Alumnae Leadership Council


Alumnae Leadership Council (ALC) is an intense training session for invited alumnae leaders. Council provides a unique opportunity for alumnae to reconnect with the College and with other alumnae in leadership roles. Delegates receive training relevant to their volunteer positions and learn about new initiatives within the Alumnae Association. Delegates are also provided with current information about Wellesley to use in their work. Invitations to ALC are emailed to volunteers in early September.
 

For those of you planning to attend ALC 2016, below are some recommendations for things to do in advance.

  1. Book your travel

    You can save your class or club money by booking flights and other travel early. Before you make plans, please review the transportation information, as well as the reimbursement policy.
  2. Club presidents: select your delegates

    Clubs may send one delegate per 100 alumnae in the club area, up to a maximum of 3 delegates per club. If you are a club president, identify your delegates as soon as possible, and forward them ALC information. Please also inform the Alumnae Association of your delegate choices so we can include them on future mailings. 
  3. Review your handbooks

    Read over the handbooks available online for your volunteer role. Come to ALC prepared with questions for your office contact!
  4. Set up your Wellesley Login

    The Wellesley Login allows you to sign into various College systems and websites, including the Wellesley Community using a single username and password.
  5. Become familiar with the Wellesley Community

    The Wellesley Community is the central hub for all the communications and data tools you need to succeed as a volunteer. Review the documentation before you come to ALC so you can get the most out of technology and communication sessions.
  6. Register for ALC

    ALC 2016 is being held the weekend of October 15 - 16. Registration will open in early September. Keep an eye on your email, and register as soon as possible!
