CASE ASAP District I

Hello, District 1!

Our district was well represented at the CASE ASAP 42nd Annual Network Convention. We had a number of student advancement organizations present while in the capital including Albertus Magnus College Student Alumni Association, University of Rhode Island Student Alumni Association, Northeastern University Student Alumni Association, University of Connecticut Student Alumni Association, University of Massachusetts Amherst Student Alumni Association, and Fairfield University Student Alumni Association and Stags Give Back. The University of Hartford Student Alumni Association received a national Outstanding External Program award and Stonehill College Student Alumni Association received an Outstanding Organization award. Congratulations to both groups! Finally, a huge thank you to Jenna Cote and the University of Rhode Island Student Alumni Association for graciously hosting the convention.

Get ready for more information regarding the 2016 CASE ASAP District 1 Conference. Our friends at Bentley University are planning a great weekend Feb. 27-28. Register today! 

I also strongly urge everyone to plan on participating in Student Engagement & Philanthropy Month in Feb. 2016! Select any date in Feb. and plan one or more activities that educates students on the importance of philanthropy while highlighting the important role they play in your institution. Albertus Magnus College, University of Rhode Island, Bryant University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Fairfield University, are among the many who will be participating!  Register your organization today!

Finally, CASE ASAP 2016 District Award applications will be due on Friday, Dec.4, 2015. Apply online today!

Awesome job to everyone for all your hard work this past year, and I am excited to hear what programming the schools in District 1 are planning for the upcoming year. In addition, I encourage you all to take full advantage of your CASE ASAP membership. I hope you have a great semester, and if I can be of assistance to your student advancement organization, please let me know.
