Executive Committee Update
We’re excited to announce a change in leadership of the 99 Executive Committee. In early August, Michelle Sweetser was elected President by a vote of the full Executive Committee, for a term beginning August 2006 and ending at our 10th reunion in June 2008.
Since graduation Michelle has shown unfailing dedictation to the 99 class through taking on and almost single-handedly sustaining the class news- letter since its inception, serving as 5th reunion co-chair, and participating in numerous other committees. She is active in the Class Officers Association as President of the Class Newsletter Editors Association and through that role serves on Alumni Council as well. Following graduation, Michelle worked in Alumni Relations at Dartmouth as an Assistant Director and currently works in the Department of Special Collections and UniversityArchives at Marquette University. We are confident that Michelle will inspire us with her thoughtful leadership, unflagging energy to accomplish the task, and her genuine amiability. Congrats Michelle!
At left is a list of current Executive Committee members and officers. Melissa Maggio officially left the presidential post in July. We would like to thank Melissa for her service to the class. No other changes have occurred. Questions about the election may be directed to the nominating committee: Dave Dookeeram, Jeff Fine, and Adrienne Wilson Wagner.
Other Executive Committee members are engaged in a number of subcommittees, including the Class Dues Committee, chaired by Jeff Fine and composed of Caroline Kaufmann, Jessica Kelle , Emily Mulvoy Kornega , Karen Mangold, Melissa Rikard, Michelle Sweetser, and Adrienne Wilson Wagner; and the Class Project Committee, chaired by Dave Dookeeram, and including Danni Downing, Jeff Fine, Michelle Sweetser, and Adrienne Wilson Wagner.
We hope you have seen in our Executive Committee meeting minutes that we are embarking on exciting new class projects and are always looking for ideas and feedback. If you are interested in serving the class and the College
no matter how limited your time - or you have ideas that you would like to see
the class undertake, e-mail Michelle at her alumni account (mlg@dartmouth. org).
