Big news for alumni! After an exciting year of discussion and planning, the National Alumni Board has become the Alumni Council Executive Committee, overseeing the broader Alumni Council—a restructured and re-energized alumni network.
After an expected warm-up phase, during which a broad range of new committees have been created and refined, there are now many opportunities to get involved, especially as a volunteer for your class. Some key roles include: helping plan class activities, serving on the alumni council as a class representative, and helping classmates stay in touch through Arches and the Web.
The Alumni Council will also continue to build regional clubs in cities across the country where significant numbers of Puget Sound alumni live. Regional Club volunteers assist with planning and implementing alumni and parent programming in their area (see “Twin Cities,” above); provide valuable “on-the-ground” expertise for students and alumni new to their city; and maintain regional club Web pages and other communication vehicles. Events in the works include faculty presentations, social and networking activities, and eventual Puget Sound on the Road programs with faculty and students.
The Alumni Council welcomes your help in strengthening relationships between existing groups (such as the ASK Network, Logger Club, and alumni Greek organizations), campus life, and future segments of the Alumni Association. Please go to www.pugetsound.edu/gateways/alumni/volunteer-opportunities/volunteer-interest-survey to let us know how you would like to become involved!
