Volunteer with us!
MIT Sloan Boston Alumni Association is driven by a team of enthusiastic
volunteers. Our events and activities, both small and large, are conceived of
and organized by our alumni community. We depend on YOU to make the Association
are frequently asked, "So, how can I help?" Here are some options:
a “back to the classroom” or other continuous learning events: To do this, select a
topic and present your proposal to a Board Member, who will present it at the next
Board Meeting. Once it is approved, you will work with Tina Kruczynski, Program
Coordinator on logistics and generally act as overall event chair.
a social event (including sporting, cultural, family-oriented): Present your proposal
to the Board for approval. This is typically brought to a single member, who
will present it at the next Board Meeting. Once it is approved, you will work
with Tina Kruczynski, Program Coordinator on logistics and generally act as
overall event chair.
with club and event marketing: Become an evangelist for our club and
help us build our name and market recognition. Help write our newsletter or
develop content for our website. We need bloggers and photographers to come to
our events and help us tell our story.
and manage club sponsors: Ideally, a sponsorship provides a benefit to both
organizations by defraying some of the costs of our events or by providing our
members with valuable discounts or other benefits, while providing market
recognition to our sponsors. Market recognition may be in the form of offering
our sponsor’s executives with speaking opportunities at our small or large
events or the relationship may help to generate new business for the sponsor
organization. In this role, you will be in regular contact with our sponsor
companies and will make sure that the relationship continues to provide value
to both organizations.
and manage club partners: Partners are similar to sponsors, but they are typically
not-for-profit organizations. Partner organizations help us by marketing our
events to their members and providing events that may be of interest to our
members. Partner organizations may co-organize an event with us or may provide
speakers for our events. Volunteers in this role often are members of both
organizations or are simply interested in helping to nurture these
involved with our two large events: Are you interested in Finance or IT?
Want to work with executives and thought leaders in these areas? If so, help to
organize the MIT Sloan CFO Summit in the fall or the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium
in the spring. Organizers of large events typically start work about 9 months
prior to the event, and need help recruiting event speakers and sponsors,
developing and executing marketing plans, providing content for our event
websites, and assisting with event logistics.. For more information about these
conferences, go to their websites at www.mitcfo.com or www.mitcio.com.
