An Alumni Group is a new concept and can be formed when alumni are interested in networking and engaging, but in an area that does not meet the population requirement for a chartered chapter. A group can be formed when at least two people are willing to organize opportunities for the area alumni to meet and engage. One person shall serve as the contact for the group. This person can set up an informal network in their area and may create a Facebook group. The role of the contact would be to help organize social events. The Office of Alumni Relations will assist by promoting events for the group.
If a group continues to thrive, shows growth, holds successful events, and there are enough volunteers willing to form and sustain a chartered chapter, the group may request to become chartered. The decision to establish a chartered club will be at the sole discretion of the Office of Alumni Relations.
To get involved with an existing alumni chapter or create a group, please contact Jeff Wright, Director of Alumni Relations at 207-326-2337.
