Alumni Association Strategic Plan
In late winter of 2008 the Office of Alumni Relations began implementation of the Strategic Plan for Alumni Centers of Influence. The purpose of the plan is to create organized groups of alumni who will advocate in their geographic area on behalf of GMC and promote the school to prospective students as well as potential friends who appreciate the school’s mission.
The process being used to accomplish this begins with the establishment of a club in a targeted geographic area. Initially several key alumni in the area who have professed or demonstrated interest in supporting the school and maintaining regular contact are identified. With their help, a luncheon, dinner, or reception is planned to which all alumni from the area are invited. In addition to the social aspects of bringing alumni together, this forum is used to present an informal “state of the school” program so that attendees are brought up to date on activities, plans, and associated needs, one of which is recruiting. We promote these events as “GMC networking and news.”
Continuing implementation, now in its third year, has seen events hosted all over Georgia, in Alabama, in Florida, in Washington, D.C., and In South Carolina with more yet to come. If you would like to be involved in organizing an event in your area, , please contact Earlene Hamilton, Alumni Relations Coordinator at email@example.com or call 478-387-4881.
