IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Kristina L. Meyer of Iowa City has joined the staff of the University of Iowa Foundation as director of annual giving programs. Meyer has been the director of marketing at the University of Iowa's Alumni Association since May 1994.

"We are delighted that Kris will be joining us to lead the Foundation's annual giving program," said Susan Shullaw, associate vice president for communications and campaign support. "Her marketing background, familiarity with the UI, and extensive experience at the UI Alumni Association bring an energetic new approach to our efforts to attract, retain, and encourage higher levels of annual support from alumni and friends. Building the university's base of yearly contributors is key to future fund-raising success, and I'm confident Kris will help us meet and exceed our goals."

Meyer was previously a senior planner in Market Analysis & Media Services for CMF&Z/Young and Rubicam in Des Moines. She has also worked as a media planner for the Minneapolis firms of Martin Williams Advertising, and H. & W. Media Corporation. Meyer earned a bachelor of arts degree in journalism and mass communication from Iowa State University in 1987. She is currently an M.B.A. student at the University of Iowa.
