October 2021 Institutional Advancement Newsletter

Welcome to the October issue of the AALS Institutional Advancement Newsletter!


Upcoming Webinar – Exploring Our Love/Hate Relationship with Alumni Magazines

Creating and distributing an alumni magazine is a herculean effort. It takes time, money, and collaboration. The process has evolved substantially in recent years. How does your school think about engaging and connecting your alumni with this particular effort? Who still prints magazines? How many pages are they? How do you approach the question of print vs. digital? What has changed over the years in your approach and what has stayed the same? How do you measure success? This and much more will be discussed during our next webinar!

Tuesday, November 9 / 3 p.m. Eastern, 12 p.m. Pacific / Register Here


And don’t forget to register for next week’s webinar, “Campaigns … Tricks or Treats?”

Wednesday, October 27 / 12 p.m. Eastern, 9 a.m. Pacific / Register Here
