I am the incoming 2012–2013 president of your Emory Alumni Board, a 1999 graduate of the School of Law, and an attorney with Piedmont Law Group here in Atlanta. Your Emory Alumni Board is in place to represent our alumni at the university level, to develop and disseminate policy, and oversee the activities of the Emory Alumni Association (EAA). We are charged with expanding the vibrant network of alumni worldwide, fostering career and personal engagement, and enhancing communications to be more strategic and targeted.
One mission of the EAA is to connect alumni no matter where they live in the world. With chapter events in more than forty-four cities globally, there is a world of possibilities, with opportunities to volunteer on a chapter leadership level, to participate in educational enrichment and lifelong learning activities, to host or participate in Emory Cares International Day of Service on November 10, and to socialize with new and old Emory friends.
As alumni, you are also invited to give back to the university in other ways, beginning with sharing your professional expertise with a student or graduate. We also urge you to consider making Emory your philanthropic priority as we enter the final phase of this historic Campaign Emory and move toward our goal of raising $1.6 billion to enrich the university’s commitment to excellence.
I am honored to invite you to take an active role in a thriving alumni organization 114,000 members strong.
