PRLog - May 2, 2012 - WASHINGTON -- In the spirit of collaboration the NC A&T Alumni Association - Washington,DC Chapter is hosting a "MEAC Mix and Mingle" will take place on May 17, 2012 at 5pm at Lounge 201 in Washington, DC. This is the first of a series of events to connect area alumni to their counterparts from other institutions within the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) leading up to the 2013 MEAC Basketball Tournament.
The "MEAC Mix and Mingle" on May 17 will kick off a series of professional, social and community service opportunities to engage alumni and supporters. Enjoy complementary appetizers, networking activities and the opportunity to connect with leadership from DC area alumni chapters. There will be a number of prizes and giveaways to encourage area alumni to become reunited with their institution.
Since Norfolk State University's shocking upset in the first round of the NCAA tournament, it is apparent that alumni of the MEAC institutions must continue to connect and engage in venues outside of the athletic arena to showcase our academic and professional successes. The NC A&T Alumni - DC Chapter is pleased to host this event and hopes that fellow MEAC alumni chapters nationwide will follow suit and support this effort to host similar events leading up to the 2013 MEAC tournament.

On the day of the event tickets are $7. A portion of the funds will go to support the winner of the largest alumni participation contest and the
