I a m pleased to take over the reins a s President of the BAC Alumni Association from an extraordinary alum who has done an outstanding job in leading the organization.

My tenure a s President begins amidst high expectations, ba sed on the exciting progress that we have already made. A perfect example is the Alumni Exhibition, We the BAC, shown during the AIA convention last summer, which displayed the work and talent of so ma ny of our alumni across a broad range of disciplines. We have organized special tours including the Peabody Essex Mu seum and MIT’s Stata Center.
