Meet the members
alumni associations board of directors is a group of dedicated leaders
who oversee activities and services for alumni, represent the alumni voice to
the College administration, and coordinate alumni volunteer work on behalf of
their alma mater. Some are well known; others work behind the scenes. To introduce
them and their contributions to alumni life, Scope offers a new series
of alumni-board profiles.

Chair, Alumni Relations
as an admissions contact since graduation, and as his class president since 1993,
Rob Resnick 88 quickly accepted the nomination to serve on the alumni board.
"I believed it would be an excellent opportunity to continue serving Skidmore
College," he says. "The board combines alumni with diverse backgrounds
and experience, yet all equally committed to the College and its future."
As chair of alumni reunion, Resnick assists reunion-class volunteers in planning
activities sponsored by the College and also oversees the weekend itself.
In his student
days, Resnick was active in the Skidmore College Democrats,
was president of the Debate Club, and served a three-year term on the SGA Senate,
while working as a peer tutor and research assistant. A government major who graduated
from New England School of Law in 1991, Resnick had a three-year stint as a special
assistant attorney general for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,
a yearly elected position. He then became a judge advocate in the United States
Armys Legal Services Agency. Hes been stationed in New Jersey, Virginia,
and Korea and is now at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, as chief of criminal law.
Says Resnick, "I translated my four-year record of campus and community service
into a career of public service. Serving my country has been a great source of
pride and professional development."
returns to campus, not just for alumni board meetings, but also to speak to government
students, most recently as a guest of the Law School Forum to discuss LSAT preparation,
strategies for getting accepted to law schools, and the ups and downs of the first-year
law-school experience. Resnick also helped to establish the curriculum for Skidmores
International Affairs Program.
Although his term
on the alumni board will end this spring, Resnick plans to remain involved as
a class volunteer, serving out his tenure as class president and assisting with
his classs reunion planning and fundraising activities. SG
