The second annual North Carolina General Assembly reception will give alumni and friends of UNCG a chance to make connections, share information and answer questions about UNCG’s contributions to economic development, breakthroughs in scientific research, development of future leaders and service to the people of our state, nation and world.

The reception is a Spartan Legislative Network (SLN) event. SLN is an organization of alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends who support UNCG. The network’s mission is to promote the university as one of the flagship institutions of the UNC system and as a leader in higher education globally.

Last year, 145 people turned out for the General Assembly reception, which this year coincides with the opening day of the legislative session. State legislators, Greensboro elected officials, and Chancellor Linda P. Brady are expected to attend.

Cost to attend the reception is $10, which covers the costs of a bus ride to Raleigh, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and beverages.

The reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. on May 14 at the Cardinal Club’s north dining room, 150 Fayetteville Street, Raleigh.
