Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The University of Amsterdam hosted a Forum on Alumni Leadership produced by the Yale Global Alumni Leadership Exchange (YaleGALE). Universities throughout the Netherlands sent representatives. They shared best practices in alumni relations and development. They also learned how to identify, cultivate, and engage alumni as volunteers and leaders working for, and on behalf of, the university.
The Forum included presentations, panels, and discussions specifically designed for alumni relations professionals and volunteers. Networking opportunities were provided at both lunch and cocktails afterwards.
In the evening, a dinner was held for Presidents of Dutch Universities along with the Directors of their alumni relations offices. and officials from the Education Ministry.
