The polls open today for voting on our proposed constitution. As volunteers, we have spent over two years listening, discussing, and debating issues surrounding how we, the Alumni of Dartmouth, organize ourselves. While not necessarily perfect for each and every one of us, this constitution is our best effort - born of a fierce love of the College, and a determination to bring many disparate views together civilly.
To those who prefer the status quo, we wonder as to your agenda.
To those who object to specific portions of it, we say: Bringing
alumni governance into a single, more transparent structure sets the
stage for future reforms, as it is easier to amend one constitution
To those on the fence, we say: Read our report, see our rationale. There's a lot of spin out there; make up your own mind.
To those who, like us, think this is a step in the right direction,
we say: THANK YOU!
Obviously, we would love for all Alumni to vote to accept our work.
We also hope that all Alumni who care about the College will take the
time to vote.
