Of special note to new members:
We're offering something new this year. Let us welcome you at the New Member Gathering on Thursday, October 22, 6:30–7:00 p.m.. Before you join the main reception and dinner, start with this small, relaxed get-together, offering the opportunity to meet and chat with other Council members, both new and experienced. Meet your mentor in person, ask questions, and learn some more about the
Council experience.

For all members:
From the many compelling speakers and events on the program, let me highlight just a few: the opening All-Council Lunch with Ryan Lombardi, Vice President of Student and Campus Life; a keynote address by internationally known, high-profile attorney David Boies; Elizabeth Garrett's first State of the University address at the Joint Annual Meeting; the gala Friday dinner, wearing an international flair this year; and the return of our award-winning Cornell Forensics Society with another rousing debate.

About Trustee-Council Annual Meeting

Every October, the Cornell University Council holds its annual meeting in Ithaca in conjunction with the Board of Trustees. At Trustee-Council Annual Meeting (TCAM) members are informed about current Cornell concerns, activities, and priorities. The meeting provides an opportunity to become more knowledgeable about the university and to ask questions, as well as to express views and ideas. Members also become more acquainted with Cornell faculty, staff, students, and administrators through committee meetings, discussions, lectures, and social events.
