Enrollment limited: advance sign up required (see contact below)

The purpose of this course is to share ideas and best practices among FSILG student and alumni members in developing their alumni networks. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples of what their own chapters use to develop alumni networks and keep alumni connected, as well as any challenges they have faced in creating or maintaining active alumni networks. The Alumni Association has recently collected a series of communication, event planning, and fundraising items into an "FSILG toolkit", and the contents of the toolkit will be covered as well. Excellence in alumni relations is recognized by the D. Reid Weedon' 41 Award. There will be a short presentation of what went into the applications of winning chapters for the past few years. Please register so enough pizza and refreshments are ordered. Alumni and undergraduates invited.
