I love this article because it really shows how quick and easy it is for your board to make an impact. These little activities help build connections between members and with alumni at large.

A high performing board already does many of these things. I currently chair a board where our Alumni Giving Committee sends thank you cards to a group of young first time donors each year. That may seem like a lot but over the course of a year a committee of 5 can write 200 or 300 cards which ends up being 3-5 a month per board member. We send them all the materials and it literally takes our board members about 15 minutes per month!
