We have had many alumni in the past interested in reunions. We even had local chapters in the past. One of our goals is to start having Alumni reunions at conclaves. Any alumni are welcomed, but we have many alumni we have lost contact with. Since we have so many, we first are focusing on people that are from the schools that are hosting the conclaves. Also, looking to find alumni that are local to the conclave.
Alumni! We are conducting a survey to determine the demographic of the JAA with respect to civilians, military or retirees. Please access the link below when you have a chance to help the JAA out: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DHHT3TW
