As we have done each December for many years, the DPAA Board of Directors has published an Annual Report on the activities of the Alumni Association in 2019. The report was sent via postal mail to all DP alumni who have mailing addresses on file with the DP; a PDF version of the report is available by clicking here.
The DPAA regularly posts news about our alumni on the DPAA Facebook page DPAA Facebook page and emails news about the DP and DPAA several times each year. But in an effort to not lose touch with alumni who may not regularly follow the DPAA online, as well as to have a place each year to recognize and thank the alumni who have contributed to the DP and DPAA, we send this report, along with our annual membership appeal, at the end of each year.
2019 was an active year for the DPAA. The signature event was our second-ever alumni reunion on campus this past October, with nearly 250 alumni, guests and students in attendance. We also launched a new DP Alumni Hall of Fame, inducted an inaugural class of honorees, and presented the first-ever DP Young Alumni Award. We announced that longtime DP General Manager Eric Jacobs will be retiring in 2020, that the DP will hire a first-ever full-time Director of Development to elevate our fundraising efforts, and the formation of a student/alumni committee to define job descriptions and conduct searches for both positions. We selected Amy Gardner to replace Marty Siegel as President of the DPAA. And there’s more! Please click the link to read the PDF report if you didn’t receive it in the mail at the end of the year.
If you are a DP alum who did not receive the mailing, please email the DPAA with your current address, or simply click the “Join the DPAA” button on the right side of this website to enter your contact information to update what we have on file.
Feedback on the Annual Report, including suggestions for future editions or other communications you’d like to see from us, is welcome — just email dpaa@theDP.com.
