Nebraska/Western Iowa Alumni and Friends Chapter

Chapter Updates

Summer 2007

Members of the Nebraska/Western Iowa Chapter are calling all Northwest alumni in the area to ask for their help and input in better serving the area's alumni. Input is being sought on types of events in which the chapter could participate. The chapter has already established a successful Thirsty Thursday tradition where members gather the first Thursday of every month at a local establishment for food, beverages and socializing. Ideas for future events include other socials, networking events, guest speakers and forming recreational sports teams. Anyone who enjoyed their college experience or enjoys sharing in Bearcat pride is encouraged to get involved. For more information, contact Joe Glab '01 at catz54@gmail.com or visit www.freewebs.com/bearcatalumnine/ or www.nwmissouri.edu/alumni/chapters/nebraska_iowa.htm.


Spring 2007

The Nebraska/Western Iowa Alumni and Friends Chapter enjoyed presentations from local business leaders as well as by several Northwest faculty and staff. The chapter, which welcomes all Northwest graduates, spouses, family and friends, continues to hold monthly social gatherings on Thirsty Thursday (first Thursday every month) in Omaha, Neb. Please contact the area officers at dlmnw1985@yahoo.com for location information. Chapter leaders are seeking ideas for future events and are considering hosting events outside of the Omaha metropolitan area. Officer elections will take place this spring.

Ideas submitted through e-mail are welcome, and responses received following the spring alumni magazine are being incorporated into some of the chapter's future monthly meetings.
