What is the role of Carleton Clubs Volunteers?

The success of the Carleton Clubs program is directly tied to the great work of Clubs volunteers. They provide ideas for and organize events that appeal to a broad range of alumni, parents, students, and friends of the College throughout the year. Depending on the event, volunteers provide or identify a venue, communicate with alumni or faculty presenters, collect RSVPs, serve as hosts during the event, and submit attendance lists and feedback after the event. The Office of Alumni Relations helps to send out email and paper invitations to events, but Clubs volunteers may also want to manage a Facebook page or Carleton email listserv for the Club as an additional way to advertise events.

Carleton Clubs are successful when they bring people together for rewarding experiences that create positive feelings for the Carleton community in your area. See below for some resources to use in planning Carleton Club events.
