The MU Alumni Association has topped its goal of 37,000 members. Next, the association wants to have more members than the University of Kansas Alumni Association, said David Roloff, director of membership and marketing for the MU group.

The KU group has more than 41,000 members.

Since 1995, memberships at the MU Alumni Association have increased by 12,153, up from 25,379. On June 29, the group announced that Cathy Herren had been hired as coordinator of membership services, a new position meant to help with the growth.

Herren will be involved in student membership development and retention, according to a release.

The MU Alumni Association has given out $200,000 in scholarships annually since 1994 and has awarded $250,000 in faculty incentive grants.

The association also keeps alumni informed about the MU campus and connected to it through reunions and homecoming events, according to its Web site.
