Rensselaer Alumni Association Update with Information FOR RSE ALUMNI

By Tom Keating ‘75, President – RSE Board of Trustees

As some of you may already be aware, in addition to being on the RSE Board of Trustees, I am also a Vice President on the RAA Alumni Board.

One of the projects that we have been working on for a while is to bring a new Alumni Network to all RPI Alumni.  This was accomplished, announced and released during the recent RPI Reunion & Homecoming Weekend at the end of September.

As noted in the release below, there are many reasons to join this network.  Some that could benefit our RSE Alumni include career opportunities and the ability to locate and connect with some of your non-RSE friends and classmates.

There is also an Affinity Group feature and an RSE Group has already been created, which you are eligible to join.

It’s easy to sign up and there’s even an RAA Connect App that you can download to your phone from either the Apple Store or the Google Play Store.

RSE Strategic Retreat - July 2019

Strategic Retreat Brings Alumni and Junior Members Together to Discuss the Future of RSE

Developing a strong foundation and plan for the future of RSE requires committed interaction between Alumni and Junior Members.  To reinforce this commitment, RSE held a Strategic Retreat in Newark, NJ this summer during the weekend of July 19-21st, 2019.

The Retreat was well attended by the Trustees, the leadership of the Junior Members and interested Alumni.  Twenty-one Members of RSE, spanning 58 years and the classes of 1963 to 2021, settled down in the Springhill Suites at beautiful Newark Airport to discuss the future of RSE.  The retreat focused on returning the Junior Membership to active status in the RPI community, preparing for our next Rush, and finalizing the planning for our New Member Education Program.  We also built in time to discuss the vision and path for the organizations over the next five years and beyond.
