Alumni Connections:
February 2010
Jen HaneDear ,
 
Thanks to those of you who participated in last month's volunteer program survey - we appreciate your feedback! For those of you who would like to get involved, there's still time to complete the survey online. We'll leave it open for your feedback through the end of the month.
 
We're also excited that so many of you have been able to join us for meetings at Roar on the Road. We were recently in Tampa, FL, and we'll be in Denver, CO and Kansas City, MO in the coming weeks. We value your feedback and thank you for your participation. Last year, we met over 800 of you at Alumni Association special events, and I think we're off to a great start in 2010!
 
Thank you again for your ongoing support,
 
Jennifer Hane
