Dartmouth Class Presidents January 2011 E-Bulletin

Representatives to Alumni Council
Two items:

1.      If your class is replacing a representative to Alumni Council, please remember that the deadline to get the name of your nominated classmate to Alumni Relations is March 15, 2011. If you have questions, please contact me and/or Sarah Sinclair in Alumni Leadership.

2.      Chuck Sherman '66 and Kimberly Koontz Haring '96 have each put their name in the ring as candidates to represent the Class Presidents Association at Alumni Council. Thank you to them for volunteering. They each have shown strong leadership with their respective classes and a true devotion to the College. An online ballot will be sent to you next week so that you might let your preference of candidates be known. Please note that only Class Presidents can vote in this election.

You and your class treasurer should note that the third and final paper dues mailing for the year via the college is approaching. Letters need to be to me by February 1, 2011. These letters will be in classmates hands by March 15, 2011. If you have questions about this or any aspect of dues participation, please feel free to contact me.

The Class of 1944 - Media Savvy
Penn Frost '44 is his class newsletter editor, webmaster and president. At age 89,  he is an inspiration to many with his steady stream of informative, entertaining and technologically savvy class communications. It turns out that his reach goes beyond Dartmouth. Alan Parker of the Toronto Sun chose to spotlight Penn in his recent blog posting - I urge you to check this out:http://alumni.dartmouth.edu/News.aspx?id=402

Recommending a Potential Student?
The college appreciates the insights shared about potential students via alumni recommendations. The Admissions Office is making the process of recommendations easier for all with the creation of an online form. http://www.dartmouth.edu/~interviewers/alumni-rec/ Please share news of this with your classmates.

The 2011 CAR
The 2011 Class Activity Report is now available for data entry. Alumni Relations does not make a push on this until the summer but some class presidents like to input information as the events of the year unfold. You may find the CAR and instructions at:http://car2.dartmouth.org/fmi/iwp/cgi?-db=Dartmouth_CAR&-loadframes

With best wishes for the New Year!
