Happy Summer from the DMAG Board

Hello, alumni!

We have some great events we would like to invite you to, along with some exciting announcements. First, please welcome our newly graduated alumni and newest board member, Morgan Kennedy. Dan, Kayla, and I speak for all of DMAG when we say that we are excited for you all to continue your support FTK! We would also like to thank Erin Larsen for her time on the board as she has helped DMAG continue to grow.

Highest Fundraising DM Alumni Group in the Country

We have recently learned that DMAG is the highest fundraising alumni base across all DM programs in the country! UIDM continues to grow with your help, and this year we have set a fundraising goal to raise $250,000. We have come close the past two years, and with some additional effort, we can reach this goal! If you organize a fundraiser, please email Nic Rusher (nerusher@gmail.com) so we can be sure to recognize your efforts. If you donate this year, be sure to check the “Event Alumnus” box on the donation page. We are also adding new events around the country in various cities, so be on the lookout for those updates.

To help bring DMAG closer to home, we would like to introduce our new regional liaisons! Their role is to spread the mission of DM in their cities and connect alumni through organized events. If you live in one of these cities, you will receive an email in the coming weeks with their events.

  • Chicago – Maddie Shafer and Lexi Spear
