A letter from new Chicago Alumni Chapter President, Tarek Uddin

by Tarek Uddin, Published January 19, 2012


Greetings from the Chicago EMU Alumni Chapter!

My name is Tarek Uddin and I am the new President of the Chicago Alumni Chapter. In this leadership role, I intend to bring my passion for Eastern Michigan University and my knowledge of marketing to advance alumni outreach in the Chicago area. I plan to create some amazing ways to get involved with your EMU Alumni Chicago Chapter through networking, social media, and special discounts for alumni only. Also, please let me know if you would like to be part of LGBT alumni activities as well so I can identify specific networking events and discounts.

Professionally, I am the Marketing Coordinator for the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce. It’s a non-profit member based organization of merchants and local businesses. We foster economic growth and development and strive to be a premier destination in Chicago to live, dine, shop and play. This experience adds to my ability to find opportunities for EMU alumni in our city.

Please make sure to keep in touch with the Office for Alumni Relations, especially if you have recently moved. You can update your address and request your FREE Alumni Association membership packet on their website: In addition, make sure to connect with the Chicago Alumni Chapter on Facebook.

For now, let me send my best wishes from the Chicago Alumni Chapter and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in the near future!

Tarek Uddin, ‘07
Eastern Michigan Alumni
