It is our hope to keep our BTC alumni connected to the college by providing them ongoing information about Bellingham Technical College and specific news/information about their graduating program. We hope to do this through alumni specific newsletters as well as an annual alumni event on campus when they can connect with their peers and other BTC faculty and staff. It is our hope to have an annual “Distinguished Alumni” award that is presented to a nominated BTC alumni at the annual alumni event as well. We also hope to engage alumni in our already established BTC events as well (Gala Auction, Welding Rodeo, etc…).
Creating a strong alumni presence on our BTC web page will be an important element of this alumni engagement. The web page will be a vehicle to gather alumni information as well as promoting our alumni efforts as well.
It is our hope that by providing this ongoing information and events; it will encourage our alumni base to volunteer at BTC (on advisory committees, boards, etc…) and engage them in their philanthropic support of BTC as well.
