Royal Roads' Reach is out! Community Relations and Advancement sent out the first edition of Reach, an alumni e-newsletter this week. To be distributed six times a year, it features content from the Royal Roads website including feature stories, blogs, top news items, ways to get involved with activities and programs and other interactive features.
This newsletter will complement the ways we already engage with our more than 18,500 RRU alumni and active ex-cadet community. You’re probably already familiar with our feature alumni stories and alumni blogs posted on our website and shared through our Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin social media channels. You may have also seen and read some of the inspiring alumni stories in our full page InRoads supplement features in the Times Colonist 18 times per year. We also continue to support the outreach and networking events of our Alumni Branches and will work more closely with them in the coming year on shared opportunities. We’ve been working with Student Services to connect alumni and students to career opportunities and (soon) mentoring opportunities via Symplicity. Last fall we launched our inaugural Royal Roads Alumni Awards and this year we will honour four more amazing individuals – two at each of our convocation ceremonies, linked with events from the schools and programs they’re associated with.
Thanks again to all the staff who are RRU alumni that provided feedback on this project!
