Bryn Mawr Alumnae Club Handbook

Chapter 4: Communication

Club Logos

The Alumnae Association has designed a new logo for clubs to use throughout the nation and the world. It can be used in newsletters, announcements of events, or any other venue for publicizing club activities.

Newsletters are good vehicles for keeping in touch, publicizing club events, providing ballots for elections, reporting on members’ activities, fundraising, soliciting volunteer help, and sharing information about the College.

Every club must send one newsletter each year to all alumnae/i in its area. Additional newsletters may be sent and may go to current club members as a benefit of membership.

Mailing labels may be ordered from the Alumnae Association (see guidelines in Chapter 2).

Telephone Tree

It takes a little time to set up a telephone tree but it is well worth the effort. Whether you want to insure good attendance at a program or just keep your members feeling included, a telephone tree can work wonders.

Divide your volunteers by class, region, alphabet or any other pattern that makes sense and assign each group to a telephone volunteer. The volunteers will call their respective members and remind them of the upcoming event. Small but important jobs like working the phone tree are an excellent way to get, or keep, members involved in the club.
