MONONGALIA, W.Va. – Chapter leaders from across the country met at an alumni event conference held at West Virginia University Friday afternoon.

Roughly 110 leaders discussed ways to better serve alumni and how to better the university whether that be through recruiting new students or partnering with businesses.

WVU head football coach, Neal Brown, was the surprise guest speaker at their luncheon and answered questions.

“It’s just a great opportunity for our chapter leads to share information amoungst each other as well as us to help them understand where the university is going and things we can do to help West Virginia and the University.  So, it’s really a cross full of ideas,” said President & CEO of the WVU Alumni Assocation, Sean Frisbee.

“Really, this meeting is just a group of volunteers.  These people all have jobs, families, careers, but what draws them here to this meeting, what draws them to do what we do everyday is a love for the university, and this state and really try to give back to what gave us so much, ” said Bill Gray of WVU Alumni Association.

The conference will continue through the weekend.
