Volunteering with the Club
Tom Sandlow AB'81, MBA'85, President of the Alumni Club of New York
Back in Chicago, it’s the beginning of a new school year at UChicago. While in New York, at the Alumni Club it’s the beginning of a different type of New Year. The Club’s new Board of Directors begins service this month. Hopefully, we bring the same optimism and energy to our roles as the new students arriving in Chicago. Several of the Club’s longest tenured and most dedicated Board of Director members are leaving the Club’s leadership this year.
On behalf of the Club and the Board, I’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for their service to Dalita Balassanian AB'01, President Emeritus; Sheldon Levy AB'09, Vice President Emeritus; Richard Brand, MBA'80; Adam Brunk, AB'08; Jonathan Honig, JD'82; and Catherine Matloub, JD'13. Through their efforts, these individuals have been essential to the Club’s success in bringing alumni and friends together as a community.
The new Board (listed in full here) is committed to building on the Club’s current activities with a focus on creating more opportunities for alumni and friends to engage with each other and University visitors from Chicago. Of course, the Club relies on many volunteers beyond the Board to support its activities. Volunteering is a great way to connect with fellow alumni with common interests.
If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to one of the Engagement Committee co-chairs (Jennifer Glickel AB'08 and Jessica Ansehl Steinberg AB'05).
