BOLD Leadership Council

To increase its outreach to Bearcats of the Last Decade (BOLD) graduates, the Alumni Association launched the BOLD Leadership Council. This group of engaged alumni partners closely with staff in the Office of Alumni Engagement on programming, communications and outreach to young alumni and current students. The council's work takes place in standing committees described below.

  • Career and Mentoring Committee

    This committee works with the Office of Alumni Engagement staff to enhance and develop programs that meet the needs our alumni have for career development assistance. Committee members will:

    • Perform benchmarking activities to create and participate in a Binghamton-customized signature event.
    • Examine current LinkedIn usage and develop a plan for how Binghamton can further leverage the platform.
    • Assess Mentor Match and identify areas for growth and enhancement (i.e., are specific industries or affinities underrepresented).
  • Social and Networking Committee

    This committee works with the Office of Alumni Engagement staff to connect BOLD alumni with each other and with the University. Committee members will:

    • Create a fun and interactive in-person networking event for BOLD alumni (when safe to do so).
    • Develop a strategy to increase GreenMachine participation; this may involve leveraging LinkedIn Learning.
    • Examine current LinkedIn usage and develop a plan for how Binghamton can further increase engagement within the Alumni Association Professional Network.
    • Assist in the planning and coordination of a digital reunion for the Class of 2012.
  • Special Recognition Committee

    This committee helps the alumni office recognize outstanding young alumni from the past decade and reinforces BOLD alumni engagement with Binghamton University. Committee members will:

    • Perform benchmarking activities to gain and implement ideas for how BOLD alumni can be further spotlighted and showcased.
    • Create a spotlight article for BOLD alumni.
    • Develop criteria for volunteer recognition to inspire and highlight volunteer stories throughout the year.
    • Assess and enhance the 10 Under 10 Awards ceremony.
