2010 Branch of the Year

Congratulations to the McGill Alumni Association of Vancouver, winner of the 2010 Charles Peters Branch of the Year Award. Branch President Brandi Sundby, BA’04, accepted the award on the Branch’s behalf at the McGill Honours and Awards Banquet on Tuesday, May 18.

Mission: why we exist

To encourage local alumni, students, parents, and friends of McGill University to maintain their contact with the University and each other for their shared benefit and for the continuing vital support and advancement of McGill.

Objectives: what we need to do to pursue our mission

  • Advocacy – We want to be leaders in encouraging support for McGill University.
  • Relationships – We create opportunities for alumni and friends to develop mutually beneficial relationships among each other and with the University, with a specific focus on networking events.
  • Giving back – We want to support our local community by way of an annual event in conjunction with a local charity or city group, preferably with a McGill connection.
  • New student support – We are committed to continuing our bursary program and contest for incoming students in conjunction with our branch’s annual Send-Off event in August. We strive to create and nurture alumni/student relationships.

Strategic initiatives: how we are going to achieve our objectives

  • We will aim to achieve a minimum profit of 10% (of costs) in each event, with 100% of these proceeds benefiting the bursary program.
  •  We will host one community event in which alumni volunteer their time toward a community service of the Board’s choice.
