The SUNY ESF Alumni Association believes it is important to keep the connection between our college and recent graduates strong, continuous, and rewarding. Graduates Of the Last Decade, affectionately known as "GOLD", was created to represent the interests of alumni who have graduated over the past 10 years. The goal of GOLD is to help facilitate social, educational, and recreational activities geared toward recent graduates to expand the ESF alumni network. The GOLD group is always looking for more suggestions and members to continue developing this initiative. If you are interested in becoming more involved in GOLD, or joining the SUNY ESF Alumni Association, contact the alumni office at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on Facebook.
The Alumni Office is always looking to increase attendance at our events. The best way for us to do this is to get alumni involved in the planning of these events. If you are interested in becoming a contact person for your class, please notify the alumni office. The one comment that I usually hear at class reunions is "I had a great time, but I wish more people from my class would have been here." We attempt to do as much as possible to notify alumni of events that are on campus, or in their own area. However, nothing can replace the letter or phone call from a classmate that urges them to attend. I know most of you have busy schedules, but being a class leader is not a large time commitment. All we ask is that if you are planning to attend an event, contact friends and classmates and encourage their participation. If you would be interested in becoming more involved in the planning aspect, please contact Debbie Caviness at 315-470-6632 or email@example.com.
The ESF Alumni Association, together with the Admissions Office, has developed an Alumni Ambassador Program. If you would like to share your experience at SUNY-ESF with prospective students and their parents, please let us know. We are looking for alumni who would be able to represent the College at various fairs and college nights in your local area. The College is invited to far more College Fairs than we can possibly attend with staff members so we are looking to alumni to help us find prospective students. If you are interested in receiving further information, please contact Justin Culkowski at 315-470-6632 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
The ESF Alumni Board represents the interest of all alumni in matters that pertain to the Association as well as the College. The Board needs volunteers from a range of classes in order to best represent the interests of the alumni population. The position is held for two years. In order to serve on the Alumni Board, you must be a member in good standing: either a life member or a current dues payer. If you are interested in running for election to the Board, please contact the alumni office at email@example.com. The next election will be held in the Summer of 2010.
