It’s been eight years since I graduated from university, and I haven’t been to a single alumni event. I know that, as a business owner, they’re a handy networking opportunity, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.
I’m on the UVic alumni mailing list, and received an announcement of a BBQ and Vancouver Canadians game in August. It sounded like fun, but unfortunately I’ll be in Ontario for a family reunion that week.
My dear readers: have you kept in touch with your alumni associations, and has that been of social or professional benefit?
