11/17 Approved subsidy of the Christmas party by $500. A. Niyekawa reported
the results of a survey. Of 240 questionnaires attached to the September
Newsletter, 41 (17%) had been returned. Many of them favored more socializing
and opportunities to keep in touch with former colleagues.
Mona Chock, UH Alumni Affairs Administrator, spoke to the board about tangible benefits
derived by members by FRAUHM’s affiliation with UHAA.
The March-May Newsletter included a one-page note on the advantages that could be
derived from FRAUHM’s affiliation with UHAA and a “Prefernce Response” form.
There were 24 responses. Six were already UHAA members, three were life members,
and 15 expressed interest in dual membership in FRAUHM and UHAA.
