The meeting was held at DRI (Direct Relief International) which is a famous world humanitarian crisis aid organization which is headquartered in Santa Barbara. Ellen Cho, 2000, arranged the meeting and 15 alums enjoyed a box lunch with DRI speaker/Power-point. That was followed by a tour of the facility.

It was a very appropriate meeting for the college's "Day to Make a Difference" because DRI is non profit and welcomes volunteers.
