Our alumnae committee is coming up with some wonderful ideas! I especially like the newsletter doing features on teachers.

I ask all alumnae to consider subscribing to the alumnae committee updates (send your contact information here). If you decide later on that you’d rather not receive any mailings, just let us know and we’ll remove you from our list.

DECEMBER 3, 2008

Attendance:  Torie Daves, Stacey Naito, Toni Boim, Stuart Posin, Marcia Berman
E-committee: Missy Stalcup, Cathy Lydon, April Adams
Absent:  Laura McKinzie, Kathy Griffin, Carrie O’Brien, Mindy Molinary, Toni Heebner

1.    Chair Report:
A.     Mailings:

  • Torie reported that the postcard and letters were sent out. Thank you to everyone who addressed envelopes.
  • This week an email version of the letter will go out.
  • Next week a follow up e-mail will go out asking if anyone is interested to join either the committee or e-committee. Marcia mentioned that we need to work on acquiring more alumnae e-mail addresses. Stuart said he will try to locate some. Torie will ask Bonnie Schell Wren if a message can put posted on the Argyll web site.
  • To date, the mailing resulted in 3 new e-committee members, Missy Stalcup ’71, Cathy Lydon ’72, and April Adams ’76. They will receive the agenda and minutes and have the opportunity to respond, which will be reflected in the revised minutes.

2.    Outreach
A.     Holiday Card/Calendar of Events:

  • We will be mailing holiday cards to alumnae with a calendar of events included. Kathy, Toni, Stacey, Torie and Mindy will be hand signing and addressing them.
  • Toni suggested we include an insert asking for e-mail addresses.
  • Marcia suggested we also e-mail individual classes asking for help locating missing alumnae much like we do for the reunions.

B.    Alumnae Programs:

  • Founder’s Day – Will be held on Thursday, February 5th. Torie isn’t sure how many alumnae will be able to attend during the day. She suggested we have a lunch the following Saturday and include the teachers. We can have a mini-dedication ceremony and tour the gallery exhibit.
  • Stuart suggested we invited everyone to share a memory and videotape it.
  • Theresia Cunningham will help contact teachers.

C. Career Guidance – We would like to consider sponsoring an event where alums from Argyll and Campbell Hall offer a “Career Night” for high school students.  Booths could be set up representing different professions.
D.  Newsletter – It was decided that we would do two newsletters per year.  Contents will include articles and pictures from events and information on upcoming ones.  Missy suggested we do Spotlight articles on teachers.
E.  Happy Hours – It was decided that we will hold 3 Happy Hour gatherings in various cities based on where there is a concentration of alumnae.  Marcia will research the database to determine the locations.  Generally, we will hold one in Ventura and two in Orange County.  We will have high tea in Pasadena.  The remainder of the calendar was reviewed (see attached).
F. Future Events –  Torie suggested sending our a survey this summer to ask alumnae what type of events they would like to see for next year, and if they would like them to be for alums-only, couples or family.
3.     Technology
A.     There is now a link to the Argyll website from the Campbell Hall web site.
B.    We are going to look into teleconferencing for anyone who would like to participate in the meetings but can’t make it in person.
