The State of the Alumni Association from the President

We are nearing the end of fiscal year 2013-2014, and what a year it has been! My three year term as president is also coming to a close and I would like to fill you in on some of the accomplishments of the board. Since 2011, we have aligned the Alumni Association's strategic plan with the university's strategic plan, and by doing so, we have ensured a promising future for our students and alumni. We have also refined our volunteer committee structure, the board application process, and produced record numbers for event attendance in several areas.

In September, I will pass my gavel to Michael Tappy, '78 to lead the future efforts of the Alumni Association and I will take on the role of Past President. In the meantime, as our fiscal year comes to a close on June 30, I encourage you to participate in supporting our alma mater in ways that are meaningful to you. This can take the form of financial support,event attendance or volunteerism in the coming year.

I also encourage you to consider applying for the Alumni Association Board of Directors, or an affiliated committee. Our university is dependent on the future leadership it alumni.

Sincerely,
Julie Bulson, '99 & '07
President
GVSU Alumni Association
