The Alumni Council met up on the Hill during a glorious Fallcoming Weekend. Temperatures soared into the low 80's. A record 59 Council members made the trip to the Hill. Weekend Council activity included:
- Fallcoming Photo Gallery
- Celebration of Service Dinner on Friday evening:
The Alumni Council presented our Volunteer of the Year award to Dick Couper '44 for his years of dedicated service to the College. Three College Key Awards were presented to Ed Deci '64, John Villios '73 and Alan Silverman '76. Congratulations and thank you!
- Council Business - Council Expansion:
The executive committee of the Alumni Council agreed to expand Alumni Council membership to include Class Agents, as part of the Class Leadership Committee, and GOLD group chairs, as part of the Regional Affairs Committee. The Council approved these recommendations noting that expansion provides "... means of better serving both the College and our alumni constituency ... [and] creates a basis for a stronger, deeper, more far-reaching Alumni Council."
- Multicultural Alumni - Students Mentoring Kick-Off Event: A weekend highlight included the inaugural mentoring event sponsored by the Multicultural Alumni Relations Committee (MARC). More than 80 people attended, including more than 20 alumni mentors, 50 students and members of the College community at large. Kudos are extended to MARC chair Torrence Moore '92 and mentoring sub-committee chair Laura Hsieh '93 and all MARC committee members who contributed to the inauguration of this program.
- Alumni Council Welcomes New Alumni Association (AA) Regional Presidents: The Council extended its welcome to new AA presidents: Bruce Gaylord '70 and Alexandra Stevens '95 in Fairfield County; Sara Shapiro Haberson '97 and Justin Haberson '96 in Philadelphia, along with Lynne Salkin '00 the Philadelphia GOLD chair; Liz Holland '87 in Chicago; Dan Murdock in Westchester County; and Bill Gaden '84 (as co-president with Susan Bacot '88) in New York City.
