Kennedy-Western Alumni Groups come in all shapes and sizes, from regional social gatherings to high-tech business networking

 

The strong network of Kennedy-Western University Groups caters to everyone who attended Kennedy-Western University. Many of these Groups hold regular events, meetings and activities, encouraging alumni to network, socialise and become supporters of the University.

 

There is no one size fits all approach to running an Alumni Group, however, to help ensure that volunteer-led Alumni Groups continue to offer valuable support to the Kennedy-Western University Alumni Association, and that the Development and Alumni Relations team provides the best possible services to Alumni Groups around the world

Starting a Alumni Group

Kennedy-Western University Alumni Groups come in all shapes and sizes, from regional social gatherings to high-tech business networking

 

The strong network of Kennedy-Western Alumni Groups caters to everyone who attended Kennedy-Western University or later Warren National University. Many of these Groups hold regular events, meetings and activities, encouraging alumni to network, socialise and become supporters of the University.

 

There is no one size fits all approach to running an Alumni Group, however, to help ensure that volunteer-led Alumni Groups continue to offer valuable support to the Kennedy-Western University, and that the Development and Alumni Relations team provides the best possible services to Alumni Groups around the world, Alumni Groups must:

 

1. Adhere to the University’s Core values of freedom of thought and expression as well as freedom from discrimination.

 

2. Act as advocates and ambassadors for the University.

 

3. Organise regular events and initiatives with the aim of providing an opportunity for alumni to: continue their education, offer their skills, expertise and  

   networks to other alumni or the wider community and socialise with one another. We would expect a Group to organise a minimum of two events a

   year.

 

4. Actively encourage alumni to join the Group (without discrimination or prejudice).

 

5. Follow the University branding guidelines.

 

6. Be legally independent and financially self-sustaining.

 

7. Create and maintain a database of alumni members (please note that data protection laws currently prevent us from exchanging alumni contact

   details with Groups).

 

8. Appoint a Primary Contact to liaise with Development and Alumni Relations. The Primary Contact is responsible for ensuring that Development and

   Alumni Relations is updated about the Group’s activities and contact details. He or she does not need to be the leader of the Group and in many

   cases is not.

 

 

Each Alumni Group will have one, or more, convenors who run events, manage the mailing lists and advertise the Group. To make it easier for us at  

Development and Alumni Relations to keep in touch with the correct Group member, we require one person from the Group to be the office’s Primary

Contact.

 

The role of the Primary Contact

 

1. Receive the monthly email from Development and Alumni Relations and distribute news accordingly to the Group’s committee and/ or members.

 

2. Update Development and Alumni Relations with news of Group events and changes of contact details so that they can be publicised on the

   Development and Alumni Relations website.

 

3. Respond to occasional surveys and requests for information for publications from Development and Alumni Relations, including case studies.

 

4. Attend Development and Alumni Relations leadership training events if possible.

 

5. Update Development and Alumni Relations if he or she is unable to continue as the Primary Contact and provide details of the new Primary Contact.
