Every year in July, members of ABSAP converge on a B-school in a city that will never be the same. Members enjoy three days of professional and social events that encourage information sharing on best practices from the various schools represented. Attendees are able to brainstorm ideas that provide a much-needed surge to go back to their respective campuses with a fresh approach to their profession.

The annual conference is a collaborative environment where exchanging ideas and sharing successes and failures (we all have them!) enable attendees to learn from others, benchmark peer schools, brainstorm ideas and grow professionally.

A business school must have paid current membership dues in order for alumni relations professionals to attend the annual conference. If your membership is not current, log in and select "Profile -> Pay Membership Dues" to update membership, or contact info@absap.org for further information.

Annual Conference Information

The 2018 conference was July 17-20, hosted by the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.  Details are available at https://michiganross.umich.edu/about/events/ABSAP-conference


Everyone did an awesome job presenting - sessions and days flew by.  I walked away with a great list of ideas to explore for our school.  From a benchmarking perspective, it's also great to hear what everyone else has done or is prioritizing for their alumni.

Really all of the sessions were excellent this year - the best I have experienced yet. The most valuable part of the conference is just connecting and discussing everything with our peers. Such similar problems and experiences, there is always something to take away from every conversation.

Thank you to all involved in planning and managing this conference! The content was very useful and the event itself was well run. It also provided such an invaluable opportunity to meet so many smart and passionate people working in this industry that I can now call colleagues and friends​.
