      Good afternoon,

      I am looking to speak with alumni relations professionals who have experience organising alumni events and reunions overseas, for an upcoming Special Interest Group get together we are holding on the topic.

      Many thanks,

      Julia

      Hi Julia,
      Good topic and although I don’t work at a school, I have noticed the following.
      1) Most Universities hold alumni events overseas so they would be the best source. Uni’s also have specific chapters for each country. (or state)
      2) I’ve found mainly private boys schools and some top co-ed private schools hold events overseas.
      3) Most popular places I’ve seen are London, Singapore and now China. (Hong Kong also)
      4) Schools that have a sister school in the country tend to host more events.

      May I suggest reaching out to individual alumni directors from these schools via LinkedIn! I’ve found this to be the best way to engage with people directly and about a specific topic. DO you plan to host a panel?
      I can think of a dozen schools just writing this so you shouldn’t have an issue.

      Cheers Bobbi

      Hi Bobbi,

      Thank you so much for your response! I’d love to have a chat regarding the schools you refer to if that’s OK, my email address is juliag@igssyd.nsw.edu.au

      I have already reached out to a colleague at UTS who organises overseas events and has kindly agreed to talk at this SIG. I will also talk about my experience with a reunion we held in London last year. I would love to have one or two more speakers share their experience with the group.

      Best wishes,

      Julia

      Best Bobbi
