Introducing Board Member: Herb Bowie

The University of Michigan Club of Seattle is so excited to present our 2019-2020 Board to the larger Alumni community here in Seattle. Our volunteer Board Members come from all different backgrounds but all share one thing in common - an unwavering passion for the University of Michigan! We hope that you’ll say hello to any and all of the Board Members that you may see at local events and join the Alumni Association in celebrating our shared experiences at Michigan.

Herb Bowie graduated from Michigan with his B.A. in English in 1973. While at U-M he worked on The Michigan Daily for the Arts section, writing reviews of rock music. One of his favorite Michigan memories is meeting film director Frank Capra when Capra came to speak at a festival of his films organized by one of Herb’s best friends. Despite his major, Herb went on to a successful career in Information Technology, starting with sorting punched cards and concluding with a role as a Manager of Engineering Systems at Boeing. Herb’s son also attended Michigan, starting in 2005, which led to Herb’s involvement with the U-M Club of Seattle when he moved here in 2006. Herb’s initial interest in serving on the club’s board was to help with the club website, but after a few years he was elected to the presidency, a role he filled for close to a decade. Herb now serves on the board as Past President ex officio.

If you have questions about the club, or suggestions for future events, feel free to drop Herb a note at herb@umseattle.org
