The School of Law Alumni Association Board of Directors continues to focus on building a more engaged alumni
community under the leadership of President Stephen Button ’06. He has effectively led the Board in creating
programming that is instrumental in enabling alumni to develop stronger ties to the School of Law.
Central to the success of the Board is not only the efforts of its members, but also its alumni volunteers.
Linda Fakhoury ’04, chair of the Communications Committee, has worked diligently on recruiting alumni
to be class agents. Connecting with an alumni base that spans decades has been rewarding work for her
committee but it would not be possible without class agents such as Ina Forman ’84 stepping forward.
The Board’s outreach would
also not be as effective without
event hosts. Lisa Lippiello ’06
recently hosted a First Thursday
in Northampton. Lisa shared
with the Board that “it was so
wonderful to see old friends
and meet new ones from the
Western New England law
alum community. Smiles were
abundant.” These gatherings are
central to the work of the Events
Committee and help to create and
sustain connections among our
alumni in different regions.
Members also encourage you
to volunteer your time and talent.
Class agents, event hosts, and
committee members are needed
to help foster a spirited and
connected alumni community.
Volunteering your time is
also a great first step if you are
looking to serve on the Board.
Two members, Mike Borg ’88
and Jon Longobardi ’ 10, have
found their service to the Board so
rewarding that they are currently
serving an additional term. Their
renewed commitment coupled
with the commitment of the hundreds of alumni volunteers from
our Law Alumni Association is a
testament to the strength of our
The Board encourages you to
join other alumni in giving back
to the School of Law.

Acting as a Class Agent for the class of 1984 keeps me in touch with the School of
Law and my peers. I strongly credit my fellow students for making my law school
experience interpersonally comfortable, non-competitive and fun so it’s always
special to hear about their lives and varied career paths.” —Ina Forman ’84
