MizzouNYC recently attended the Alumni Leadership Weekend at the MU campus where individuals from Mizzou alumni chapters from all over the world came to learn, share, and work towards the greater good of MAA. Each chapter sent representatives to attend this energizing event where Mizzou Alumni chapters focused on the “One Mizzou” theme to strengthen our contributions to our alma mater.
MizzouNYC was recognized as a Capstone Chapter Award winner due to our yearlong efforts to engage alumni, which enables us to give scholarships to New York students attending MU.
It was a weekend filled with awesome speakers, great networking, and an MU tailgate and football game to top of the wonderful festivities. Friday consisted of several sessions with speakers and chapter round table events. We heard from Mizzou Athletics and the Mizzou Botanic Garden, as well as shared chapter successes with our fellow volunteers and discussed the upcoming Mizzou 175th Anniversary. In the afternoon, we got the privilege to recognize Chancellor Deacon and hear from University Advancement. That evening we attended a special reception where we recognized our volunteers of the year.
It was a fantastic leadership weekend that definitely energized our chapter and set us up for success in the upcoming year for Mizzou Alumni.
