Our Annual Meeting begins at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 20, 2017, at the Doudna Fine Arts Center in the Lecture Hall. New members and directors will be elected and members will also hear reports from University President David M. Glassman and Foundation President Mike Finkle. Treasurer, Sylvia Nichols, and our investment consultants will report on the Foundation's investments. Below you will find the Annual Meeting Agenda, which includes a copy of the 2016 Minutes, the lists of nominees for members and directors, and other information on the Foundation. Honorary Lifetime Members will also be recognized for their commitment to the ideals of service to EIU and the Foundation.

It is through their philanthropy and volunteer service, and the direct efforts of all our members, that the Foundation is able to fulfill its mission of support to the University. We will bring our Annual Meeting to a close with a reception to celebrate the contributions of these honored members, and to thank all Foundation members for their continued support of the University.
