Save the Date! The Annual Alumnae/i Association Assembly will be Friday, June 7, 2019

March 20, 2019

The Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association invites all of you to this year’s Alumnae/i Association Assembly on Friday, June 7, 2019. An evolution of the annual meeting, the assembly is a chance to bring all alumnae/i together to hear important updates from school leadership and to be part of the conversation as we approach CA’s Centennial in 2022. During this time, the Joan Shaw Herman Award will be presented to the 2019 recipient and the alumnae/i community will also vote on the Alumnae/i Association officers for terms commencing in the fall of 2019. Following the assembly, everyone is invited to catch up with former faculty and friends across generations at the Alumnae/i Welcome Celebration as we kick off Reunion weekend!

Below is the preliminary schedule of the afternoon:

3:00 & 4:00 p.m. — Campus Tour + Highlights
4:00 p.m. — Alumnae/i of Color Reception
5:00-6:30 p.m. — Annual Alumnae/i Association Assembly
7:00 p.m. — Alumnae/i Welcome Celebration

The assembly festivities will take place on-campus. For those who cannot make it back to CA, the assembly will be live-streamed (the link will be available closer to the date). You can expect to see an invitation in your mailbox in April! Whether you were last on campus for reunion, or haven’t been back since graduating, we hope you will make plans to return to Concord this June.

Urged by CA Students, Concord Select Board Approves Resolution in Support of a Green New Deal

March 6, 2019

“Only one world” and “No more excuses” read the signs a Concord Academy student delegation carried down Main Street toward the Concord Town House, where 10 CA students appeared before the Concord Select Board on February 19. Organizing as part of Sunrise, a national youth movement to address climate change and create millions of jobs in the process, the students were some of many around the country appealing to city councils, town boards, and county commissions last week, in the hope that widespread local support will push federal action on the Green New Deal resolutions now before Congress. They were successful in urging the town of Concord to pass a symbolic resolution calling on the federal government to support the legislation.
