National Alumni Association Election


Dear Providence College Alumni:

It is a privilege to present to you the candidates for vice president for election to the 2016-2017 Providence College National Alumni Association Council. As the association’s president-elect and chair of the nominating committee, I am delighted that these accomplished, committed, and enthusiastic alumni have come forward as candidates.

As part of the election process, we asked candidates to supply general biographical information, including details about how they have remained connected to Providence College.  Our candidates also provided a reflection on the association’s mission and thoughts on how they will serve the alumni population if elected. Please review candidate biographies and mission reflections below before you vote, as you will not be able to re-enter the ballot once you have opened it.

The National Alumni Association Council serves in an advisory capacity on a number of important matters for Providence College. Every vote is important because the board provides a direct voice on a host of important issues that are central to PC’s future success.

Ballots are distributed to all alumni who have donated any amount to Providence College during the immediate past or current fiscal years.

Please do not wait to vote.  All ballots are due no later than June 30, 2016.  The results will be announced and posted on our alumni web page in July.

Thank you for voting in this election. By doing so, you help ensure an active and effective alumni association at Providence College.

Candidates for Vice P​​resident

Karen M​​onti Flynn '80 & '15P​

If elected to Providence College’s Board of the National Alumni Council as Vice President, my goal will be to continue to encourage all alumni to keep our alma mater alive by remembering that we are a family… we are the past, present, and future of Providence College.  Regardless of our graduation year, we need to assist Providence College in its mission by encouraging all of us to participate in the College’s many activities, programs, community outreach, and future goals. I will encourage all to be a part of PC’s transformation.

Since graduating in 1980, I have always enjoyed returning to PC to assist with phonathons, class reunions, various alumni activities and sporting events.  Over the past few years, I have had the honor to serve on the National Alumni Council as Member at Large, Treasurer, and Secretary.  My time on the Council has given me the opportunity to continue to promote Providence College’s mission and vision, participate in many alumni activities which enabled me to reconnect with fellow alumni, meet new alumni, and spend time with undergraduates listening about their time at PC and their future after graduation.  Forever a Friar!!

Volunteering at Providence College continues to bring me back ‘home’ to Friartown!  I am proud to be an alumna of Providence College and honored to be nominated for the position of Vice President. I am ready to advance the mission of Providence College and work with its alumni, faculty, student body and staff to accomplish the college’s goals.

To all my fellow alumni:  Connect with Providence College.... PC is a treasure and a legacy that we must nurture and maintain not only for ourselves, but for those who wish to join our family in the future. Go Friars!!!

When I think of Providence College I think of two words - family and community. PC became a family affair when my 2 younger sisters followed me to PC. We found that Providence College wasn’t just a home away from home – it was a community that fostered relationships and memories that stand the test of time and distance.

As a member of the executive board on the National Alumni Council I will work to help develop new ways for alumni to reengage with Providence College. Disconnected alumni need to see and hear about the amazing changes going on at PC. From the partial closing of Huxley Avenue to the groundbreaking ceremony of our Business School - Providence College is bigger and better than when we left it.   

It’s important that the great work done by the staff and faculty at PC as well as the regional clubs, affinity groups and other forms of outreach from PC are supported as they advance the mission of the College. 

There are so many ways to give back to Providence College. I’d love to share my ideas to help bring alumni back to our PC community and family.   ​
