Reunion Weekend is June 4-7 – only weeks away! Register today

On June 4, we will welcome close to 400 alumni, faculty, staff and friends back to the Johnson School to celebrate Reunion Weekend 2009. For alumni who are celebrating an anniversary year (class years ending in 4s and 9s), be sure to register for your special reunion and reach out to your fellow classmates to encourage them to come back. Check out to see who's coming from your class and visit our Web site to review the schedule. We hope to see you at Reunion!

Looking for great venues to host alumni events
With over 60 alumni events held globally in any given year, we are always looking for creative ways to provide outstanding events for our alumni. This past year, we were fortunate enough to have close to 20 percent of our events hosted by alumni who were willing to offer space at their company, local club, or home. This not only strengthens the Johnson School connection with our alumni, but also allows us to provide more alumni programming globally. If you are willing to host an alumni event by providing a venue, please contact me at We'd welcome the opportunity to coordinate an event in your area in partnership with the regional alumni club if one is in place. For those areas that don't have an existing regional alumni club, we would still like to know about offers of possible venues, should we have a faculty member travel to your area who is willing to speak at an event.

We hope to see many of you during Reunion Weekend 2009, or during our travels.
