Event Season: LAU takes its message on the road

Now that 2010 is underway, LAU officials everywhere are working to hold new events across the globe to tell more people about our mission and keep our friends connected. As part of the new year’s schedule, and in conjunction with the successful comprehensive campaign, The Legacy and the Promise, the university will hold more gala events for friends. Muscat, Oman, will play host to one of the university’s events for the campaign later this year, with other events in the Middle East coming. In addition, LAU will host its first campaign gala in New York in the spring, which will be a milestone for growth in the university’s visibility in America.

After a successful first event, the university will hold its second gathering for alumni from the U.S. and Canada in Las Vegas in February. As in 2009, the event will offer alumni a chance to reconnect, enjoy their time in a city built for fun and learn how to develop their alumni chapters. Dr. Joseph G. Jabbra, LAU’s president, will also attend, meeting members of the university’s extended family and giving lectures on the global economy. Abdallah Al Khal, the Alumni Relations Office’s director, will explain how to develop their chapters and get them to grow, while Ed Shiner, the special programs director, will offer information on how far-flung alumni can keep connected to LAU.

The university will also keep connected on campus, with the Alumni Relations Office holding more of its professional seminars for LAU graduates. The office already held its first seminar late last year, and its second event, which focused on “emotional intelligence in management” on January 21st, had over 220 people attend.
