Our alumni chapters host more than 300 events annually across the country. Whether it's a large fundraiser or a small social gathering, they all originate here, by filling out the JMU Alumni Association Event Request Form.
Planning an event the right way means you need to be organized. Use this event timeline checklist to keep up with the logistics.
Ideas/enhancements to events
Why don't more people attend my event? How can I improve my program? We'll give you some tips to enhance your events, improve your attendance, and capture the stories for follow-up communication.
Please talk with your Alumni Association contact before committing any chapters funds to an event or program. All payments must be requested/submitted with the Payment Voucher Form. If something can be paid for ahead of time or over the phone with a credit card, it can be taken care of through our office as long as you submit the payment voucher with an invoice from the organization/company. If it has to be paid for in person, or is a small expense such as supplies for a chapter meeting, we would ask that you pay for that expense yourself and submit an ITEMIZED receipt along with the payment voucher form.
The Duke Club hosts events throughout the year as well, and some of them might work well for partnering up. Stay up-to-date with all Duke Club events.
