Jan. 30, 2013

Steve Johnson Executive Director University of Idaho Alumni AssociationDear University of Idaho Alumni and Friends:

We are in the middle of planning and staging numerous winter and spring activities for our alumni. Events will be staged nationwide and we encourage you to watch Vandal Vibe for upcoming details. Our gatherings will include events around the country, including our Annual Alumni trek to the Arizona desert in late March.

Last week during our "Vandal Week in Boise" we had successful meetings of the U-Idaho Alumni Association board of directors, under the leadership of president Lou Aldecoa ’76. This group funds and administers our alumni association award and recognition program and were able to participate in the Ada County Silver and Gold award reception along with more than 200 guests.
