It’s been a busy summer in the LCN nation, and no, I’m not talking about the endless late nights at White or Pier 7. Your Executive Board has been preparing for an ambitious agenda. Here’s an update for a year of active engagement and where we put you, the membership, first.
Staying current with LCN news requires a reliable online presence with up-to-date information. To that end, we’ve recruited a dedicated member to be our new LCN webmaster, Mr. Mazen Chami (Stony Brook and NYU alumnus). He’s an expert programmer with several years of experience. He has already taken the initiative and updated the mylcn.org website! Be on the lookout for his roll call on Facebook and Twitter, @mylcn. Volunteer opportunities are available; please contact Mazen at [email protected]org if you are interested in joining the Website Improvement Committee (no experience necessary). This committee will require 4 to 5 hours of your time in total all year.
It’s also that time of year to renew your University Lebanese Club (ULC) membership. Subscribing early, in September and October, accomplishes two important things: first, it updates our online ULC officer database. An updated database allows you to easily connect and collaborate with other ULCs nationwide. Second, it gives you a discounted price to more of our events throughout the year.
We’re also making a concerted effort to subscribe our alumni. In 2011 we rolled out our alumni track workshops at the Oakland University convention and we’re continuing to integrate and strengthen our LCN alumni network. We’ve hosted several successful alumni and young professional events across the country, and we’re proud of the numerous workshops offered during our conventions at Loyola Marymount and Purdue. We plan to continue that tradition this year at Harvard. We know it’s hard to keep up with our alumni until the convention rolls around. Our alumni and young professionals are often transient–new jobs, graduate school, new cities, and more movement. In these ventures, remember to stay connected with the ULCs in your area. You can do that by registering with us online. If you already registered as a student (or alumni in years past), great, just login to make sure your information is up-to-date. This year, the alumni membership subscription fee will be $30 and that will carry you through June. Your membership will keep you connected with us, and provide you with discounted rates to all LCN events. Remember, as an alumni you’ll need your local ULC to sponsor you, it doesn’t have to be your alma mater. We can help!
On behalf of the LCN Executive Board we’re honored to serve you. Please reach out to the board whenever you have any questions, comments, concerns, great ideas and/or critiques. Our mission is to continue to serve you at the highest capacity, and if you want to get involved on a committee please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Please send your queries to [email protected] or to any officer. We wish you good luck in this new fiscal year and see you at an LCN event in your area.
