Are you thinking about establishing an alumni association, or do you want to grow and improve your existing alumni association?This book is prime reading material for anyone in education who is interested in developing the community relations of their school or organisation. In particular, the concept of managing an alumni association is explored. Ex-students are no longer a group schools can afford to ignore. Rather, schools need to be proactively engaged in creating and maintaining associations that serve the interests of both themselves and their ex-students. What benefits are to be had with such an association run in a school like yours? After having weighed these, how do you go about creating the association? The way in which you manage alumni relations will determine not only the strength of your association with them, but it will peak volumes about the success of your school's engagement with the broader community.
