Alumni Association.
Just received a letter from them that they're discontinuing their dues, that all alumni are now part of the alumni association and it will now be called WMUFAMILY.

I like the feel and the idea, cheeses me off that i bought a lifetime membership though! 01-lauramac2

The new site will be http://www.MyWMU.com

RE: Alumni Association.
I got the same letter; thanking me for my paid participation in the Alumni Association, and somewhat apologetically notifying me of the new free arrangement.

All in all, it's a positive. We need to have a feeling of inclusiveness in our community, for as long as I can remember, it's never felt that way. Good start.

I got it too. The new VP of Development is doing some excellent things for WMU.

RE: Alumni Association.
I was paying dues for a few years, mostly because Jamie Jeremy talked me into it, but I stopped last year because I didn't feel I was getting much out of it. Plus, I'm still paying back my loans and while I'm making enough to afford an iPhone (if I so chose), I spend enough money on charitable endeavors anyway.

RE: Alumni Association.
I was a member but stopped paying dues a few years back cause their online pay website was beyond ridiculous. Forgot my user name and password and there was no way to retrieve it. Directed me to email/call a POC but I never heard back from anyone using either method. So I said hell with it.

RE: Alumni Association.
Yeah I like the concept of Family....they quote there are 175,000 graduates. I've often thought about that and wondered what would happen if some bold president would put out the call for 40,000 of them to show up at Waldo. I'd like to see that just one time.

The alumni association did some good things, but the look and feel was it was just another fund raising shtick rather than a genuine call for people to be part of the Family. This new approach is the best of both worlds, everybody is in but you can still send a few bucks if that rings your bell.

HAHAHAHAHA.... this is rich coming from someone like you.

"We need to have a feeling of inclusiveness in our community"

Look in a mirror lately? Look at my signature lately? Why don't you heed your own advice?

"for as long as I can remember, it's never felt that way"

Gee, I wonder why that is, as long as you've been around it's never felt that way? Hmm... 03-idea

Don't get petty, it just comes off bad. I certainly have my issues with DB, but most of them are over real events or substance. Judging a person based on a few web board posts makes you look mean and angry. I'd avoid this one.

There are a few people on this board who love posting to see the reaction from people, myself included.
