History

Tunxis Community College began operations in October 1970 and held its first graduation in June 1972. Ten years later a small group of volunteer graduates initiated an effort to establish an alumni association. The founders wrote bylaws to govern its operation, registered the organization with appropriate state agencies and began holding fund raising events. Proceeds from the events are used to support student scholarships, recognize outstanding faculty and staff, and to help fund other requirements of the College not generally supported by public funds. Alumni Association leadership collaborates with College administration and the Tunxis Foundation and Advisory Board to support important initiatives as they evolve.

Membership

All graduates of Tunxis Community College degree and certificate programs, and those students who have left the College in good standing, shall be eligible for membership.

All active members are encouraged to attend regularly scheduled Board of Directors meetings and participate in association events or committees. If you would like to support your Alumni Association by volunteering or contributing a tax-deductible donation, please complete an application form. Checks should be made payable to: Alumni Association of TCC.

General Operation

The Alumni Association of TCC is governed by a Board of Directors elected to a three-year term of office. The Board of Directors meets as needed and is encouraged to attend the College’s commencement ceremony.

The executive committee includes the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer who also serve as members of the Board of Directors. Association business is accomplished through the use of committees composed of volunteers and chaired by board members.
