The Collegian Alumni Interest Group (AIG) Board of Directors will conduct its annual meeting via Zoom beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Sept. 13.

Any member of the AIG may attend, and anyone who worked for The Collegian, whether on the news side or the business side, is automatically a member of the AIG.

Four new members will join the Board of Directors at that meeting. Voting to fill the four vacancies on the board is being conducted now and will conclude on Aug. 20. All Collegian alumni may vote. Here is a link to the balloting.

The Board of Directors will elect new officers at the Annual Meeting, determine what committees are needed, select chairs and volunteers for those committees and set Collegian AIG goals and plan events for the year.

I started my journalism career at The Daily Collegian, where I covered cops, "radicals and minorities," and served as editorial page editor. After graduation, I worked as a reporter and feature writer for two community papers, The Tribune-Review and the Beaver County Times, before being hired by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I worked for the Post-Gazette for 27 years as a reporter, assistant city editor and editorial page writer. For a decade I covered issues regarding children and families, and a series of stories I wrote, along with a court case I persuaded the Post-Gazette to pursue, led to an order opening to the press and public dependency hearings in Pennsylvania juvenile court. In 2007, I began working as a blog writer for the United Steelworkers Union, composing blogs and op-eds that were published in the name of the union's international president. I am now retired and working as a consultant for The Pittsburgh Foundation's communications department.
