Alumni/ae activities are a special joy for me. John Rudy, our MIT Class of 1967 agent, was the key to getting me involved when we were both working together at Raytheon. At our 25th Reunion back in 1992, several of us planned the first Tech Reunion Challenge Games. The Games have since become a fixture of every Reunion, and a lot of fun to organize each June. And the celebration for the 50th Smoot Anniversary is another "only-at-MIT" event that was a joy to create. I've also been quite involved with the MIT Club Of Boston. In 2007, we created the first Annual Science Trivia Challenge, which has proved to be quite a hit every April. Also for a decade, I served as Secretary for my 1969 MBA class at the Harvard Business School, succeeding Joe Levangie, another MIT classmate. I was chair for a our 35th Reunion and my MIT fraternity brother, Dave Dewan, was the chair for for even better 40th.

The picture shows Mike Phillips '89 and me receiving an award for the Theta Chi 100th Anniversary weekend on behalf of our fraternity. This was perhaps the most enjoyable weekend that my fraternity brothers and I have spent at MIT. Currently, I work closely with Association of Independent Living Groups (AILG), serve as Treasurer of MIT Hillel, and participate in the Community Catalyst Leadership Program. A number of us plan regular biannual MIT Men's Basketball Reunions every other February.

Several years ago, I was a Vice President of the board of the MIT Alumni/ae Association. More recently,I have been a volunteer for the Educational Council, interviewing high school seniors interested in MIT. It is a privilege to meet such fantastic young people, and also to be a host family in MIT's Host to International Students Program.
