Note from the President and Membership Form

A New Year & Membership Form

Greetings, Ladies of The University Club:

Diane Dalton Picture

My name is Diane Dalton and I am your new University Club President for 2020-2021. Regrettably, our annual Fall Fair in September had to be cancelled. This was not an easy decision. The health risk to our membership is our first concern.

You may be wondering, how do we move forward in these unsettling times? I am happy to report that in this email you will have the opportunity to print your Membership Form and kick-start your new year. Your membership ensures that you receive a mailed Yearbook, three Clarions, monthly Luncheon and Program information with reservation forms, as well as contact information for joining any of the 31 Interest Groups.

The membership year starts June 1st and ends May 31st. We give you this communication as an opportunity to keep you informed and up-to-date. Also, the Clarion will be coming out earlier than ever before (in mid July) with vital information. The Yearbook will be mailed out in bulk, 200 at a time. So, the sooner you pay your dues, the sooner you will get your mailed copy. It will contain information that you normally would have received at the Fall Fair. Yearbooks will be mailed to those who have paid dues, and you should receive yours by late Summer or early Fall.

I encourage you to continue your support for our Club. We had an impressive 715 Members this past year, so we obviously enjoy each other's company.

During this “Stay-at-Home " time, I have been impressed with the creative ways our Interest Group Co-chairs have reached out to continue to connect with their group. Just a side note, The University Club has survived the 1918 Spanish Flu, the Great Depression of the 1930’s, and I have faith we will survive this pandemic as well. Possibly even stronger than ever before.

So, please take the time to support your Club by mailing in your dues either with the attached registration form or the forms that will be printed in the Clarion. Either way, you will be assured of up-to-date information.

Also, please share this information with any Members who might not have received this email. We have about 600 unique email addresses gathered from our Interest Groups, but we have over 700 Members, so this communication may not reach everyone. Since we are still building our Club email list, please include your updated email address on your Membership Renewal form. All Members will continue to receive the mailed Clarion, as well.

Questions? Please email: uclub.iowa@gmail.com

Thank you,

Diane Dalton
