U.S. Postage P A I D Perm it No. 1 (address correction please) THE PAUL SMITH'S SEQUEL SPRING 1981 TO ALL PAUL SMITH'S COLLEGE ALUMNI: As an alumnus of Paul Smith's College ('48), I have been pleased with the activi­ ties of the Alumni Council and the interest devoted to College needs by elected members of this important body. I feel strongly that the time has come to provide better support to the elected Council members. This can only come through parti­ cipation, generating new ideas and providing them a greater means of support, both physical and monetary. The monetary support need not be much per graduate — if only everyone would participate! The Alumni Association realizes -- dollar-wise only a very small portion of its potential and all too often only a few members provide the bulk of that support. I have expressed myself to the Council to the effect that as long as the College provides free office space, and as long as the College pays staff salaries for Alumni Affairs -- then the Alumni Association will continue to accept that as an \undisputed right of the organization.\ In January I requested that the Alumni Council endorse a campaign to raise a por­ tion of the cost of staffing and operating an Alumni Affairs office. The College would continue to house and support the remainder of the cost. College Trustees would support such a two-fold cooperative effort to improve the general well being of alumni affairs. Hopefully, as Alumni of Paul Smith's we shall say, \Enough is enough. We shall support our own organization. We will raise the dollars necessary to function on our own two feet. We are proud of Paul Smith's College and shall do our best to organize as quickly as possible a funded organization to develop our own programs and to support the school that has been so meaningful to us.\ I urge that we support such a concept and concentrate on reaching this goal. We must have a program that will permit and encourage all of us to step forward and help the Council. If we disagree with their final decisions, so be it; we must overlook personal feelings for the sake of the organization and the support of Paul Smith's College. Let's show we can do it! THOMAS N. STAINBACK, PRESIDENT ALUMNI COUNCIL ACTION The 1980-1981 Alumni Council, meeting on January 24, 1981, at The Saranac in Saranac Lake, adopted a goal of $15,000 as an annual fund raising amount to be designated for support of the operation of the Office of Alumni Affairs. Trustees endorsed the Alumni effort at their Winter meeting held in New York City on February 8, 1981. Interviews for the position of Alumni Director will be conducted and the office will be staffed for the 1981-1982 year. DEVELOPMENT REPORT AS THIS ISSUE IS GOING TO PRESS, FIVE ALUMNI GIFTS HAVE BEEN RECEIVED TO SUPPORT THIS GOAL. THE TOTAL AMOUNT PLEDGED OR PAID IS $1,500. ONLY 45 ADDITIONAL MAJOR GIFTS AT THAT GIVING PACE ARE NEEDED.
