Fellow Alabama grads need your help:

A message from Chapter President Marc Brafman

Every week, the Roll Tide Chicago web site gets e-mails from our fellow alumni living in the Chicagoland area looking for job leads and asking us to post their resume. The chapter wants to help as much as possible, but we don’t currently have the time or the resources to do much other than offer encouragement. I want to change that.

We’d like to build our alumni club into a group that does more than just watch football games. That is where you come in. The board is looking for one or two people to take this on this “job networking” challenge. The board has some ideas to get you started, and I have spoken to the University and their Career Center has pledged their support in any way they can.

We need a volunteer to lead the charge on this project! Most Bama chapters around the country don’t offer this service, so we will blazing a trail nationally in this regard. If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail us at www.rolltidechicago.com and we will start the process.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing everyone for the Va-Tech game at 7:00 pm at the Tooth.

As part of recruitment efforts in the Chicago area, a “send-off” party will be held this summer for local students who have been accepted to UA in the fall. This will be a casual afternoon event (perhaps an ice cream social), and we’re looking for someone who lives in the northwest suburbs who would be willing to open their home to these students and their families. The send-off party allows the students to meet one another, establish relationships with students from their region, and have a support system in place before the semester even begins. And having the party hosted by a chapter member makes the event more personal and shows the loyalty that alums have to Alabama. Please contact the UA recruiting officer for the Chicago area, Bethany Forrest, if you are willing to volunteer your time and your home for this event: bethany.forrest@ua.edu. Expenses such as beverages and food will be covered by the University. Specific dates will be worked out once a volunteer has been found.

Student recruitment – Bethany Forrest is the University’s Chicago-area student recruiter, working to attract the Midwest’s finest students to Alabama. She’s looking for support in two ways:

(1) Assist her at college fairs at local (mostly suburban) high schools. The next one is April 18 in Naperville.

(2) Bethany is looking to host a reception for prospective students. If you belong to a country club, and would be willing to find out if a conference or small banquet room would be available for an event like this, she’d love your help. Please contact Bethany at bethany.forrest@ua.edu to help out with student recruitment.

Email info@rolltidechicago.com to volunteer.
