Special Election Issue
Alumni News
From division gatherings to
reunions and branch events, here's
all the information you need to
stay in touch.

Election 2000
Meet the men and women who
want to serve on the Board of
Directors. If you don't vote, you
don't get to complain.

What ever happened to that guy who
used to eat those Llmburger
sandwiches during English 101 lectures?

[editor's view
Or maybe the question should be
"Why have an election at all?"
The Association's constitution
insists on elections, but constitutions, as
we all know, can be changed. After all, it
costs us a zillion dollars to mail each
issue out and we don't get all that many
ballots returned, so why not just save the
paper or print something else. Some
university alumni associations just
appoint a board without bothering with
an election at all.
Here's what we do now: every year
our nomination committee selects a slate
to fill the number of available positions.
This slate is made up of grads whose
careers, volunteer experiences and
interest in UBC suggest they would be
good board members. Most years, this
slate is elected by acclamation, since no
one else puts their name forward. In
some years, like this one, other nominations come in and we hold an election. If
we get a very few ballots, perhaps we
Why Vote in an Alumni Election
should consider an appointed board and
forget about elections. What do you
think?
The Alumni Association has been
active since 1917 serving the interests of
grads and the university. That long
history has been both productive and
valuable to UBC's development. Some of
our volunteers have been or became VIPs
in this province: Sherwood Lett, John
Oliver, Arthur Laing, Bill Gibson, Nathan
Nemetz, George Morfitt, Charlotte
Warren, Deborah Sing, Martin Glynn
and Haig Farris, to name a few, have all
served as president of this Association. As
volunteers, they have had an influence
on the direction this university has taken
over the years, and have actively designed the kinds of programs we offer
you. And they have worked hard.
The short answer to the question
heading this column is, "because it
matters." It's one way you can participate in the Association's (and the
university's) business, and your vote will
directly affect how this Association
operates. You may not know any of the
candidates presenting themselves for
election. How, you might wonder, can
you make an informed decision.
We provide some information about
each candidate; where he or she works,
what he or she has done in the community, and how he or she feels about the
job they're seeking. How do you think
their experience will help this Association operate, and how will that experience help them operate as a team? Read
over the information on each candidate,
and, based on that information, vote for
the people you think would do the best
job.
Maybe things will change in the
future. Maybe we'll decide not to have
elections anymore. But this year we have
one. Exercise your right and cast your
vote. Your Association will be the better
for it. Chris Petty, editor a umni news

reception, Nov. 30.
Since our inception as a society
in 1917, the focus of the
Alumni Association has been
the well-being of UBC. From
our involvement in the Great
Trek in 1922 through our work in the
"Back Mac" campaign in the 1960s to our
support of the World of Opportunity
campaign in the early 1990s, successive
Association boards have pledged time,
resources and commitment to the goals of
the university.
It's no different today. When Martha
Piper brought down her vision of UBC's
future in "TREK 2000," we went to work to
integrate that vision into our day-to-day
planning. All our programs, from this
magazine to our reunion and branch work,
have been scrutinized and adjusted to
ensure that our goals and those of the
university are in complete harmony.

• HK: Branch executives held a lunch in the

• New York, New York: David Neustaedter

• Call to all Canadian alumni! You are
needed for events, development Et mentoring
for the India branch. Contact Nitin Jain at
jainitin66@hotmail.com or 462-8877.
Our renewed commitment to branch
development is a good example of this
integration. "Internationalization" is one
of the main tenets of TREK 2000. UBC's
goal is to educate our students in a global
context, and to attract more students,
faculty and academic relationships from
the international community. In response
to this, we have expanded our branches
program by devoting full-time staff
position to developing close links with our
far-flung alumni, and to creating opportunities for interaction between alumni,
university members and students abroad.
Another of TREK 2000's goals is to
increase community involvement in the
university. We have expanded our Aaml to
offer no-cost borrowing privileges at UBC's
library, access to fitness and aquatic
services, reduced internet connection costs,
and many other discounts. As well, we are
increasing our focus on Alumni Day (on
September 30 this year) and on the annual
awards dinner to be held in November.
These are just some of the ways we attract
you, our alumni, to get involved again
with your university.
This special election issue is yet
another way for us to encourage your
participation in UBC's affairs. Take a
moment to look over our slate of candidates for the Board of Directors, and
exercise your vote. Become part of a
growing number of UBC grads who are
giving back to their alma mater.

had much success organizing events and

to be part of the team to ensure that
success continues. I also want the Board
of Directors to further explore ways of
building on that success.

pleasures and challenges associated with
such organizations. I recognize similarities
between the challenges that other groups
face and those that the Association faces:
how can we promote awareness of our
services among our membership, how can
we encourage participation? I also
recognize that there are many
opportunities to bring together alumni,
students and the university to foster
active, mutually beneficial relations.
Through my experience, knowledge and
enthusiasm, I hope to contribute to the
dedicated team that works to improve and
to enhance the level of service provided to
our membership.
Darlene Marzari,
BA'64, MSW'66
Professional
Experience:
As social planner,
fought urban
renewal and worked
with inner city
communities to
develop relevant
social services. Served eight years as
Vancouver Alderman, building
neighbourhood councils for upgrading
and social service coordination. Served 10
years as a BC MLA, and five years as a
minister (Culture & Tourism, and Municipal Affairs). Developed a strategy for
planning and managing urban growth in
BC using consensus building and inclusion as the basic organizing principle.
This policy is still at work today. Founded
Kaboodles, now a successful toy business
in Vancouver.
Occupation: Retired from active public
duty. Now a gardener, a reader, a friend, a
full-time mother (to the chagrin of her
teenaged boys), and a volunteer on the
boards of the Fraser Basin Council, the
Katherine Sanford Housing Society, and a
few others.
Statement: At a time when the
university is developing a new vision for
what it can be in the larger community,
it's important for graduates to continue to
mentor students and perhaps to remind
them of the positive aspects of where the
institution has been. I think I can help
develop the mentoring programs, and I'm
old enough to have had some experiences
that could be useful, while young enough
to remember a few.
