The Alumni Association is a group working together to foster our spirit among alumni of many generations. An association is chartered either as a chapter-based or area-based Alumni Association. Alumni Associations plan social and philanthropic events just like a chapter, and many Alumni Associations award scholarships to collegiate members.
Delegates of a chartered Alumni Association get two votes at the annual convention business meetings. Please contact our Director of Alumni Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about Alumni Associations.
An Alumni Association has a variety of purposes and may be different based on the individual associations’ preference. The main focus areas for an alumni association are generally among the following:
The first step in the formation of an Alumni Association in your area is to form an interest group and a steering committee. The interest group is for any members that are simply interested in getting involved in an Alumni Association and wish to participate in the events, aid the local chapter(s), and/or receive communications. The steering committee is for those members that are interested in coming up with the ideas for the events, planning the events, communicating with members, being the point man/men, working with the Director of Communications and Alumni Engagement and/or aiding in the logistics.
If you, or other Sammys you know, are interested in starting an Alumni Association in your area, start to gather names and contact information, complete the Alumni Association Interest Form, and contact Kelby Dolan at the International Headquarters for assistance.
