What is an Alumni Chapter Event Planning Committee?
Alumni Chapter Event Planning Committees, what are they? Through alumni chapter event planning committees, alumni are able to develop and maintain friendships and networking opportunities with other alumni, share nostalgic ties to the past, and strengthen their relationship to their alma mater and current students.

There are no dues to be active in the alumni association. Alumni have opportunities to join fellow alumni, friends, and family at local alumni events for social outings, enrichment opportunities and networking connections. Alumni Chapter Planning Committe volunteers identify and plan local events and activities in their area with university support, make connections with other alumni, connect with recent graduates, and participate in many university related opportunities in their area. There are opportunities for alumni to become involved at whatever level you choose.
