VICTAS Online Alumni Relations SIG

Innovations, Opportunities, Changes and Successes in 2020.

Join us for the first of this two part interactive SIG to discuss how you have changed, innovated and adapted your alumni relations program in this year without face to face gatherings. We plan to have an open discussion on some of the ideas that have succeeded and perhaps some that haven’t! This is your opportunity to share and learn from others within our vast network of Educate Plus alumni professionals.

Russell has led the Old Haileyburians Association to become one of the country’s most well known and respected alumni organisations. Russell has implemented a huge range of innovative events, services, clubs, communication techniques and engagement tools for the 18,000 plus members of the OHA.
