From your Alumni Association President
If you're a new alum or previous Charter Oak graduate unaware of the important primary
role of the College's Alumni Association, allow me to briefly explain. Simply, the
Association, through its nationwide network of members, strives to spread the word
of Charter Oak's position as a key institution of higher education that provides affordable,
online degree completion opportunity for adult learners.
We are always in search of alumni eager to share the positive aspects of their Charter
Oak learning experiences with prospective students. Of course, every organization
requires a 'steering' committee and, in essence, that is the function of our Alumni
Board. We encourage dedicated individuals to join the Board and we welcome volunteers
to play important roles in developing and promoting Association functions designed
to enhance the Charter Oak image. It is not necessary that you reside in Connecticut
to participate. Our teleconferencing capabilities place you in the 'same room' with
your fellow alums allowing for a valuable exchange of ideas.
There are other means through which to remain in touch with your alma mater and fellow
alumni. The College's Discussion Board and a newly-created Alumni Network on LinkedIn allow you to establish constructive, long term relationships with your fellow alumni
and to share ideas and opinions on a variety of College and non-College-related issues.
Please, participate in our Association in any way you're able. Our alumni are one
of the College's most important assets. We welcome your input at all times, and we,
in turn, strive to keep you informed about Charter Oak throughout the year using e-mail
and our Web site.
Please feel free to contact Nancy Taylor, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations and
Corporate Recruitment, with your questions, comments and innovative ideas. You can
contact her at (860) 515-3863 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
