Pamplin Society

Pamplin Society is a council of volunteers established for the purpose of promoting, supporting and improving the Pamplin College of Business (Pamplin) and recognizing those who have done so in the past, through their membership in the Pamplin Advisory Council (PAC), distinguished service on a departmental advisory board, philanthropy or outstanding achievements in the business community or their profession. Pamplin Society members participate in a variety of initiatives and projects, including financial support, student enrichment, engagement by and with the business community, and other tasks that aid Pamplin in achieving its goals of excellence in education, research and engagement.

Pamplin’s own Dean Sumichrast has resurrected the Pamplin Society with a mission to engage alumni and provide a vehicle for Pamplin alumni to give back to VT and its business school in more ways than just a monetary commitment.  Specifically, the Pamplin Society will work on special projects at the request of the Dean and the PAC that will have a real impact on the school of business and its current students and alumni.  In addition, the Pamplin Society will host various networking and themed events during the year in an effort to get Pamplin alumni connected.
