Nominations Open for 2014 Alumni Club Board Positions

In 2014, we encourage members to take an active role and consider running for one of the ten open seats on the Alumni Club Board.  As terms of tenured members currently serving on the board expire at the start of 2014, some have chosen not to run for re-election.   We are reaching out to all members, asking each to consider volunteering for one of the leadership and/or support roles in the alumni organization.

Nominations are being accepted for 2014 board positions now through February 15, 2014.  Ballots for member voting will be included in the March Connections newsletter.  As in the past, an alternative electronic ballot is also published on-line.

Roger Carpenter Will Not Seek Re-election as Club President

While this may come as a surprise to many of you, I have decided to not stand for re-election on our Board of Directors next year.  It has been my pleasure to be of service to Osco and Sav-on associates as an Alumni Club Board Member since my official retirement from active work in 1998.  During my first three years on the board Tork Fuglestad was our President and I was the Hospitality Chairman.  This involved organizing and setting up our semi-annual social events in the Chicago area.  I put together several early December banquets with a Christmas party theme and some really fun spring luncheons.  We eventually gravitated away from the Christmas functions since folks were so busy during that time frame. But they were pleasurable events and we had a great time putting them together.
