The McMaster Alumni Association Board of Directors led a strategic planning process in 2009-2010 with an overarching goal of increasing alumni engagement. The plan, which outlines four key strategic priority areas was created through a series of consultations and planning sessions over approximately six months involving alumni, volunteers - past and present, key University partners and staff. Feedback on the plan is welcomed and should be directed to email@example.com. An annual update on progress will be posted on this site.
