Regional Alumni Networks Underway
Alumni from across the region and nationally are beginning to organize locally. They are working together through diverse strengths and networking strategically to reach out and serve alumni.
Last year we added three groups. They include Indy North, Fort Wayne, Cincinnati, OH yet many other alumni have hosted events in places like, Southern, CA; Atlanta, GA; Roanoke, VA; and throughout Florida. Alumni are finding these networks beneficial in helping to better serve the needs of local alumni.
We invite alumni to join or help start a regional network. “Alumni are a vital resource for students and fellow alumni,” says Rick Carder, IWU Alumni Director. The value of local alumni contributing to the growth of these chapters are the goals of organizers.
“Local volunteer leadership is an effective way to further the reach if the Alumni Association,” says Greg Smith, Alumni Board President. Alumni are encouraged to take charge of their networks and give leadership to others networks by sending a request to increase local opportunities beyond the classroom.
