Alumni Event Organizers Needed!
The Office of Alumni Affairs is looking for Beloit alumni to plan and host alumni events across the country. It's simple, fun, and very rewarding. Volunteer today or contact the Alumni Office for more information!
Here's how it works:
1. You pick the date, time, and location of your event and make local arrangements.
2. We handle invitations and RSVPs.
3. We'll either come to your event to help you host or we'll send you a swag kit containing everything you'll need, including name tags for your guests.
Tips for Volunteers
- Beloiters are a diverse group; check for global and religious holidays when picking your date.
- Plan the event 6-7 weeks out. Print invites have a one week turn-around time and should go out about a month prior to the event. Note: a shorter time-frame will be accomodated by email invites only.
- Always plan for visiting time. If the event is a theater production or sporting event, plan for pre- or post-show drinks or a tailgate party.
- Rule of thumb is about 15-20% of invited alumni attend an event. See the distribution below and book space accordingly.
- Personal calls from the host always boosts attendance.
