Give 'em What They Want: Engaging Your Camp Alumni

On March 22, 2011, Grinspoon Institute Mentor Julia Riseman and Technology Program Manager Kevin Martone led a discussion about alumni outreach entitled Give 'em What They Want: Engaging Your Camp Alumni. Starting with a case study about reconnecting and reengaging alumni from Jeremy Joszef, Camp Morasha's Director of Programming and Advancement, Julia and Kevin discussed how camps can find their lost alumni and what camps can provide them. This Webinar provides tips and tools for building a camp's alumni database and leveraging a camp's unique connection with their alumni.
