    1. Participation Eligibility for Golden Alumni Society Events - the council discussed the purpose and spirit of the Golden Alumni Society.  Since diplomas are not being issued, the council agreed that the ceremony is to recognize anyone who attended LWC  and not necessarily a graduate of LWC.  The LWC experience is a positive cornerstone in a lot of people's lives who attended here and it served as a stepping stone to the next phase of their careers.


  1. Motion was made by Gary Lane and seconded by Gary Franklin to form a Nomination Committee for Alumni Awards.  Any member of the LWC alumni association can nominate an individual for an alumni award, however, the committee's responsibility will be to narrow or expand the nominations in order to present the ballot to the council for the award recipient selection process.


The committee will consist of the following members:

Alumni Director, President, President Elect, Immediate Past President, Secretary, representative at large from Alumni Council, and LWC Vice President for Development or his/her designee
