ASI Alumni Chapter News
Associate Students, Inc. is one step closer in reaching its charter for its newly formed alumni chapter. Acting chairs, professional staff and former and current student leaders convened in October to review important factors needed to become an official entity under the Cal Poly Pomona Alumni Association.
At the Oct. 15 meeting, chapter bylaws were the topic of interest. They had a thorough discussion on how to define an ASI alumnus and concluded that anyone can join the chapter and become either an active, affiliated, or honorary member once they have joined the Cal Poly Pomona Alumni Association. Members will be invited to attend events and activities provided by ASI and Cal Poly Pomona. Members will also stay connected with the university by receiving ASI's new Thrive magazine, the university's PolyTrends and Panorama magazines, and Poly@lumni electronic newsletter. Other incentives include discounted insurance/amusement park tickets and networking capabilities.
For those alumni who have not been on campus in years, joining the chapter will give them the opportunity to see the changes made in ASI and the university.
I'm so excited to be on campus and be involved again, said Deanna Cangialosi, who served as the senator-at-large Greek council during the '92-'93 term. As she walked through the halls of the new Bronco Student Center , she added, It's great reconnecting with old friends and building stronger bonds with them.
The next chapter meeting will take place on Dec. 3 at the Bronco Student Center from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Questions and comments can be directed to ASI Alumni Programs at email@example.com or (909) 869-5059.
