Join 4 panelists drawn from across the UW and Seattle City Schools as they share their experience and opinion on this issue of what the future of STEM learning and teaching could, and should, be inside and outside of the ivory tower.

For example, invite an influential speaker to discuss a pertinent topic, or organize a joined charitable volunteer activity for alumni to participate in. Alumni are most engaged at an event where the program is relevant to them, and where there are people in attendance whom they know.
Ensure that in your event marketing, your excellent program is clearly outlined. As a bonus, list the alumni who have already committed to be in attendance, especially high profile alumni such as past student government officers and former student leaders.
Design for Higher Attendance Pre-emptively resolve reasons why alumni would not attend. Start by making a list of potential excuses. The most common ones include: For example, give invitees plenty of advance notice, so they can schedule time to attend. Outline travel and parking options, so attendees know how to reach the venue by public transit or by car. Make the event accommodating for spouses and children. Let alumni know which other familiar classmates or old connections will be in attendance — this can be easily done through a Facebook event page or other digital event page, where interested attendees are listed.
Target Diverse Age Groups Among alumni in attendance, there will be people from a broad range of life stages, with diverse needs and interests. To create an engaging event for everyone, you will need to consider the perspective of each age group and make all groups comfortable. To do so, seat alumni according to graduation years, or plan separate events altogether for older and younger alumni.

Celebrating these unites alumni with a common sense of achievement. Every alumni has stories of how their school journey has prepared them for their life journey. Capitalizing on these stories — for example, by highlighting them through videos, print materials, or speeches — encourages a shared enthusiasm for the pursuit of happiness that every alumni is embarking on.

Have ushers ready to greet people at the door. Better yet, find out a little bit about your attendees, and introduce them to people they can talk to. Foster Easy Conversation Provide name tags as a convenient way for people to interact with one another. Design and print your nametags professionally to give a sophisticated look to your event.
