Three CT alumni organizations share Alumni Council Award!

The three organizations (PAAFC, PAAEC and PACC) have been working together for the past few years. Our mutual support was noticed outside of Connecticut. At the 2011 Reunions in May, the three Connecticut alumni organizations were awarded the Committee on Regional Associations Award for Innovation. The Alumni Council cited the three associations “for institutionalizing the practice of ongoing collaboration with neighboring regional associations to engage all Princeton alumni living in the state of Connecticut.”
