The following alumni community initiatives were adopted and supported by the Reps:

  • Care and concern calls to community members who may be more socially isolated at this challenging time;

  • The establishment of a global Alumni Community Business Directory;

  • The continued sourcing and sharing of Friends’ stories.

The Reps noted that additional representation in this group from alumni community members from leaving classes of 2005 to 2015 would be of immense value, particularly community members with skills and aptitude in social media.
