Amy AustinsonI am excited to be working at OSUAA as the newest Regional Program Director for Boise/Treasure Valley and Oregon (other than Portland metro).  Since graduating from OSU in 1997, I've worked for the Blazers and Seahawks as well as in the health care industry, and am now thrilled to be back in Corvallis.

I plan to establish a solid calendar of annual events that meet you where you are. But I need your help!  I welcome any thoughts you have on programs to consider, including fun activities for the family, young alumni events, faculty presentations or ways to connect around career conversations.

Of course I can’t do all of this without your support and feedback. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help OSU alumni connect with each other and with the university. I invite you to contact me with any ideas, helpful tips, or volunteer interest you may have at amy.austinson@oregonstate.edu or call me at: 541-737-8883.

I’m very much looking forward to meeting each of you over the next year and getting to know your areas of expertise. Join me in making this a great year for OSUAA and becoming a very special part of OSU history.
