Alumni Leadership weekend


Alumni Leadership weekend

Think Stowe, and you’re thinking snow. That’s exactly what the UVM Alumni Association leaders conjured up for their annual leadership retreat Feb. 1-3 at the Stoweflake Mountain Resort.

In what is fast becoming a bona fide UVM winter tradition, the Alumni Association scheduled a weekend of serious-minded strategic planning combined with fun on the slopes. The weekend was held in conjunction with the UVM Carnival in Stowe, with the Catamounts coming out on top.

UVM Alumni Association president Ted Madden ’92 presided at the confab, for which some had traveled from as far as California. UVM President Thomas Sullivan addressed the opening session, giving special recognition to the importance of the Alumni Association in UVM’s future. And the leaders discussed plans to roll out the Association’s new membership initiative. See for more details.

Former UVMAA Presidents Honored
A highlight was recognition of the UVM Alumni Association’s past presidents over more than a century. Four were in attendance at Stowe—
Meg Guzewicz ’73 (2008-2010);
Tom Amidon ’61 (1998-2000);
Skip Beitzel ’76 (1990-1992);
and Peter Bibeau ’55 (1978-1980).

Helping Vermonters
The Alumni Association also announced a $60,000 contribution to the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund—$1 on behalf of each of its 30,000 Vermont alumni, matched by an anonymous UVM grad.
