Alumnae Leadership Council
Thanks for a great ALC weekend!
Nearly 200 alumnae returned to campus for ALC, some as first-time volunteers and others as multi-year veterans. Alumnae leaders chose from four tracks—Classes, Clubs & Shared Interest Groups, Reunion, and Wellesley Fund & Planned Giving—allowing volunteers to develop deep knowledge in their area. The Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) track was new this year as a way to give alumnae another way to connect with each other.
Karen E. Williamson ’69, President of the Wellesley College Alumnae Association, kicked off the weekend at the welcome lunch and announced the WCAA’s newest annual award, the Sed Ministrare Volunteer Award. Leaders then spent the afternoon learning about their roles and connecting with other alumnae and staff on strategy and best practices. In the evening, volunteers mingled with current student leaders and heard from a faculty panel.
Sunday morning kicked off with a new session, Participation Matters, highlighting how increased alumnae participation helps keep Wellesley strong. The weekend closed with a luncheon and address from President H. Kim Bottomly, and alumnae volunteers returned to their homes across the world, armed with new tools and ready to lead.
