This spring, the UNT Alumni Association kicked off its first Young Professionals Luncheon, a quarterly luncheon series open to young alumni hosted by the association's Young Professionals group. The event, held at the Park City Club in Dallas, drew more than 100 young professionals and alumni under age 40 from across the North Texas region. The luncheon series is hosted by the UNT Young Professionals and serves as a networking event for all UNT alumni to showcase the ways that UNT and alumni in Dallas-Fort Worth impact the region.
"There is nothing more potent than the power of people who network and believe in something. UNT's alumni network has 237,000 members in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and there is a great advantage in everyone coming together to support each other and UNT," says President Neal Smatresk, who gave a keynote speech and announced that he and his wife had become lifetime UNT Alumni Association members.
Alumni also can stay connected through the Alumni Today directory -- an easy and fast way to track down old school friends. This spring, the association will work with Harris Connect to update contact information of alumni around the world. UNT grads will be contacted by phone, email and mail to verify their contact and career information. The new directory will publish in 2015 to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the university.
