Elon Alumni Association

Professional Development Events

Our goal is to not only provide you with a variety of social opportunities to connect with each other and with the university throughout the year, but to also contribute to your ongoing professional life and development! Each Spring our 13 alumni chapters will put together events that fall under the category of Professional Development and Lifelong learning. These events will feature a variety of components such as a panel of alumni speakers, breakout sessions about relevant topics, faculty speakers, job placement assistance, and more!

We are always looking for new ways to provide you with content and programming that is relevant to your professional needs. If you have an idea for a professional development event in your area, please contact Jennifer Boozer, asssistant director of regional alumni engagement, at jboozer@elon.edu
