Dear College of Nursing Alumni, 

Welcome to the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Nursing Alumni Association (CONAA)!

The Board meets quarterly and has volunteer opportunities available with the following committees:  Alumni Representatives, Awards, Bylaws, Fundraising, Special Events and Student Mentoring.  On the Friday of UK Homecoming Weekend, we host a luncheon for alumni to network, hear updates about the College and participate in a silent auction.  Proceeds benefit student scholarships through the CONAA’s Boomerang Society:  www.uky.edu/nursing/alumni.  

Join us to help support and encourage the next generation of nursing students!  If I or any of the board members can provide additional information, please let us know.  I also encourage you to join the UK Alumni Association (UKAA) at:  www.ukalumni.net.  Membership not only benefits you personally, it directly benefits the CONAA through additional funding provided from UKAA.

All the best and GO CATS!
