The Ideal Alumni Association

This article is purely apolitical and is necessitated for the enlightenment of members, managers of the Alumni, and for the good of the Association; it should remain in such confinement.

The article is not absolute in content but maybe relative to redefine the objectives of the group and break the chuckleheaded challenges through a sharp-witted, ultrasmart approach to build a very formidable and enviable Alumni. The primary purpose of an Alumni is to bring all members under one united fold for friendship, fellowship, and progress. The others will be discussed in this article as we continue. 

THE SOCIAL COMPONENTS OF AN ALUMNI

 Although the Alumni Association is completely social in composition, there are many dimensions to it if the purpose and objectives must be reached; we shall therefore look into the various dimensions. 

ALMA MATER

This is another primary focus in building the ideal ALUMNI; the school must receive imprints of impacts by the Alumni byways;

*Donation of infrastructures or maintenance of existing ones.

*Donation of writing materials, laboratory equipment, and textbooks.

*Scholarships for indigent students,

*Gift awards for best-performing students in academics and sports, 

*Career orientation/talks, 

*Campaign against antisocial activities and behaviors amongst students. 

*Organizing and sponsoring school debates and clubs.

*Mentorship, leadership, and skill acquisition programs for school teenagers and students.

*Encouraging sporting activities by donation of sporting facilities and materials.

CHARITY AND HUMANITARIAN ACTIVITIES. 

The Alumni is a platform that offers social humanity services. These include;

*Visit Hospitals, 

*Visit Orphanage Homes,

*Visit selected Old School Teachers,  

*Reaching out to identified selected indigent persons in various communities.

 MEMBERS SOCIALS

These are programs designed for fun and interaction between members. Those are possible through;

*Members REUNION 

*Luncheon,

*Dinner, and

*Award parties.

Those could be sponsored or hosted by able members, groups in partnership with the Alumni, or be entirely sponsored by the Alumni.

AWARDS AND PRIZES

This is to recognize and honor outstanding contributions and performances by alumni, philanthropic foundations, individuals, or groups. This may also include selected Old School Teachers for their contributions to the transmission of knowledge.

PRIZES

These are usually in the form of medals, plaques, cash, or other special gift items.

MEMBERS SUPPORT & WELFARE 

Those may include but are not limited to;

*Honouring special invitation for events or ceremonies by Alumnus. 

*Support for any indigent Alumni.

SOURCING FOR FUNDS

This is necessary to meet the aspirations of the Alumni. Raising funds is mostly done through the following means;

*Collaboration with charitable foundations and organizations of similar interest.

*Donations from philanthropist members.

*Collaboration with Political officeholders.

*Able community leaders.

*Funds from the Alumni through monthly or annual dues collections. 

Finally, the ALUMNI is beautiful if the various components are adequately attended to and members are motivated for maximum participation. The excitement is in the fulfillment of the purpose of the Alumni and the joy of friendship in the communion it offers to members. 

Thanks for reading. Again my name is

O'POLO, THEOPHILUS.
