There's a reason why alumni programs are the fastest growing segment in community college development! Simply put, alumni are loyal because they value their community college experience and are ready to give back. While many community colleges are just beginning to cultivate their alums, sufficient experience now exists to share best practices and strategies for success. Participants will learn the "nuts and bolts" of alumni development along with special attention to adapting proven practices for use at home. With tracks for both advanced and beginning programs, please join us this summer in Denver!

"One of the best decisions I ever made was joining CRD. When I began my career as the development officer for Panola College in 2001, I had no experience in fundraising. I had a lot of questions, and when I needed help the leadership and members of this organization were more than happy to provide it. Their willingness to take time to help someone they had never met still amazes me to this day, and that is why I am proud to be a member of the CRD."
