Professional Pathways events offer professional development, networking for Elon alumni

Professional Pathways events host expert speakers in alumni chapters across the country.

With event titles such as, “Entrepreneurship in the Triangle” and “Elon 102,” Professional Pathways events are part of Elon’s commitment to the professional and personal development of alumni. The seven largest alumni chapters plan at least one professional development event each year, with the Triangle and Charlotte chapters recently hosting events in April.

“In the midst of plenty of social and sporting events, Elon also values developing the careers of alumni, even after they’ve graduated,” said Jennifer Boozer, assistant director of regional engagement. “The Office of Alumni Engagement is committed to continuing the Elon experience for our alumni and these events are a great example of that.”   

During “Entrepreneurship in the Triangle,” local experts shared insights and advice for growing a thriving entrepreneurial community in the triangle area. During the panel discussion, each expert shared their personal successes, mistakes and lessons learned that have led to their professional accomplishments. The event was moderated by Elon’s own Adam Constantine ’10, who manages Elon’s rapidly growing social media presence.

‚ÄčThe Charlotte Alumni Chapter’s event, “Elon 102,” had a wide variety of experts ranging from real estate, finance, personal branding and fitness and nutrition. Alumni broke into small discussion groups to ask questions to the speakers in areas relevant to their lives. There was also ample time for unstructured networking, while enjoying the barbeque provided by the chapter.

Upcoming Professional Pathways event dates will soon be announced for both the Washington, D.C., and New York alumni chapters. For more information about your regional alumni programs, click here.
