Dear Alumni Councilors,
The 211th meeting of the Dartmouth Alumni Council will be held in Hanover on October 22–24, 2015. We invite all Alumni Councilors to join us for plenary sessions, the Alumni Awards Gala, and the opportunity to interact with your fellow councilors, current students, faculty, and College representatives. We hope that you will be able to attend this exciting program. The meeting will commence on Thursday afternoon with an event with students, sponsored by the Council’s Professional Development Committee, an orientation session for new councilors, and the opening dinner. The session runs through Saturday at 12:30 p.m..
The registration form and preliminary schedule are posted online. The registration deadline is October 1, 2015. Dress for the weekend is casual, with business wear recommended for Friday night’s Alumni Awards dinner.
Please note the process to submit resolutions to the Alumni Council for consideration. If a Councilor or group of Councilors wishes to propose a Resolution to be voted upon by the Council Members, such Resolution must be delivered to the President of the Council or the Director of Alumni Leadership no later than 30 days before the start of the next Alumni Council session. Any Resolution that requires a vote will be discussed in a Friday plenary session of the next Alumni Council weekend. However, if a vote on a Resolution is time sensitive, as determined by the Executive Committee, then the Executive Committee may conduct an electronic vote by councilors on a Resolution between meetings without it being discussed in a plenary session. Please email any proposed resolutions to Alumni Council president Jennifer Avellino ’89 or me by September 22 if you would like to have a resolution voted upon at the 211th meeting of the Alumni Council.
The Alumni Council’s Executive Committee encourages you to communicate with your constituency to gather their feedback in preparation for the upcoming meeting. In the next week, we will send you a pre-meeting template prepared by the Alumni Council’s Communications Committee containing highlights of the upcoming meeting. Please feel free to use this template or compose one yourself for distribution to your constituency before the 211th Alumni Council session. You can email your communications to Meg Ramsden and she will prepare and send your email to your constituency for you. As in the past, please forward all feedback that you receive from your constituents to the Alumni Liaison Committee at ALC@Dartmouth.Edu.
I hope you will be able to join us in Hanover in October.
Lynne Gaudet ’81
Director, Alumni Leadership
