|125th Anniversary Medal - Alumni Association|
Fostering links between the University and its alumni is the prime function of our Alumni Association. Established nearly a century ago this Association relies heavily on the voluntary work of branches throughout New Zealand and overseas and especially on the vital co-ordinating role of the executive committee here at Lincoln. Over recent years the number of alumni has greatly increased, necessitating major restructuring of the Association and the way it operates. Pivotal to these reforms was the willing voluntary work of many individuals. The following group have made a major contribution and their service to the Association is gratefully acknowledged.
