Spring 2019 

Dear Friends and Members,

Let me begin this message with my personal thanks to the hundreds of members who helped us end 2018 with a strong response to the year-end appeal.  Because of the generosity of Lane alumni near and far, we will be better-positioned for a successful 2019… expanding programs and improving member services. We exceeded our goal of $50,000 and appreciate the positive reception we received for our first-ever Giving Tuesday campaign.

Now it is time to convert all that support into real progress! In March, we find ourselves closing out the grant award process to Lane faculty members, looking back fondly on our very fun, 3rd Annual Spring Training event in Mesa, Arizona, and assisting six reunion committees with their plans.

We are excited about the recent redesign of our quarterly magazine, Lane Tech Today, and will be hosting our second annual Speakers Forum panel discussion with students at Lane in in March in celebration of Women’s History Month, (featuring female alumni from the first four co-ed classes at Lane). Scholarship season is also ramping up and we are locked in with more than 700 tickets available for Lane Alumni Night at Wrigley Field on May 22, 2019.

Lastly, we extend a warm welcome to the "Cavalry"... the LTAA's first affinity group!  This alumni subset will be focusing on support to the current Lane Tech JROTC program, JROTC alumni, and military veterans.  

We fully expect this year to be filled with exciting activities and growth at the LTAA, and hope that you will choose to be a part of it.  Our annual membership drive will also commence this spring and we need your help.  If you are not a member, please join.  At $20, our annual dues are a bargain, and if you are already a member, consider upgrading to a longer term and/or recruiting others to join. Be Fearless & Bold!

With gratitude,

Michelle (Milkovic) Weiner ‘76

President, LTAA
