A strong candidate

Thirty-one Penn State alumni are vying for 10 elected positions on the Alumni Association’s Alumni Council. The new chief executive officer, Paul Clifford, wants to change the Alumni Association from an organization with static membership to a dynamic one focusing on service. Candidate Ned Brokloff could not agree more about how the Alumni Association must change, and how it needs to create the right opportunities to involve all our alumni. Therefore, I encourage you to support Ned Brokloff by voting for him.

Brokloff is a lifelong Penn Stater. Since moving to State College in 1967, he has seen State College and Penn State grow from 15,000 to 95,000 students and residents. After graduating from Penn State, he continues to be closely connected through mentoring of current students, including several past executive directors of Thon. He also participates in the engineering alumni society, the central Maryland alumni chapter, and the annual giving council to help keep Penn State vibrant. These varied activities give him the perfect perspective to be a strong candidate.

His campaign mantra is involvement. He wants to use his service on the Alumni Council to restore relationships between alumni and create opportunities to involve more alumni, making Penn State a better place for future and current students, staff and faculty, volunteers and officers, and alumni. Ned Brokloff will help make our university a place where we are … Penn State proud!
