#StayRelevant- A guide to modern day Alumni Relations

The world of Alumni Relations has come a long way since their inception in early eighteenth-century. At the start, most of the associations were entirely voluntary, supported solely by individual alumni. Volunteers maintained mailing lists, collected dues to support activities, produced publications, organized events and annual meetings.

Here we are now, after two centuries of hard work and building thousands of thriving alumni communities across the country. They have become a vital part of most of the educational institutions now thanks to the efforts of many outstanding professionals in Alumni Relations.

Alumni Relations has taken some interesting new directions over the last decade but very little had been documented and published about this. But thanks to various organizations including CASE, Blackbaud and blog channels (Alumni Futures, Alumni Access) we now have a good place to start with.

This e-book is our effort to contribute to this field of Alumni Relations and share our insights with the rest of the world. We are going to discuss a few of these trends and how they are shaping alumni engagement experiences.

This comprehensive guide is full of insights, case studies and examples from our partner schools to help institutions at any level with their Alumni Relations program.
