News & Notes
Hello Summer . . .
Online Membership Up and Running
Did you know your
Association dates back to 1911 when the first group of alumni
formally developed an organization committed to maintaining and
cultivating among its members a sense of pride for their alma
mater and to support and promote the interests of Montclair
State? More than 90 years later, the mission of the Alumni
Association hasn’t changed. And thanks to technological
advances, joining the MSUAA is electronic and easier than ever.

Groups & Chapters Get Active
A group of Capitol-area
gathered for brunch at the Corcoran Gallery of Art Cafe in Washington, D.C. "We had a
delightful time," said organizer Valerie Malhomes '80 '84 MA.
Joining her were Kathy Houston '90, Stanley Jakubik '70, '76
M.A. and his wife Jan Thorne Jakubik '70, and Herman Wass '03. "We talked about how the University has changed since our time
on campus. We also talked about how we'd like the DC alumni to
get together with a purpose. We love the idea of networking and
getting to know each other, but we thought it would also be good
to have a project to work on every so often. One of the things
that came to mind, was working with the University's Government
Relations department on topics of interest. We thought that
being in Washington, D.C. would afford us the unique opportunity
help in any way we can.
The group plans to get together again in December. If you are
interested in participating in Washington, D.C. regional group
activities, e-mail Maholmes at
