PA3 Members - Annual Dues

Dear Fellow Princeton Area Alumni:

Summer is winding down.  Soon the leaves will be turning, the weather will be cooling, students will be arriving on campus, and the Princeton Tigers Football team will start their defense of their 2016 Ivy Championship. 

As an area alum you have the benefit of staying connected to Princeton, and the added benefit of being a member of one of the largest regional alumni associations, the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) (  The PA3 boasts over 3000 undergraduate and graduate alums, spouses, and parents of current students.  As a member, are welcome to attend any of the 50+ events we hold annually.  This includes monthly “First Friday” luncheons with a current PhD student, monthly “Propellers” on the Second Tuesday of each month featuring a Princeton entrepreneur, and a monthly book club.  In addition, we host a number of ad-hoc events including social happy hours, career and networking events, community service projects, lectures, seminars, exhibitions, performances, and much more.  Finally we work with the University to support various student-related activities including hosting students for Thanksgiving and other holidays, mentoring, etc.  We also have an Annual Dinner, which has had a number of interesting speakers.  

My plea to you today is to encourage you to become a “dues-paying member.”  Dues-Paying members get discounted admission to our paid events, but more importantly, dues provide support for our various activities.  We are proud to have sponsored numerous PICS (Princeton Internships in Civic Service) summer internships for current students, which have been made possible by the generosity of our dues paying members.  Simply put, the more dues we collect, the more Princeton students can be "In Our Nation's (and local communities') Service"

Annual dues are only $30 ($20 if you are a recent graduate within the past 10 years).  You can also show a stronger level of support by being a “Top Tiger” with a $100 contribution.
 As the next generation of alumni make their way back to campus, it is a perfect time to become a dues-paying member.  Just visit:

You can pay by credit card or check online, but if you prefer to mail a check, please make it payable to the Princeton Area Alumni Association, and send it to our Treasurer, Fouad J. Masrieh *69 (

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
