Hey 11122233, do you confuse the real world with web boards often?

RE: Alumni Association.
Overall, seems like a smart idea... and I'm quite happy they told me before I sprung for the Lifetime membership this year!

Rolleyes RE: Alumni Association.
04-bs04-bs:bs:Totally ignoring the faithful alumni that live on the east side of the state, forever (sometimes referred to as the "Lost Battalion")
certainly promotes the provincial attitude that always has, and continues to exist.
If whoever wishes WMU to continue to be a regional teachers college, just keep patting yourself on the back, and hunker down in Southwestern Michigan,
and absolutely deny the existence of the rest of the state and continue to keep our Alma Mater a "Great Secret ".

Eliminating alumni dues and calling everyone a "Family"?, may serve some self absorbed purpose, but beyond that................,
"Let's not stray out of the "BIG (Kalamazoo) VALLEY" !

If it wasn't for the Athletic Department, no one on this side of the state would know WMU exists!

RE: Alumni Association.
I made the mistake of playing in the SE MI alumni golf outting. Played in it two years straight. Probably the worst organized event of its kind I've ever attended. Our foursome won the event, and for our efforts received a SLEEVE of golfballs 03-weeping

The worst score in the event won a WMU leather jacket XXXL. The lady didn't want it and I bought it off her for $20. Ended up giving it Brian Sniders dad, the only guy I know who could fit in it.

Bottom line, if your chapter wants to be taken seriously you and the association have got to do a better job of presenting/selling yourself in these events. The guy running it did the best he could, but you really need some people with serious connections and organizational skills.

We'll do better than that !

We'll do away with Chapters, Golf Outings in SE Michigan, etc, etc,
call everyone a FAMILY ?, and keep total control in Kalamazoo !

Case closed!!

RE: Alumni Association.
Interesting take. Our Denver chapter is pretty much non existent. Had a gathering at Brooks a year or so ago, that went well, but otherwise, nada.
