An alumni chapter’s first steps
As we move further into 2010, LAU has made great progress in developing its alumni network. While LAU has convinced more alumni to join or start chapters all over the world, the work remains challenging for people who are intent on starting new groups.

New chapters can be formed only once there is enough interest in forming one in one region or city. Those who are interested need to commit to organizing a committee, holding elections and planning events, and can submit a petition to the university to form the chapter. Once the chapter is accepted, which usually would happen within two months of sending the petition, a new chapter also falls under the guidance of the Alumni Association Board, the governing body of chapters and alumni throughout the world.
Chapters like the group in Toronto serve as strong examples of how the process works. The Toronto chapter is one of the older and more successful groups in the LAU alumni community in North America.
