Women in Leadership at Lafayette, a committee of 25 alumnae and friends interested in maintaining strong ties with the College, has a new name and chair. This fall, Karen Kirby '87 took the reins of the Council of Lafayette Women. The new name is part of an effort to broaden the membership base of the organization, which began as an advisory committee to the vice president for development and college relations during Lafayette's recently concluded capital campaign.

“The group got off to a great start under Robin Wiessmann '75. We're eager to continue holding activities to bring Lafayette alumni together–primarily women, though we do have events that include spouses and family,” explains Kirby, a homemaker with four children, who is married to Jefferson Kirby '84 and lives in Green Village, N.J. “We're not just seeking professional women, but all women alumnae. We're just anxious to create events where Lafayette women would like to get together and rekindle their feelings for Lafayette and support it.”

Activities planned for 2002 include a wine tasting, a cooking demonstration, a tea social, and a day at a spa. The committee is also planning its third symposium for spring 2003.
