August 2021 Institutional Advancement Newsletter

Welcome to the August 2021 issue of the AALS Institutional Advancement Newsletter!


Upcoming Events: Navigating a Leadership Transition Webinar

A new dean presents both challenges and opportunities for development, alumni, and marketing teams. This webinar will discuss best practices on how to support new leadership. We will discuss implications for both alumni/development teams and marketing/communications teams – including new dean arrivals, launch plans, visits, and helping a new dean find their platform. Please join us for this important conversation!

Tuesday, September 21 | 12 p.m. Eastern | Archived video here
