The Franklin & Marshall College Alumni Association Board of Directors works to advance the welfare of the College and its alumni.
Members of the Board volunteer their time and talent by attending three on-campus meetings each year and regular Committee and Board calls throughout the year, by leading and participating in College events on and off campus, by serving other volunteer organizations of the College, by mentoring current students, and by committing to give to the College annually.
Members of the Board have tremendous pride in the College and in their fellow alumni, and promote that pride to their fellow alumni and those in their communities at every opportunity.
Board Members are typically nominated and elected by the existing directors. Learn more here.
2020 End of Year Message from the Alumni Association President
Dear F&M Alumni,
I am nearing the 6th month of my term as your president, and I wanted to share a few things with you, and invite you to communicate with me as well. As we enter the winter, it is time again, for even more patience, resolve, and taking advantage of opportunities to support each other. This year, 2020, has been a challenge for all of us, and we will continue to engage virtually for now, as Covid-19 is once again on the rise in many of our communities.
Students, faculty, staff, and alumni have all shown great resilience this fall. Those on campus have shown respect for the protocols put in place for safety by the administration, and there have been very few covid cases. Students will head home for an extended winter break on November 20, and won’t return to campus until early February. The college is offering an option to take one class, virtually, in a January term for students who want to do so.
The Alumni Association Board continues to be a resource, with so much virtual on-demand programming. Most programs are also recorded for viewing by those who can’t zoom in for live events. Our first ever Virtual True Blue Weekend was a huge success, allowing many who could never attend in person to engage and enjoy the weekend’s vast and varied offerings. You can view the recorded and on-demand programs at fandm.edu/trueblueweekend.
We have also begun a series we are calling the Alumni F&Mily Forum. Our first discussion centered on what to do to help someone experiencing a mental health crisis. The recording is full of good information to keep in the back of your mind somewhere should you ever need to use it.
Our second activity will be held Wednesday, December 9th, featuring an alumni conversation with Joe Pritchett, F&M’s Director of the Faith and Meaning. Look for additional information via email and social media after Thanksgiving.
At this time of year, I would also like to ask if you would consider an end-of-year gift to our Alma Mater. Our college and our students can really use your help, and in this season of giving, we hope you will participate...and you will enjoy F&M swag with your donation.
Now more than ever, the world needs Diplomats.
As always, please feel free to share your ideas with me and our executive committee at email@example.com. While I can’t promise an immediate response, I do promise a response to every email received.
Wishing you all the best as 2020 begins to draw to a close, and sending wishes of good health, and staying safe in your corner of the world. I look forward to the time we can gather together again in person.
All the best,
Lisa Brooks '85
