As an historic Convocation finishes, we move into the traditional meeting of the Alumni/ae Executive Committee.  The AAEC started meeting yesterday afternoon and continues to meet this morning.  It is the vehicle that provides an alumni perspective on the issues facing the Seminary.  These dedicated men and women are elected by our alums around the country.  They give generously of their time by coming to campus for these meetings.

Our alums are a vital source of strength at Virginia Theological Seminary. It is their passion, interest, and concern that helps keep the Seminary strong.  Their love for this place is deep.  This affection isn't simply the memory of their friends in their class, but it is also an awareness of the remarkable work that God does in their lives while they are in Seminary.

So a very warm welcome back home to our AAEC.  Thank you for continuing to keep the Seminary strong; thank you for making the journey.

The Very Rev Ian Markham
Dean and President
