Sessions


March 8, 1 p.m. ET 
Opening Panel Discussion

During the CCAE COVID-19 series, CCAE brought together several seasoned Alumni professionals to discuss realities associated with changing strategies, shifting priorities and engagement plans.

To kick-off the 2021 Alumni Leaders’ Summit, CCAE is getting the band back together. It is imperative to keep the conversation going. How many temporary plans became permanent? How many events are staying online and what, does engagement look like in 2021?

In the months since the COVID series, there is STILL no crystal ball, and we still cannot predict the future. Therefore, we do what we do best, we collaborate and share ideas

Topics

  • Are you engaging/supporting with International Alumni more than in previous years? If so, how?
  • The show went on, how did you handle events like homecoming, reunion weekends, convocation and other annual get-togethers?
  • Have you introduced/invested in platforms or tools to better connect with Alumni moving forward?
  • What “temporary” measures did your team incorporate to handle the COVID19 challenges that seem to here to stay?
  • How has your role changed? Do you think this is temporary or are the expectations of Alumni Relations professionals forever altered?

In today's busy world, we are all grappling with ways to appeal to, and engage with, our alumni. Join the discussion for tips on how to meet your alumni "where they live" to provide regional opportunities for engagement. We will offer specific relationship building ideas such as welcome and mentorship programs that pair established alumni with younger grads and how to utilize data, LinkedIn and personal visits to expand outreach. Let Jennifer and John share some tools on how to create a menu of experiences for your grads around the world.
