An active alumni board that engages your most valued alumni leaders is an important asset to your institution’s success. However, many alumni boards lack direction and purpose, severely curtailing their abilities to contribute productively to the institution.

Join us in San Antonio to learn how to help you make the most of your alumni board members’ involvement. Representing alumni relations, annual giving, academic and board member’s perspectives, our expert instructors will share practical tips and advice on the following:

Intentionally defining a board's purpose, roles, and strategy

Identifying and recruiting effective board members and leaders

Onboarding, educating, and training new members

Executing effective board meetings

Addressing communication issues within the board

Establishing board metrics and assessment


This conference is carefully designed for both alumni relations professionals charged with increasing board effectiveness, as well as alumni board members. You are highly encouraged to bring a team including institutional representatives, as well as board members. To encourage team participation, when you register two people, receive a third registration for 50% off.
