Creating Alumni Industry Networks
Wed, Sep 20, 2017 ,12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Given the ever-increasing amount of interest in professional programming, it makes sense that alumni are now focused on initiatives that gather alumni based on industry experience. In addition to regional chapters and identity-based groups, professional networks are the latest structure for Alumni Associations and Alumni Relations Offices to support, and many Alumni Career offices will be asked to find a way to incorporate these networks into their purview. This webinar will help ACSN members consider the unique challenges and opportunities that are a part of the Industry Network structure.

Join Katie DeBeer of Western New England University, Sarah Rawls of Emory, and Kate Schuster of The George Washington University to learn about their experiences launching/maintaining robust and emerging professional networks. In this introductory conversation on a topic that ACSN will address throughout the year, the presenters will share tips on the types of volunteers needed to oversee these groups, recommended volunteer responsibilities, and programming examples.

Katie DeBeer is the Director of Alumni Engagement at Western New England University. Prior to her current role, Katie was the Associate Director for Professional and Volunteer Services at UMass Amherst. She was also a frontline fundraiser for several leading non-profit organizations.
Sarah Rawls is the Director of Alumni Career Services at the Emory Alumni Association, overseeing programming that includes a growing amount of professional networks. Prior to her current role, Sarah served for three years as Associate Director of Alumni Career Services at Georgetown University.
