Get Involved and Join a Committee

Posted: January 3, 2014

Sign-up to volunteer on an Ag Alumni Society committee! Giving back to your Alma Mater can mean a variety of things to each alumni -- speaking in a class, networking with students, engaging alumni at the Ag Progress Days Alumni Pavilion or collaborating with board members to plan alumni and student events. Next committee meeting is scheduled for May 3, 2014.
