The UAA Bulletin Board is the town square of the Association which provides recent information of interest and importance to Alumni.  We encourage local members and those outside the D.C. area to provide us with the development-related articles or items published in local news media, development organization statements, and other relevant sources.

You can submit items for posting by sending them to “, subject: UAA Bulletin Board”.  The articles will be posted as titles that, when clicked on, will pop up on the reader’s website page.
