At the December Advisory Board meeting of the School of Accounting, members agreed to move forward with plans to launch a new Accounting Alumni Affinity Council in 2007.
Each firm represented on the Board will select two School of Accounting alumni who work in their respective firms to sit on the Steering Committee, which will meet in 2007 to develop the purpose and vision for the new group.
“I’m quite excited to be working with the School of Accounting’s board members and with Mireya Fonseca, the School of Accounting’s assistant director of external relations, to develop this special group,” said Monique Catoggio, director of alumni and partner relations in the college. “Because the majority of our accounting alumni work for local firms, we will be able to target our communication and outreach to them through this affinity group. I have no doubt that, in time, the college and the School of Accounting will benefit tremendously from the group’s work.”
To become involved in the development of this special group, please contact Catoggio at (305) 348-4227 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
