I have been working on some leadership alumni projects of late so decided to start a LinkedIn group and a Facebook group called Alumni Ideas Bank – anyone who is involved in working with an alumni group or organisation please feel free to join – the idea is to act as a forum to network and connect, exchange ideas, ask for advice, share resources and assist in managing your alumni group or organisation more effectively and more creatively.
Alumni Ideas Bank is a group to assist those people involved in supporting or managing an alumni organisation or group. Alumnis range from the large, corporate groups to small, community groups. All such organisations face challenges such as what are effective ways of engaging alumni and encouraging them to participate, what technologies can I use to better link alumni, what ideas can I generate to make my networking events more creative and effective….the list goes on. If you have a great idea to share about something you’ve done that worked well, if you are after advice from peers about a new program you’re developing, if you would just like to connect with people facing similar challenges and thinking about similar issues to you, then please join in and participate in the Alumni Ideas Bank!
