Update 7 September 2011: There is now aÂ Charlottesville VMI Alumni page with contact information and information on the monthly happy hour meetings.
I am probably the worst Alumni Chapter president in the country.
At the urging of an alumnus from the Class of 49B, I’m attempting to organize/mobilize the Charlottesville chapter of the VMI alumni association. If an alumnus 50 years out is interested in getting alumni together I figure I, 10 years out, can do my part.
I started this discussion on LinkedIn, but thought it warranted posting here. The times I have tried to organize local alumni the consensus has generally been – if you want your VMI fix, you go to Lexington.
Over the years, I have tried to (re)invigorate the Charlottesville Chapter of the VMI Alumni Group; I’m going to try it again.
I’m going to shoot for a January gathering of the Charlottesville VMI Alumni.
If you’re interested, please fill in this form. I’m shooting for a January gathering, most likely a happy hour.
And please send it to your fellow VMI folks in the Charlottesville area. If you have any questions, please contact me anytime – 434-242-7140 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the bonds,
Jim Duncan, ’98
Any fellow VMI alumni in the Charlottesville area who want to help, please let me know.
