Web Site Award
Montgomery County (Pa.) Chapter
The Montgomery County Chapter launched its new Web site in January. The site connects alumni through the membership database, message boards, business advertising and more. It not only keeps area members informed, but it also helps in the outreach to other local alumni by informing them about chapter happenings and upcoming events. Since launching the site, the chapter has seen its paid memberships increase by 42 percent. The chapter now can easily communicate through e-mail and newsletters.

"On behalf of the MontCo Chapter Board, we thank you for your support of our new website since its launch on January 2, 2007. Please feel free to send us your comments and suggestions for improvements. We hope you enjoy the features that our site adds to your Alumni experience"

Martin R. Cepeda Jr., President
