Four of the 2015 Board members, all of whom were seeking reelection, were elected by acclamation to another one-year term on the Board. Re-elected were Gil Gerald as President, Tom Fiorella as Vice President, Tom Wong as Treasurer, and Vern Ford as Secretary. Also elected was Nelson Hernandez, Sr. to serve as Sargent-at-Arms. Alex Scott, 2015 Sargent-at-Arms, decided not to run for re-election. In other actions, the membership approved the use of a proposed logo for the Gallery House Program, including the use of the logo on mugs for graduates of the Gallery House Fellowship Program. The quarterly meeting dates for the coming year were set for April 30, July 30, and October 29, and the date for the next annual meeting was set for January 28, 2017. Pending confirmation by Pratt Institute, Alumni Day will be on September 17. November 19 was set as the date for the DGT Alumni Association's Annual Thanksgiving Dinner.  A new development is that in July, an exhibit and reception featuring creative works by Alumni will be scheduled in conjunction with the July meeting of the membership. This is a new annual event that will occur in the life of the DGT Alumni Association.
