The Seven Keys to Becoming a Great U-M Alumni Club Leader
Who Pays for All This Stuff? Who Pays? U-M Seattle Logo We had a great BBQ last year for U-M students interning in Seattle over the summer. I was talking to as many interns and young alums as I could, and at one point one of them asked me, with what seemed to be a note of amazement, who was paying for all of this? It was a good question, of course, and I was happy to answer it, but it made me realize that there may be others out there as well who need some help connecting the dots. image-on-left

A Note From Your Club President Join Today! U-M Club of Seattle

Just a quick note from your Seattle Club President to impart a few important pieces of information.

  1. You’re not currently a member of the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan. I’ve noticed when greeting people at events that many people are honestly confused about their current membership status, so I thought it might be helpful to let you know where you stand.

  2. That’s OK. Our mission is to help connect all U-M alumni to each other and to our University, so you’re welcome to continue receiving our emails, attend all of our club events, and in general enjoy all of the benefits of being a proud Michigan alum living in the greater Seattle area.

  3. Membership makes all of this possible. Our local club gets its operating funds from the Alumni Association, based on the number of Association members we have in our region, and the Association in turn receives its operating funds from membership dues. Unlike many other alumni associations, ours is not dependent on its University for handouts, but instead is its own independent member-based organization. And while our local club is run entirely by volunteers like myself, it takes money to host our website, to run our mailing list, and to help defray the costs of many of our events.

  4. And membership means so much more. Your Alumni Association membership can be a gateway into a network of richer, deeper connections with Ann Arbor, with the University that you love, and with your fellow Wolverines.

  5. If you’d like to join the Association, we’re ready when you are. Just head on over to the Alumni Association’s Website.

  6. Enter the Promo Code of UNITE when joining or renewing. Using this promo code will maximize the local impact of your membership, and will credit our local club with additional funds that we will use to better serve our local U-M community.

If you have any other questions about membership you can take a look at the Membership Q&A on our website, or you can always shoot me a note.

And that’s it. I just wanted to send this quick, informative one-time message.

And now back to our regular programming.

Club Looking for Volunteers Find Out More Alumni Association Seattle

The U-M Club of Seattle is looking for some new volunteers, to help with several aspects of our club’s operations, and for possible participation on our board in the coming operating year. Board members are elected at our annual meeting in May, for terms starting in July. In particular, we are seeking a new club secretary, who will be responsible for documenting minutes of our monthly board meetings, and in general for ensuring that club records are kept up-to-date on our website.

Events to Suggest? Event Idea Alums Hiking Together at Twin Falls

Have any event ideas for local alums that you’d like to suggest? Our Club Board is always looking for new events that might be of interest to Wolverines in the greater Seattle area. Book Club? Community Service Opportunity? New Restaurant to check out? If you think it would be a fun way to connect with fellow Wolverines, then there’s a good chance we can find others who would be interested as well.

Wolverines with a Mission Find Out More Wolverine

From Ann Arbor to Seattle, Michigan alumni continue to be leaders in the community through both volunteering and their career paths. If you are involved with a local nonprofit or charity (or if you’d like to be) and would be interested in promoting an event or getting fellow alumni involved, contact Connor Wojciak (connor@umseattle.org) for more information.
