OPEN FORUM FOR ALL ALUMNI
The Roosevelt Alumni Association is sponsoring an open forum for all Roosevelt Alumni on Sunday, November 8, 2015, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Board of Directors wants to solicit ideas and input for the associations’ next decade. It is imperative that we determine the path the alumni want us to travel in the future of the organization to insure that it is keeping with their wishes. Without the guidance of our alumni it is difficult to make sound decisions for the future stability of the association. A more detailed outline and agenda will be made in the September newsletter, as well as on this website. It will run the gamut from organizational structure, events, scholarship, newsletter, luncheons and website. Your comments on all these subjects will be welcome. The Forum will take place at Royal Orleans on Telegraph Road and will include free refreshments, snacks, and a cash bar for those who might wish an adult beverage. Mark your calendars. WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE FORUM.
GOT SOME IDEAS, COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS ? EMAIL THEM TO JOHN HEGEDUS, @ email@example.com,
