The Wilkes University Alumni Association regularly prints an alumni directory, and the 2013 directory project is beginning! Over the next couple of months, Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI) will be contacting alumni like you via mail, phone, and e-mail to request that you update your information. We understand that you might not want to provide your information to just anyone, so we want you to know that their request for your information is legitimate.
Below is information about the project and PCI. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Office of Alumni Relations at 570-408-7787 or write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
