UWAA President's Message

Fellow alumni, we are halfway through our 120th year of service to alumni and students, and I am pleased that more alumni are becoming members of the association each day. We are moving towards our goal of 20,000 members by June 30, 2015. UWAA membership is meaningful and never more so than when you have the opportunity to participate in significant decisions that advance the association. In March, we shared with you a plan to restructure the governance model, an outcome of a year-long strategic planning process. Incident to this evaluation, the UWAA’s Board of Directors has written and proposed a restatement of its bylaws, designed to strengthen the governance function and expand outreach to our alumni throughout the world.
