In his efforts to engage alumni and other D.C.s about Palmer's
historic identity documents and share exciting developments
at the West Campus, West Campus President William Meeker,
D.C., M.P.H., has traveled from one end of the state to the
other—as well as to the nation's capital.
In addition to identity presentations at CCA District meetings
throughout California, Dr. Meeker was a guest speaker at the
ACA Board of Delegates meeting in Washington, D.C. (see story
on page 19.) He also hosted a special dinner meeting attended
by nearly two dozen Palmer alumni on the West Campus in
September. As well as providing this actively-engaged group of
alumni with an overview of the Palmer Identity documents,
Dr. Meeker discussed the Palmer College ad that appeared in the
programs sold at the final four home games of the San Francisco
49ers' 2012 season and on the 49ers' website.
A poster-size copy of the ad was on display for alumni to see,
and each attendee received a program-sized copy of the ad
in their information packets. Meeting attendee John Moore,
D.C. (West '87), was the lucky winner of the drawing for a
pair of tickets to a 49ers' game.
"The West Campus recorded its largest four-quarter period of
enrollment in nearly a decade for the period of Winter '12 to
Fall '12," says Dr. Meeker. "Much of the credit for the positive
enrollment trends at the West Campus goes to Julie Behn (West
Campus enrollment director) and her team. However, I also
have to acknowledge our alumni for their referrals of new
students. This is the ultimate compliment because it reflects
their respect for the skill-building program we provide our
students and confidence in the caliber of graduating doctor."
