dues, number of events held in 2022 and the top local executive membership for each networking association.

There are many ways to become involved in the ASU Alumni Association. Get more information on programs, virtual and in-person events and networking opportunities.
