ABSAP Advisory Council

In 2010, members of ABSAP organized an Advisory Council with the mission to create overall awareness of the organization, establish credibility and relevance to the field of alumni relations, provide career advancement resources to members, and demonstrate influence in education advancement in general. The Council identified four areas to support this mission – 1) Membership; 2) Marketing and Communications; 3) Awards, and 4) Professional Development.  These areas are each overseen by a member of the Council with support from other ABSAP participants.
