SIS Alumni Society Builds Task Force

The SIS Alumni Society (SAS) needs your help! The group is forming a Task Force to address how to improve its ability to deliver meaningful programs and events to a larger cross section of alumni. To do so, the group needs the help and advice of alumni in order to devise a strategy to reach these goals. If you wish to be part of the task force, or would like to offer your suggestions, please contact Marci B. Carothers at mbc20@pitt.edu or 412-624-9473. Please note that you do not have to be in Western Pennsylvania to participate – task force meetings and planning sessions will utilize online meeting technologies. Please become a part of the future of the School of Information Sciences Alumni Society!
