What’s the difference between alumni volunteers and Alumni Volunteer Leaders?
 
The chief differences between alumni volunteers and Alumni Volunteer Leaders are leadership, ownership, and consistency. Alumni Volunteer Leaders take an active and consistent role in building, communicating about, and leading alumni community initiatives, as set forth by the regional leadership group.

Regional Networks

The Berklee alumni community is divided into regional networks overseen by Berklee’s Alumni Affairs staff. These regional networks are led by Alumni Volunteer Leaders and a designated Berklee staff member. Alumni networks serve as regional outposts for the Berklee alumni community and provide communication, programming, events, and a general sense of solidarity that is unique to the community they represent.
 
Regional networks work with Berklee’s Office of Alumni Affairs to determine programming, events, and relevant news and updates pertinent to the regional alumni community. Led by a committee of Alumni Volunteer Leaders, these representatives provide both advice and guidance, steering the regional network’s plans and needs.
