Cambridge Alumni Groups come in all shapes and sizes. From regional social gatherings to high-tech business networking, the 400-strong network of Cambridge Alumni Groups caters to everyone who attended Cambridge.
Email recruitment mailings are an effective way of engaging alumni with Alumni Groups. Alumni are encouraged to respond directly to the Group making it easy for you to electronically collate email addresses.
One of the most common questions we’re asked is ‘How can we engage younger alumni/recent graduates?’ So what can Groups offer recent graduates and how can they adapt so as to offer younger alumni what they want?
Many of our Alumni Groups are increasingly using online platforms as a channel to engage alumni with their Group. Development and Alumni Relations can provide assistance and support to help you set up or improve your online activity.
The checklist has been compiled by the Development and Alumni Relations Events team to provide support to Groups when preparing to run an event. While this list is by no means exhaustive we hope it will give you some suggestions for good practice.
Many Group events rely on finding an informative and enjoyable speaker to give a lecture or after dinner speech. A large number of senior members of the University are more than happy to come and speak at such events.
