WPIAA President's Corner

Current President: Rachel Delisle '96, '06 MBA

Dear Alumni:

Summer is a special time of year. Often we use this time to slow down a bit, to refresh ourselves with a nice vacation. When it comes to finding fun and thought-provoking ways for WPI alumni to connect, there is no slowing down. There are many events in the works that we hope you can take advantage of. Here are some details on just a few.

Concerns about the security of electronic information, whether corporate, personal, or governmental, seem to be at an all-time high. Of course, WPI and our alumni are at the forefront of the work taking place to keep it all safe. On Wednesday, Sept. 16, join alumni and friends for a panel discussion on “Protecting Privacy: WPI Alumni Securing Cyberspace”  which will take place at MITRE Corporation in McLean, Va.

While Homecoming is a special event on its own, we are planning a special event during Homecoming 2015 to recognize those who give of their time and talent to the Alumni Association. On Saturday, Sept. 26, the WPI Alumni Association will host a celebration to honor its past presidents. Please plan to attend and celebrate your fellow alumni who have served you and WPI over the years. This event will begin just after the traditional Rope Pull.

The plans are coming together nicely for the Alumni Association Women’s Forum. This unique opportunity to connect and discuss relevant topics with other WPI women will be held on Saturday, Nov. 14.

Stay tuned this summer for more details about the celebration of past presidents, Homecoming, and the Women’s Forum.

I hope to see you at an alumni event in the near future. In the meantime, if you have feedback or ideas you want to share, feel free to reach out to me at rmdelisle@alum.wpi.edu.

All the Best,
Rachel Delisle ’96, ’06 MBA
