The Dallas reception was hosted by alums Don Clampitt (BBA '79) and Tom Daulton (BBA '77), who are both actively involved on the Anderson National Advisory Board (NAB) as well as with UNM.

Since joining the NAB five years ago Don has become more involved with the Anderson School. He says, "This time spent with Anderson has given me a greater appreciation for the UNM Academic Community. I now have a heightened sense of awareness of the impact Anderson has on the local business community. I have had the good fortune of working with three deans, all which have completely different styles but with the same common interest of advancing the Anderson School."

The event was a great success and enabled more than 30 Anderson Alums to meet, greet and enjoy a message from the Dean.

Laura Kelley said our alums seemed to really enjoy meeting Dean Brown and getting back in touch with old friends. She says Anderson hopes to use the momentum from this trip to plan visits to other cities where there are a significant amount of alumni.
