PLC Alumni Advisory Outlines Strategies for 2011/12
The Presidents Leadership Class Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) met in late July to discuss the group’s progress over the previous year and to create a plan for future Alumni involvement in the Presidents Leadership Institute. In the last year, the AAB put on several events including the “Gift of Google” lecture. These events were deemed a success and more will be planned for the future
Through the course of the meeting, the board was able to define objectives and goals to create a compelling environment for the Alumni to interact with the Presidents Leadership Institute (PLI). The new vision statement for the AAB is, “To Give Back as an Alumni Group and Do Great Things.” The new mission of the Alumni Board, “to increase Alumni Involvement on all levels and to become a “Hub” for all things leadership,” accompanies this vision. Also in development is an Alumni database, which will collect information to allow Alumni to be an effective resource for the program, students and eachother.
The hub idea is a compelling component to the AAB’s mission that fits into Executive Director Steve Grace’s and the PLI Board vision. The idea behind creating the President’s Leadership Institute as a host for PLC opens up opportunities for the program to interact with a broader spectrum of the community. PLC Alumni in the meeting suggested that PLI could be a leadership resource for Colorado and would like to see the organization move in that direction.
As the Alumni try to shape their path in PLI, look for increased involvement from former students in PLI programs. The Alumni are a vital part of the ascension to greater things for the organization and the ideas put forth in the meeting reflected this feeling. Look for more to come from the Alumni in future months.
