Making a Difference at UCSC Meeting, 12/10/00
Roz Helfand will be hosting a meeting on December 10, 2000,
at 3819 Sawtelle Avenue, Apartment D, located between Sawtelle
and Venice. The meeting will be to discuss which issues the
focus group wants to focus on to promote the role of the Alumni
in influencing change at UCSC. Also what types of action do we
plan to attempt to institute the changes we want to see. Some
possible issues are overcrowding; how alumni can make more of
a difference and have a greater influence on the campus; how
can alumni act as a resource for the campus. Please contact
Roz at 310-313-6682 if you plan to attend. Issues discussed
will be brought to the general January Business Meeting.

by Wednesday, December 13, 2000, if you plan to attend. Group size
is limited to 15. We will be meeting at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood

February Faculty Visit
We are looking to have a faculty member come and give a lecture in
February. Our first choice is Eliot Aronson. If Eliot is unavailable,
we are considering Craig Haney. Daniel Scheie and Ann Galoway have
also been mentioned as professors people would be interesting in
hearing speak. We are looking for a venue at which to host the lecture.
Possible venues are:
We still need to organize for this event the professor, select the date,
and locate a venue.
- Beverly Hills Public Library Meeting Room
has good access to free public parking and good restaurants are located nearby.
- Santa Monica Public Library Auditorium
- A restaurant
May Wine Tasting
The May Wine Tasting is scheduled for May 5, 2001.
Alison is working on helping to locate a possible venue for this
event. We had been trying to get access to the Paramount backlot
but as of two weeks ago there had been no progress made on this
location. We also need to find a alumni vintner who is willing
to donate their wine to the event.
Fran would like us to use the Cal Lodge at Tahoe.
We need to locate a schedule for the coming
season and try to figure out a concert to try to attend.
Alison gave us approximately 500 email addresses and names.
Fran has deleted the addresses which have bounced back. Fran has
sent copies of the remaining email addresses to both Claude and
Michele to keep for master lists.
The web page http://alumni.cse.ucsc.edu/~franz has been updated.
It now includes the meeting schedule for 2001 and the officer page
has been updated.
We need to focus on how to get people more involved and attending meetings.
Also, we need to remind people that work will not be dumped upon you if you
attend a meeting.
- Invitations need to be more personalized,
- maybe we can send out reminders,
- we should tie business meetings to potlucks or
- possibly dinners at restaurants.
The next meeting is scheduled for January 7, 2001, at 4 PM at
Fran Zandonella's house.
Meeting adjourned at 6 PM.
