Congratulations.

That doesn't change the fact that we are woefully out marketed in both areas.

Beginning.........

with a Membership Drive, nominal fees, issuing Membership Cards with chips,
to develop a more accurate, and up-to-date data base, would be a good initial step !

What do you think ?

Happy Homecoming !

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Hopefully, the progress made under President Montgomery's leadership for
improving the Alumni Association outreach and involvement will continue !
It's a good start.

What do you think ?

RE: Alumni Association.
SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER..............02-13-banana

and hopefully, more "Meet and Greets" with President Montgomery, and perhaps an introduction
to the new Alumni Association Director, and plans for continued inclusion of WMU Alumni in the future.

Perhaps, from time to time, President Montgomery could introduce WMU Department Heads to the Alumni Groups,
with the WMU Departments future plans and activities.

Heads of the Medical School, Law School, Business School, Education Department, Health Services, etc, even the
Football Coach, presentations would be a good start.

What do you think ?

There have been over 4,000 visits to the thread since our last posting.

RE: Alumni Association.
SUMMER IS REALLY HERE !
(and so is the HEAT !) COGS

Where are the WMU Alumni Engagement Acrivities ?

If it wasn't for the fact that there were several popular, and well attended
"meet and greets" in the Meteopolition Detroit area one might conclude that there was
no interest on the part of Metro Detroit WMU Alumni.
But it appears, that the lack of interest is in Kalamazoo.

Since there seemed to be a sincere interest in WMU activities on the part of President Montgomery,
perhaps he should be in charge of directing these successful "Meet and Greets".

Ever since the Alumni Activities were joined with the "money seekers", everything seemed to go down hill.
This organization/reorganization put the WMU Alumni Activities on the LOW PRIORITY LIST.

Given the views of these postings, there seems to be an active interest by WMU Alumni n these meetings.
The lack of consistency of these activities might lead one to believe that WMU Alumni were of little interest
to those persons "hanging out" in Heritage Hall, which was partly funded with WMU Alumni Dues, rather than
be expended on WMU Alumni Activities.

Perhaps our concerns should be directed to President Montgomery, and he could "Champion the Cause" for
REGULAR WMU Alumni Gatherings in Metro Detroit (excluding athletic events) !

Since the last posting, there have been over 7,000 views to this thread !
Someone must be interested and concerned with what's going on,OR what's not going on !

What do you think ?

We think that our concerns should go directly to President Montgomery.

RE: Alumni Association.
So... they put on several successful programs, but you're upset they aren't putting on any programs?

What exactly do you want to see the Alumni Association do on the East Side? I'm not necessarily picking their side, but you are talking out of both sides in your last post.
