A Message from Our Alumni Circle Co-Chair

I am thrilled to introduce you to our Alumni Circle which is a committee of 14 volunteers who have been elected to support the Academy’s programs and services to its more than 3000 alumni around the globe. The Alumni Circle's mission is to engage former students in new ways, so please provide us with feedback and suggestions for how we can work more effectively. In the future, we will be working to expand this section of the site, you will be able to find out more about the other Alumni Circle committee members and the gifts and talents they bring to this community; as well as our activities and programs planned around the country.

Please tell us how you want to reconnect with the Academy.  In this time of limited resources, alumni are needed more than ever—to advise prospective students, young alumni, plan alumni programs, invest in the ongoing work of the Academy and represent the school around the world. We look forward to working with you and other alumni to increase the Alumni Circle's sphere of influence.  And, we encourage you to keep in touch with the alumni network on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
