From the Executive Director

Dear members of the McGill Alumni Association,

Thank you for visiting McGill's Alumni Online Community! On behalf of the McGill Alumni Association, welcome to our new website. We hope you will click through the pages and discover what a great resource it can be for you and your family.

Our commitment to strengthening the bonds between McGill's 215,000 alumni and the University provided the initial spark for embarking on this ambitious project. In today's world, where communication methods seem to change on a daily basis, we require a website that can reach and respond to our worldwide network of graduates. We're very proud of the result, and we hope the AOC will motivate you to reconnect with your alma mater.

At the MAA, we know that every McGill graduate is unique, with different goals, priorities and expectations for their relationship with the University. Because it recognizes this fact, the AOC revolutionizes how we cater to our constituents. Whether you're looking for auto-insurance or lectures by McGill professors visiting your city, we have tried to put you and your needs at the centre of the AOC experience. We've brought your McGill connections to the forefront, making it easier for you to find what you're looking for, and maybe stumble upon some of our other services in the process.

The website's slogan – "Your McGill, wherever you go" – embodies our guiding philosophy. We hope you will find the new AOC fun and useful, no matter where you are in the world.

Honora Shaughnessy, MLS'73
