Greetings BAR Heels,
A little over a year ago, life as we knew it shifted. We have experienced or witnessed a great deal of change and loss. However, some things remain the same: our commitment to BAR. This year’s reunion will take place Oct. 15-17 and will be held at the Sheraton Imperial. Please note, this is not Carolina’s Homecoming Weekend. (BAR was moved to an earlier weekend due to lack of hotel availability.)
The events of the past year have not only changed how we gather with friends and family, but it has also challenged us to move from our business-as-usual mindset to an approach that will give us the opportunity to welcome a year of new possibilities. As we work toward finalizing the reunion agenda, we hope you will be open to different ways to experience BAR. Our goal is to be innovative in our planning, recognize our limitations and live up to the potential you have come to know, expect and love.
My involvement with BAR began as a volunteer in the late 1990s and continued until 2009 while I was a GAA staff member. Now that I am chair, my involvement has come full circle – what a blessing.
Follow us on social media (uncblackalumni) and watch your email for reunion updates.
