Welcome To Campaign

Welcome to the IU Family

As IU alumni, we share a unique bond that connects us no matter where in the world we are. We’re all part of the IU family. Whether recent graduates, new to the area, or just new to the group, it’s so important that we welcome new members into our family—and into our communities.

Making someone feel like they belong goes a long way in continuing their involvement. These “welcome to” events can be one-on-one interactions, longer networking events, or virtual “hello” emails—whatever works best for your community, volunteers, and members.

Let's Get Started

Follow these steps for initiating your group’s “Welcome To” campaign. For more chartered communities information, please visit the Our Indiana Chartered Communities webpage or contact your IUAA liaison.

Step 1: Activation

Complete and submit the Welcome To Campaign activation form.

Step 2: Training

Once your activation is reviewed and approved, you’ll receive a training video that explains the available resources, reporting requirements, and expectations of this core campaign.

Step 3: Resources

Once you’ve viewed the training video, a member of the IUAA Alumni Communities team will provide you with access to campaign-specific resources, including:

  • Email copy for event promotion and a general “welcome to” message
  • Social media copy and images
  • Event banners
  • Postcard template
  • Copy for online calendar event descriptions

Step 4: Reporting

You should complete the Welcome To Campaign reporting form by May 15. This form allows you to report how you welcomed new alumni to your community.
