The first-ever official reception for the UO Accounting Alumni Network took place in the UO Portland White Stag building in June. The event brought together Portland-area grads from a wide range of eras: "We had a fellow who graduated in 1957, and then somebody who graduated last year, and everything in between," recalled accounting instructor Michele Henney, one the event's organizers and the department’s external relations manager. "It was tremendous!" (See photos of the festivities--including the UO Duck--in the UO Accounting Alumni Network’s Facebook album.) Future plans include a get-together in Eugene this fall and, during the next few years, a series of receptions to be held in metropolitan areas up and down the West Coast. To keep current, follow the accounting network on Twitter, "like" their Facebook page, and join them on LinkedIn.
