"Although few can physically return to their alma maters as often as they would like, they welcome opportunities to stay connected to their schools and their classmates. Alumni clubs and chapters help them to do so, and this book will serve as a great resource to those of us who run such programs." —Douglas S. Dibbert, President, General Alumni Association, University of North Carolina
