Letter from the Incoming Actives Presidents

We are honored to be a part of the Cap and Gown community and are looking forward to continuing to get to know the current Actives, welcoming a new class of Cap and Gown women, and connecting with Cap and Gown Alumnae.

This year we are especially grateful to have the opportunity to work with the incredible Cap and Gown women who serve on our Alumnae Board. We have already learned so much from their guidance in planning Tapping Tea and coordinating the fall recruitment and application process. We are eager for the other Actives to have similar opportunities to learn from them and the other inspiring women who compose the vast network of Gap and Gown Alumnae. We look forward to introducing our fellow Actives to the wealth of experience, warmth, and wisdom of Cap and Gown Alumnae through conversations at Winter Welcome and Spring Brunch as well as other informal events or meetings.

We also hope to build a strong community among the Actives that will continue to enrich our lives in the years to come. We began the year with a dinner at Treehouse for our returning Actives and have received great ideas for future events. We hope any Alumnae interested in connecting with the current Actives will not hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to help you connect with the current Actives and we know they are eager to meet you.

Finally, we want to recognize and extend our sincerest gratitude to our Vice President of Finance, the amazing Rachel Waltman. We are so grateful for everything you do behind the scenes, always with a smile.

We look forward to getting to know our members, both new and old.

Here’s to a wonderful year!
