Members of the Graduate School of Management Alumni Association’s board of directors have several responsibilities that help the association achieve its mission. Board members work closely with the School to identify School, student and alumni needs and pursue new initiatives in response to these needs. They represent fellow graduates and ensure that alumni have a positive impact on the ongoing growth and development of the School. Goals fit into a number of general categories, including:
The Business Partnership Program provides a vital link between the School and the business community—one that supports ongoing initiatives in fundraising, placement, admissions, and student and alumni services. The GSM Alumni Association’s (GSMAA) board of directors is committed to increasing the number of Business Partners, leveraging alumni who want to bridge their organization with the GSM.
When you become a Business Partner, you expand the GSM’s footprint in Northern California, one of Dean Currall’s key objectives for the School.
Each year, the Graduate School of Management asks alumni to “give back” to the School, whether in dollars, resources or involvement.
To be honest, I haven’t consistently supported the School in the 20 years since earning my MBA. Until recently, I had not sat down and considered why I should give back. This may be true for many alumni, and would like to share why I now place the GSM near the top of my charitable donation list.
Active volunteer efforts are one of the best ways to foster a close-knit alumni community. This year, the GSM Alumni Association’s board of directors is seeking to increase the ranks of the School’s volunteers, tapping into alumni who are willing to spend a few hours making a difference in the GSM community—with students, fellow alumni, faculty and staff. Volunteerism will increase engagement, affinity, communication and connectedness among alumni.
