Alumni Association. All current students are also welcome and encouraged to join. Here are four

1. Fill out the Alumni Getting Started form to receive UCAS Alumni newsletters.
2. Contact the alumni association by email
3. Join the UCAS Alumni Slack community. You may need to copy and paste this invitation link in another window: https://join.slack.com/t/ucas-alumni/shared_invite/zt-1b2m6ys4j-ukk~QRlUXKCIksuLOBi
4. Search all previous newsletters.

Current and former UCAS students,
My name is Joseph Melville. I graduated from UCAS class of 2010 and I'm very fond of my time there. I'm grateful for the wonderful opportunities and environment I was able to be a part of while at UCAS. As a way of giving back and staying connected, I have been looking into starting a UCAS Alumni Association. UCAS was founded in 2005 and will be closing out its seventeenth year this Spring. At this point there are over a thousand UCAS alumni, and I think it’s time.
With an alumni association, we could keep a history of the school and influence its development, stay connected to one another and current students, provide academic and career networking opportunities, organize multi-class activities, and manage donations and programs to increase opportunities for UCAS students.
To get this off the ground, we'll need alumni interested in helping with a newsletter, alumni to look into a corporation for the association, maybe alumni interested in organizing activities... The more people that want to get involved, the more we can do. Let me know what sounds most exciting to you. Please don't let your location get in the way. I'm currently in Florida, but we can all easily connect online.
Are you interested in getting involved? Please complete this survey to let me know your thoughts: https://forms.gle/PjKCEzcagypmt8dy8. The survey should take only about 5 minutes. It will assess your interest in getting involved directly, invite you share your contact information, give you options on how you would like your contact information to be used, and allow you to sign up for a bi-annual e-newsletter so you can stay informed in case you would like to be involved in the future.
I look forward to hearing from you!
