Here are 7 Reasons to Engage Your Alumni Association
Engage Your Alumni Association
Building a network of other OBs increases your connections. It offers chances for alumni to rub shoulders with one another at games, socials or events, like galas and community service functions. Not only is this a great way to mingle and enjoy yourself, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to expand your professional connections and meet new people.
Joining an alumni association is the easiest way to give back to the school. Numerous other, building and development projects have been and continue to be run by old boys association and would not be possible without the financial support of alumni donations.
KCOBs are always informed. Career opportunities and networking events are two of the biggest reasons to join. There are KCOBs at all levels of organisations worldwide. However, news has a way of getting to alumni before the general public.
Expand Your Skills
Access to career support is important, especially when you’re just starting out. OBs provide an avenue to get solid mentors through workshops, webinars, professional job databases and career coaching even business funding
Supporting your school shows pride in your education. While things may not be as wonderful now as they were in your time, you can continue to support the college to ensure it is still here in another 100 years (like many foreign colleges). OBs support is essential to keeping this pride alive!
Help Other Students
The association is a great way to help current students. Whether through scholarship donations, activity support or awards, all partly funded through membership dues and can bring about a whole lot of good for students who are now in the position you once occupied. (We’re sure that you probably appreciated the awards you got back then too! Because Old Boys were active also)
Increase Your Value
How does your high school increase your? It’s simple. The better a school is, the more popular it is and the more reputable when high profile alumni exist in different spheres of private and public sector, home and abroad. When you join this organisation, it helps increase the school’s reputation. In turn, this makes your more of a valued asset anywhere you are, Win-win!.
