First Friday Lunch - October 2017

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.

Allison SimiOn Friday, October 6th, 2017, we will be joined by Allison Simi, a 6th year PhD candidate in Chemical and Biological Engineering.  Allison studies how mechanical properties of the tumor microenvironment influence the malignant potential of the surrounding cells.  While most current cancer treatments were designed to target the cancer cells themselves, tumor growth and progression are critically influenced by signals from the local microenvironment.

As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte**] 
Pre-registration is preferred.

Upcoming Elections for Officers and Directors

June 14, 2017
Notice to all Members of PA3

The Princeton Area Alumni Association plans to hold its annual meeting for 2017 in the fall (as in previous years) at a date to be announced. Under our by-laws, we will conduct elections at that annual meeting for officers and directors of the Association. It is anticipated that a number of positions – both officers and directors – will need to be filled as current terms expire and some current office holders step down. Among the positions likely to be open are president, vice-president, secretary, and four positions as directors. In addition, the Association is in need of various committee chairs, who manage specific aspects of PA3’s activities.

Please consult our website for a list of officers, directors, and committee chair positions. A copy of the by-laws, with descriptions of the responsibilities of the various officers and directors, is available on that website under the link “governance” at the left.

Prior active experience working with PA3 is of course a plus, but is not a necessary precondition. Candidates who indicate an interest and willingness to serve will be considered by the Committee prior to the annual meeting. Please note these are not “honorary” positions. Leadership roles within PA3 require active participation in the Association’s activities and management. Time commitments vary with the position; the work is collegial and rewarding.

If you may be interested in taking a leadership position in PA3 in any of the above roles, please contact any member of the Nominating and Governance Committee, which is mandated by our by-laws to propose a slate to the annual meeting. In order to allow the Committee to consider potential candidates in good time, indications of interest should be received before July 15. All inquiries are of course non-binding.

Members of the Committee are:

 George Bustin ’70, Chair
 Tom Swift ’76
 Cheryl Rowe Rendleman ’81
 Lydia Zaininger ’83
 Kristin (Alyea) Epstein ’97
