November 15–17, 2018

The Alumni Service Committee meeting began with introduction of new and current members led by committee chair Rachel Bogardus Drew ’98. Members introduced themselves with their constituency and their employment. Victoria Gonin, deputy director of Alumni Relations, joined the meeting to talk about a cornerstone of Dartmouth’s 250th anniversary, a service initiative that aims to capture 250,000 hours of service by alumni, faculty, staff, and students. She asked the committee if they could help identify and promote the role of service chair to classes and clubs that do not currently have that role. The committee also voted to name the initiative. The committee then discussed the upcoming Alumni Day of Service to be held on May 4, 2019.  The committee agreed that promoting the Alumni Day of Service to alumni councilors, class and club presidents, newsletter editors, and webmasters would be a great way to reach a wider audience to host more service projects. The committee will begin working on outreach to those audiences.
