As we gear up for the 2024 Annual Alumni Meeting, we are excited to invite you to be a part of a dedicated team that will help make this gathering truly special. The annual meeting has been a cherished tradition, and with your participation, we can ensure it continues to be a beacon of inspiration and connection for BGU alumni worldwide.
Over the years, our annual meetings have provided a platform for alumni to come together, share experiences, and learn from one another. We have had the privilege of hosting distinguished speakers and engaging in thought-provoking discussions.
Panels in previous meetings have featured a diverse array of voices:
Global Panel: We've heard from esteemed individuals like Dr. Ana Paula Bogni from Brazil, Dr. Krisztina Olah from Hungary, Dr. Joy Wilson from Guyana, and Dr. Bill Tenny-Brittian from the US. Their insights into global issues and the role of faith and leadership have left a lasting impact on our community.
BGU Regents Panel: Our own BGU Regents, including Pieter Brinksma, Gea Gort, Willy Kotiuga, and Dotun Reju, have graced our meetings to provide a unique perspective on the university's vision and growth.
BGU Directors Panel: We've had the privilege of hearing from our dedicated directors, such as Bruce Jackson, Linda Jackson, Nita Kotiuga, and Yvonne McKenzie, who have shared their insights into the direction of BGU and the impact of our education on the world.
Themes of our previous annual meetings have sparked deep reflection and conversation:
"Jesus: The Superglue In a Fractured World": This theme encouraged us to explore how our faith and education can be a unifying force in a divided world.
"Learning Beyond the Degree": We delved into the idea that our education at BGU goes beyond the classroom, enriching our lives and communities in profound ways.
To make the 2024 Annual Alumni Meeting a resounding success, we need a dedicated team of alumni to step forward. We're looking for volunteers to take on various roles in organizing the event, including:
An event lead to coordinate the team's activities.
Scheduling the Event: Coordinating dates, times, and locations to ensure the event runs smoothly and is accessible to as many alumni as possible.
Developing the Theme: Crafting a compelling and relevant theme that will guide our discussions and inspire meaningful conversations.
Promoting the Event: Reaching out to alumni networks, leveraging social media, and using various channels to spread the word about the meeting.
Developing the Agenda: Designing a dynamic agenda that includes panels, workshops, and networking opportunities, ensuring a rich and engaging experience for all attendees.
We believe that the strength of our BGU community lies in the active involvement of our alumni. By joining this team, you'll not only contribute to the success of the 2024 Annual Alumni Meeting but also have the opportunity to connect with fellow alumni and deepen your sense of belonging to the BGU family.
