Maximizing International Alumni Relationships -- Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 4pm EST

As institutions continue to globalize their strategic plans, education providers are motivated to find and engage former students distributed across countries and over continents.  "International" or "global" alumni relations is the outreach to, and engagement of, these internationally-located alumni.

The purpose of international alumni relations is to leverage the support of this potential group of brand ambassadors.  The cumulative effect of this will increase your global brand projection, boost international enrollment and fundraising, and create new employment opportunities for current students and recent graduates.  It's about making good use of the powerful resources you already have. 

This webinar reviews six value propositions for global alumni relations and encourages participants to prioritize their next steps for engaging an increasingly valuable constituency. 

Three key takeaways:

1. The ability to clearly articulate the value proposition for investing in international alumni relations

2. Ability to prioritize next steps for stewarding international alumni volunteers.

3. Expanding one's awareness of 'global' alumni with an emphasis on identifying 'transnational' alumni.

* Presenter for this topic is Gretchen, Dobson, EdD., President of Global Alumni Relations at Academic Assembly, Inc.
