You may come alone, or bring your spouse, friend(s) or whole family. And invite a job colleague that went to KTH or whatever, we love to meet! And you don’t need to be CING member, but after trying the fun first time, we see many becoming one!

What does it cost?
There is no program fee. You pay for your meals, transport and accommodation. The Gasque has fixed price typically $ 60 - $75 for eating and drinking as much as you like, but kids are free. The Club Emil charity event by US Friends of Chalmers loves your donations for student scholarship.

Your personal data, and CING membership
We have been growing fast; it is not practical to manually track our nearly 1,000 alumni in our region. Therefore, we have phased in a unified electronic system for all alumni tracking - personal data and CING membership. This is a Web based operation set up by CING SE, and already in use for all
other Chalmers alumni around the world. You can enter / revise your personal info, address, email and more – or obtain / renew CING membership by using a credit card. And you can do more things on the Web data base, like find contacts or old friends!

Each Chalmers Alumnus, CING member or not, must register (free) in Chalmers Alumni Net - unless you already are in our system with correct info-; the Catalog info was imported as a starter. This data base is only official record of all Chalmers graduates, and also serves as our e-mail base
for USA-Canada. 

(REGISTER FIRST TIME) https://alumni.chalmers.se/admin/Public/Register.aspx Also, please update of your existing r address or other data – we need correct info to reach you! (UPDATE YOUR INFO) https://alumni.chalmers.se/login?ReturnUrl=%2f Also, please sign in for CING membership - simple, cheap, and WE NEED MORE MEMBERS!
If you have not done it yet, we strongly recommend that you start CING membership to support our activities and to get news and support from Göteborg. The cost / yr is only SK 320 ≈ US$ 38, CAN$ 50, OR SK 160 ≈ US$ 19 / CAN$ 25 if born in or before 1947. For getting mailed printed copies of Catalog and Avancons you have to add ≈ US$13 (SK 100). Use your standard US or CAN based VISA or MasterCard and go here to become member or renew:

(RENEW ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP) http://www.cing.chalmers.se/membership/payment/23267/Page

The registration and payment databases include the standard Swedish practice of using your Civic Registration Number (“Personnummer”) - here handled in a fully secure mode. If you forgot the number, there is info on the website to retrieve it. If you still don’t find such a number, or if other problems arise that are not solved by the Göteborg website assistance, please contact us! Looking forward to see each of you, and your spouse / friend / family, in Atlanta, GA

You do not have to be a member of CING to participate. Neither CING nor Chalmers has the address to all alumni, so if you have not received this invitation through that channel, please submit your email address to USA@CING.Chalmers.se so you will be on the mailing list for future events. 

If you want to host the 2018 meeting please send a message to a board member.

If you have not yet paid your membership…

Membership is voluntary and dirt cheap; still critical to keep CING going! You don’t need to be a CING member to join these events - but we are confident that once you have tried the fun, you likely want to join! Here is how you pay:


USA residents, if you have a problem paying please contact Stefan Pall, Treasurer CING USA-CANADA

Canada residents, if you have a problem contact Urban Ziegler, Vice Chair CING USA-Canada

Do you need to update your contact information?

To update your information simply go to www.cing.chalmers.se and click on “Address change”

Hope to see you in Seattle, WA.
