Q/A Communicating with Alumni

Q: How do councils and Scouting alumni affinity groups use the alumni database to communicate with alumni?

A: Scouting Alumni and Friends sends regular communications to alumni, which are as follows:

Alumni Alive - Quarterly e-Magazine

Scoutingwire (Alumni Edition) - Bi-monthly e-newsletter to SAA Hikers and Pathfinders

Scoutingwire (Eagle Edition) - Bi-monthly e-newsletter to Eagle Scout Alumni


These communications are segmented based on alumni preferences and the constituency groups for which they belong. Councils and Scouting alumni affinity groups with administrator access may also use the Scouting Alumni Network to email alumni in their council (instead of using other mass email platforms such as mail chimp.)

In addition, councils may request to customize the Scoutingwire - Alumni and Eagle editions to include local stories from their local council. Scouting Alumni and Friends will send the template to your local council with space to include local stories from your council. SAF will then remove your councils alumni from the national email list with the understanding that your council has assumed responsibility for communicating with them. 

Contact Scouting Alumni and Friends to request the template.
