ew ideas and new plans were also the big stories for the WPI Alumni Association
in 1997-98. The association's Executive Committee and the Alumni Council approved a new five-year
master plan for the association, which includes new vision and mission statements. The association
also approved the reorganization of the Alumni Fund Board and its renaming as the Alumni Funds
Board. The board provides advice and guidance for WPI's Annual Giving Program.
At the end of the year, association President Robert E. Maynard Jr. '63 was looking forward to
the reports of four task forces that are developing recommendations and plans that build on four
critical program areas identified in the new master plan. These are the organization of the Alumni
Association's leadership bodies, communication with alumni, geographically targeted programming
for alumni, and career development services and lifelong learning for alumni.
