Jack Kaye has served on the UWM Alumni Association Board of Trustees for almost six years. While his term as a trustee will end this spring, his commitment to UWMAA certainly will not. He shares, “I'll always be helping out here at UWM and I fully intend to continue to take advantage of the diverse events and programs that the Alumni Association offers.” Jack has served on the Panther Prowl 5K Leadership Team as well as the committee responsible for the upcoming Reds, Whites & Brews wine and beer tasting event taking place on February 26.
Of his time on the Board he states, “It has afforded me the chance to work with a group of truly outstanding people in an effort to help promote UWM as an institution in the community and around the world, and to create interesting and enriching programs for UWM alumni which will help to maintain or rekindle their relationship with the University and fellow alumni. I strongly encourage alumni to consider serving on the UWMAA Board or a committee.” Jack came to UWM from The University of Reading in England. Read full profile.
Barb Hunt had already been interested in getting more involved with UWM about two years ago when others told her about their service on the Alumni Association Board and suggested that she be nominated. She followed through on that suggestion and today serves as co-chair of the UWMAA Board of Trustees Marketing Committee. She brings a wealth of marketing, organizational and fund raising skills to her role on the Board.
Of her current role, she shares that “I enjoy being part of a larger community of alumni among friends I went to school with, have met since and are meeting while serving on the Board.” She also fondly recalls her student days at UWM, “I remember the football games, the Homecoming parade down Wisconsin Avenue and the fraternity floats we all worked on. Also the PIT in the Union where we all gathered for lunch, sitting at tables with friends and sorority sisters.” Read full profile.

Today, she brings her strong service background to her role as Chair of UWMAA's nominating committee. Her volunteer leadership is rooted in her transformative experience at UWM.
