If you have recently become a volunteer or joined a local alumni board, this is an exciting time for you to grow, learn, and create a big impact in your alumni community. The Alumni Relations team is here to help with guidance, context, and historical data for your market.

The Booth alumni leader resources provided here are designed to spark ideas, provide best practices and guidelines, and help you understand how we operate.

General Overview and Expectations

Chicago Booth has a global community of more than 55,000 alumni and many clubs and organizations. We also have class- or cohort-based opportunities to volunteer. Chicago is our largest alumni market, but our community extends to hundreds of cities across the globe. Your events and activities should mirror your market in size. Alumni relations will strategically partner with you to drive success.

What Makes a Club Successful?

Successful clubs are driven by alumni volunteers who care about connecting alumni to other alumni and extending the thought leadership of the school through events. They are able to plan and lead boards of other volunteers whose common mission is to build the alumni community. Alumni relations evaluates club health on four major key performance indicators: leadership, programming, communication, and collaboration.
