As president of the UH Alumni Association, I am pleased with the accomplishments of UHAA and our 39 alumni chapters, and look back on this past year with a feeling of pride for all that has taken place. We also look forward to the activities that are planned for 2013. The UH Alumni Association supports the University of Hawai‘i and we encourage you to be an active member. There are many ways to get involved through our alumni programs and chapter events.
In May, we are having our annual Distinguished Alumni Awards dinner where alumni and friends will join together to honor five deserving individuals who have made outstanding contributions to their professions and community, and have committed themselves to advancing the values and goals of the University of Hawai‘i and ensuring improvement in the quality of life for future generations.
The University of Hawai‘i has successful alumni all over the world. An alumni association is only as strong as its alumni and friends. I am thankful for the opportunity to represent so many of you and for the support you provide to our alma mater.
