    My new Happy Hour companion looked at me. "I really enjoyed my time at Guilford," she said. "Since graduating a few years ago, I have had a hard time staying connected to the school and I miss that sense of community." I first volunteered for the Alumni Association in 2008. To achieve a stronger network of alumni engagement, the Guilford College Alumni Association Board (GCAAB) and college staff need talented individuals willing to work with our local chapters and other affinity groups to help build the association we all want to see. We can help you get started and provide tips on what has worked well in the past. But we cannot do this alone. Will you join us in this cause?
