Palm Beach County Alumni Facebook Page

Post

Hey everyone,
Since FAU doesn't not have a Facebook alumni page for those alumni of Florida Atlantic University who live in Palm Beach County, I started one on facebook. Here is the link. Will be emailing it to the alumni association as well.

I believe that the main alumni association in Boca serves as the Palm Beach Chapter this is their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/FAUAlumni

Really?  The main association is for the Palm Beach Chapter?  Maybe that is part of the problem.  Maybe they should expand their outreach / audience.  Anyway, I just looked at the page back to July '14 and I don't see any particular Palm Beach focus.  I think the idea of multiple association pages/groups is a great idea.  There are so many things that can be done with interested and enthusiastic leadership. Keep it up, usmcowl.   Maybe we can actually get the alumni giving rate up over 3%.

Kind of seems redundant, especially if the chapter was looking for donations or services. It could get confuse the chapter with it being the main association. Other chapters not so much because of their locations. I looked on the UF alumni site they designate their chapters as clubs, and the club has a specific name. The clubs have presidents and the are grouped into regions which are overseen by Vice Presidents from the Alumni Association. They do have one in †Gainesville though, it's called Titletown Gator Club, which won't get confused with the main association.

actually alumni chapter told me to take it down because the group is not approved. so i took it down but didn't delete it. but i get it though, but its not part of any group, it is alumni of palm beach county. If it said Palm Beach County Alumni Chapter of Florida Atlantic University I would understand. But I decided not to burn the bridge since there is a chapter trying to get started for Palm Beach County which i want to be part of but Mr. Abbott, has been very talktive since I last emailed him about trying to get a conference call with him and the person that has the paper work filled out.
