Alumni eNewsletter: Gallaudet to have booths at NAD Conference and DeafNation Expo (Archives)
National Association of the Deaf (NAD)
With Gallaudet being a Diversity Sponsor at the 53rd Biennial National Association of the Deaf (NAD) conference in Phoenix, Ariz., July 5-9, the Office of Alumni Relations has been assisting in organizing events for alumni. The office staff hopes you will not only join them at these events and bring on the Gallaudet spirit, but also spread the word to Gallaudet alumni about these events.
Here is what has been planned:
Both Alumni Relations and the Gallaudet University Alumni Association (GUAA) will have a booth, so be sure to come visit in the exhibit area at the Phoenix Convention Center, especially if you have a burning question you would like to ask about updates at Gallaudet, the GUAA Election for the 2016-2020 GUAA Board of Directors, the status of your membership, or just to say hi. There will also be booths by both Admissions and the Clerc Center.
On Thursday, July 7, come support Gallaudet as students compete in the College Bowl, Wear your Gallaudet colors and show the others who rocks! Shakers will be provided so you can revive the alumni spirit as you cheer on Gallaudet.
On Friday morning, July 8, Gallaudet is sponsoring a breakfast from 7 - 8 a.m. for alumni and friends in the Grand Ballroom at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. There will be a short program where you will have an opportunity to meet President Cordano, and win a few door prizes while fueling up for the busy day ahead of you.
If you have any questions about any of these events, please feel free to stop by our booth in the exhibit area.
DeafNation World Expo
The DeafNation World Expo will be held at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. The alumni relations office plans to have a booth along with the Admissions office. Alumni representting the Riverside (California) GUAA Chapter along with GUAA Board Member - West Region, Jennifer Kononenko, '00 & G-'03, will man the booth since the alumni relations staff will be at the NAD conference covering the booth there among other events.
Bring on that strong Gallaudet spirit by stopping by both booths to say hi, receive updates, and/or to donate.
