The UNT Alumni Association hosted the first two of its inaugural Fall Regional Receptions in October. These events focused on two of the largest concentrations of UNT alumni — in Dallas and Collin counties — and provided a great atmosphere for alumni to reconnect with each other and UNT.
More than 300 alumni showed up to network and hear an update on the university from President Neal Smatresk at the Dallas County event, held at the Belo Mansion, and the Collin County event, held at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano.
"The reception at Gleneagles was a huge success," says Dave Gorman ('93), president of the Collin County alumni chapter. "This event represented our broad, diverse alumni base well and is a great building block for future alumni programming."
Rob McInturf, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association, says alumni have asked for more programming and events that allow them to network with each other in the areas where they live.
"Based on the feedback we received from the alumni survey we sent out earlier this year, we have incorporated these alumni regional events as part of our strategic plan," McInturf says. "And we are planning more regional events for the spring."
Watch for future events on the UNT Alumni Association's website at untalumni.com or its Facebook and Twitter pages. Alumni can select the regional event that best fits their schedule and location.
