President's Message

It has been an incredible year for The American College Alumni Association. We are continually seeking new and exciting ways to promote your designations and to keep you engaged with The College.

In this past year, we have had outstanding success with the Alumni Association Tour Events. Hartford LIVE on May 22 had a record 309 alumni in attendance, making it our largest event to date! These important events reconnect you with The American College and allow you to meet other alumni in the area.

Educational and networking opportunities do not end at LIVE events. The Alumni Association puts on events in your area too! This year alone, we had events in New York, Amston, CT, Philadelphia, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. These smaller scale events allow alumni to network on a more personal level. Each year our alumni base keeps growing, and we are working hard to keep in touch with all of our alumni.

As The American College moves forward, we understand the importance of keeping up with current technology. We are always updating our Alumni website, and have finished putting the latest important piece of the puzzle together with the Resources page at This is a great tool for finding information to promote your designations, keep up with our industry, and learn how you can get involved with our social media efforts.

Our goal is to improve online networking so alumni can continue getting the right information at the right time. Please feel free to reach out to us with any ideas or suggestions for improving your experience with The College’s Alumni Association.

On behalf of everyone on the Alumni Advisory Board, we hope you have an amazing end to 2014!

Michael F. Scovel, CLU®, ChFC®, MSM
Alumni Advisory Board President
