Congratulations to Ann Vroom, Director of the Office of Alumni Affairs, who won the 1998 Distinguished Service Award from the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE). It was presented in June at Sir Wilfrid Laurier University, at the CCAE's annual conference.

The CCAE brings together those who work at Canadian universities in fundraising, alumni affairs and communications/public affairs, and Vroom was the first president, in 1993-94. She is seen above with two good friends from the CCAE executive, Stuart Reid, of the University of Calgary, who was treasurer when she was president, and Chuck Bridges, of St. Mary's University, who was president last year (1997-98).

Also taking prizes at the June conference were Gabrielle Korn, who won a bronze award in the Best Alumni or Volunteer Recognition category for the Alumni Recognition Awards Banquet, and Howard Bokser, editor of the Concordia University Magazine, which took a bronze award in its category.
