Greetings from your Dental Alumni Association Board President. We are a diverse Board of 15 members who are working hard to facilitate strong alumni relationships with new graduates as well as not so recent alumni. As the only dental school in the state of Wisconsin, we'd like to work with YOU to keep your interest in the dental school current, and keep the dental school current. We are fortunate to have a first class facility here in Wisconsin and faculty that are truly vested in the future of dentistry.

If you have not yet had the opportunity to visit the dental school since its most recent addition, please consider taking a tour when you are in the Milwaukee area--I think you will be impressed by the facility, faculty, and caliber of students at Marquette's School of Dentistry. As the parent and mother-in-law of 2013 graduates, I can attest to the fine education that Marquette's dental school is providing for its students--the graduates of Marquette's School of Dentistry are prepared to enter the workforce as professionals, providers of first class dental healthcare, and leaders in their communities.

As Board members, our jobs include (but are not limited to) setting up alumni events, sponsoring a welcoming reception for the D1s each fall, and sponsoring CE meetings. We take our responsibilities seriously, and welcome any suggestions that the alumni have. Please consider joining us in one of our Board-sponsored events, or consider joining the Board itself-we are always looking for new Board members who can inject fresh ideas and enthusiasm into our agenda.

I look forward to meeting each of you personally. Should you have any questions or suggestions about future alumni functions, please contact Ms. Carol Trecek, Director of CE and Alumni Relations at carol.trecek@marquette.edu.

Sincerely

Sue Meinerz, Dent '84

President, Dental Alumni Association
