Elon Alumni Association

Regional Alumni Programs Volunteer Information

Are you one of our wonderful regional volunteers, or are you interested in becoming one? Thanks so much for your interest and for devoting your time, energy and talent to Elon. The information below will help shed light on the many ways you can get involved with the Office of Alumni Engagement and, for current volunteers, give you the resources you need to help you and your chapter succeed.

For prospective volunteers

Alumni chapters connect and engage Elon alumni in their local communities. They are a partnership between the Office of Alumni Engagement and alumni volunteers. For information about volunteering with your local regional program, contact Joe Ward, coordinator of regional alumni engagement, at jward18@elon.edu or (336) 278-7445. 

Alumni Chapters

  • Have a designated chapter president and 4-plus board members, depending on the size and needs of the region; president must attend annual regional leaders workshop at Elon.
  • Host at least four events per year including the Welcome to the City event, National Networking Night event, a service event and other events that fall into the categories of networking, professional development, service and reconnecting with Elon.
  • Work with the Office of Alumni Engagement to plan and implement university-sponsored events in the area.
  • Maintain a chapter Facebook page to market events to local alumni.
  • Adhere to all alumni engagement deadlines, especially submitting calendar action plans in a timely manner so events can be marketed through university resources (i.e. - two print newsletters or postcards per year, one email per month and mention in The Magazine of Elon).
  • Present one local graduate with a Chapter Member of the Year Award.
