Boards to meet in March

The boards of the AMA Alumni Foundation and the AMA Alumni Association will meet on Saturday, March 7th 9:00 AM at the Holiday Inn in Staunton to discuss the further development of the Foundation's strategic Plan.

Foundation Chairman Blaine Clarke, '72, says that the meeting is to discuss the draft of a plan covering future museum staffing, fund raising, efforts toward getting the museum accredited and other matters of importance. The results of an external audit will also be presented. Clarke says, "We need to know where we are going and how we are going to get there. All AMA alumni are invited to attend the meeting."

For anyone who needs to spend the night, the Holiday Inn has a special $59 AMA rate for this event. The Saturday meeting will start at 9:00 AM and Clarke hopes that it will be concluded by 4:00 PM.

Three years in the making, the all AMA DVD premiered at Reunion 2008 featuring AMA, alumni and faculty experiences, memorable characters at AMA, and the service of Augusta men in five 20th and 21st century wars. Produced by the Winward Corporation and directed by Tom Kennedy and Hal McArthur, The AMA Way is very much a tribute to Mac McInnis, '67, whose dedication took it from concept to reality.
