You may wonder: what is the point of a Bryn Mawr club? Here is what clubs do:
We’ve created this handbook to help you understand your roles and responsibilities as club
officers. The handbook provides resource information to officers of BMC clubs. It includes
practical information on how to start a BMC club, how to organize and manage volunteers, and
how to plan successful events. It outlines the specific ways in which the Alumnae Association
can help your club succeed. It also includes valuable samples of by-laws, budgets, calendars,
newsletters and program events. While the handbook provides general guidelines for clubs to
follow; we invite you to tailor the information to your club's needs and style.
Every BMC club officer will receive a copy of this handbook. Additional copies may be obtained from the Alumnae Association upon request. The handbook is also available on the Alumnae Association website at brynmawr.edu/alumnae/volunteer/handbk.
On behalf of the College and the Alumnae Association, we would like to thank you for the important work that you are doing for your club—a vital link to Bryn Mawr College. The staff of the Alumnae Association and we look forward to helping support you in any way we can.
