Volunteer with us!

The 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 successful.

We are frequently asked, "So, how can I help?" Here are some options:  

Organize 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.

Organize 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.

Assist 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.

Recruit 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.

Recruit 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 relationships.

Get 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.
