Annual Meeting Party
The Alumni Association holds one "general membership" meeting per year, the Annual Meeting, usually in early June.
The 2014 Annual Meeting Party was held Friday, June 13 from 6:00-9:30 pm at The Petroleum Club of Shreveport. A theme of "Celebrate the 60s" was carried out in costumes, table decor and vintage photographs. Alumni enjoyed seeing the transition of the Association's logo from 1967 to the new LSU System purple-and-gold-Geaux-font version.
The Distinguished Alumni Award winner and Circle of Excellence Award winners are recognized at this event. Retiring Alumni Board Directors also receive their service awards. During the brief business meeting, we welcome Officers and Directors, listen to remarks from LSUS students or recent graduates, and enjoy dinner and door prizes. The evening offers an excellent opportunity for fellowship and networking. Dues-paying Association members receive invitations and other alumni are welcome for a per-person fee. For more information, call 318-797-5190 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Alumni Association hosts a reception for graduates, faculty and alumni before the Fall and Spring Commencement Services. Alumni Board Directors and other alumni serve as volunteers.
The Association Board of Directors meets at least three times during the year in addition to the Annual Meeting. Directors also serve on committees which meet separately to support and manage various events and projects for the University.
