Over the last few years, a group of dedicated alumni and the Alumni Relations staff have been working hard to increase programming for regional chapters. As the 2008-2010 Triangle Area Alumni Chapter President, one of those alumni, Matt Glova '07, is seeing of the fruits of his labor.
Organizing more than 7,500 alumni in the triangle area is no small feat. Through networking and assisting communication efforts, Matt and the chapter's steering committee, increased attendance during annual events, such as the Durham Bulls Picnic. The group also developed new events for area alumni, a Fall Dinner held at a local country club, and a Spring Mixer for a fun night of networking and dancing.
A business major while at UNCW, Matt now works as a Certified Financial Planner in Raleigh. Along with participating on the Alumni Board of Director's, he is also a member of the E.L. White Society. Matt enjoys staying in touch with UNCW and fellow alumni and will remain on the Triangle Chapter's executive board. With the Durham Bulls alumni picnic just around the corner, he's excited to spend time with friends and meet the new UNCW basketball coaches.
