2021 Volunteer Leaders Conference




TO:                      Class and Club Volunteer Leaders


FROM:               Alan Loehr, Director of Alumni Relations


RE:                      Volunteer Leadership Weekend Changes


DATE:                 September 3, 2021



The Advancement staff sat down yesterday to go over final plans for our annual Leadership Conference.  Our attendance numbers are low, and they do not merit the breadth of programming and entertainment we scheduled. 


We understand there are a variety of reasons why travel is difficult and that a trip to Culver may not be a priority. If you are on the “Yes, I’m coming” list, there is no obligation to honor your commitment to attend.


We are going to record the sessions below and offer them as a suite of resources for our volunteer leadership corps. These recordings will be done Friday afternoon, as you can see below. The programs will provide an excellent overview of multiple facets of the school and our objectives with our volunteer group (you), who help us steward, educate, and communicate with our 20,000 active constituents. 


If, despite this schedule change, you still plan to be in Culver, you are welcome to attend these sessions.  We appreciate your support and understanding of these decisions.
