RCNJ Wins Chapter of the Year for Second Consecutive Time
The Rensselaer Alumni Association (RAA) announced that the Rensselaer Alumni Club of New Jersey (RCNJ) will be awarded the Craig W. Angell '35 Chapter of the Year Award for 2006-2007. The chapter will be recognized at the Annual RAA Awards dinner during Reunion Weekend June 8 in Troy with a formal presentation taking place in New Jersey sometime in the fall.
This is the second consecutive year that the RCNJ has won Chapter of the Year from the RAA. This is the third overall award for the RCNJ, with the first time in 2000-2001. The RCNJ now stands in second place behind the Boston Chapter (five-time winner) for overall Chapter of the Year awards. (See the list of previous Chapter of the Year winners for more information.)
RCNJ Chapter President Sandeep Nandy '94 said, "This is truly an honor to be recognized for the second consecutive year with this award.
