The University System of Maryland Foundation hosts a variety of professional development events for advancement and alumni relations staff throughout the year to connect with our System institutions and to grow a strong culture of philanthropy throughout the USM. We offer viewings of recorded webinars, day-long seminars for staff at all levels of their careers, and leadership-level summits. We are always interested in hearing from you. Please reach out to us and let us know what topics and offerings are of interest to you.
The Vice President’s (VP) Council comprises the vice presidents of advancement from our USM institutions. The council meets three times a year to discuss fundraising progress and trends, resources to build fundraising programs, policies, and other items of interest.
The University System of Maryland Alumni Relations Council (ARC) was created to foster discussion and collaboration among leaders in alumni relations at USM’s institutions. The ARC meets four times a year to discuss trends in alumni relations, plan professional development and System-wide alumni events, and much more.
