Warwick residents Pamela Greene, ’90, and Meredith Strokes Calcagni, ’04, will serve as board members of Providence College’s National Alumni Association Board of Governors for 2012-13.
The association was instituted in 1924, one year after the first graduating class at PC. The association consists of 36 clubs and chapters across the country, with membership spanning more than six decades of graduates. They come from diverse backgrounds and hold a wide array of positions within various industries.
The Association’s mission has several objectives:
To foster a spirit of association among alumni and provide opportunities for alumni to develop a life-long relationship to PC by encouraging camaraderie through College activities, religious and educational programs, and community service.
To assist and support alumni through recognized clubs, affinity groups and chapters, or other groups in their integral role in continuing the bonds with alumni and in promoting the College traditions to current and potential students.
To work with the College alumni, student body, faculty and staff when appropriate to strengthen and advance the distinctive Dominican and Catholic identity of the College and otherwise further the mission of the College.
To assist the Office of Institutional Advancement in its expansion of the giving and endowment programs.
The Association plans a variety of programs and opportunities for alumni to network, based on Six Pillars of Engagement: Celebration of our Catholic and Dominican Identity; Community Service; Career Networking; Cultural and Educational Camaraderie; and Young Alumni and Current Students.
