Joan W. Lee, President
UMUC Alumni Association

Dear Fellow UMUC Alumni,

As your 2015–2017 UMUC Alumni Association President, I want to share how important connections truly are. The single biggest catalyst for success is interaction. While it is important to stay connected with your current network, it is also vitally important to cultivate emerging professional and personal relationships.

You are a member of a UMUC alumni community more than 185,000 strong—in all 50 states, as well as in 115 countries. I invite you to stay connected through volunteer service and social events. You can grow your professional network by attending UMUC Alumni events in your region, participating in Alumni webinars, and joining UMUC's social media community. Whether you prefer Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, or another social site, there are many ways to connect. These activities will expand your network nationally and globally.

I encourage you to stay connected with our UMUC Alumni community and expand your professional horizons. Do it today!

Best Wishes for Continued Success,

Joan W. Lee
UMUC Alumni Association President, 2015–2017
