Bickel, Kathy
CURRENTS, v35 n8 p46-49 Oct 2009
Conferences and colleagues can provide some guidance to those who are searching for new ways to understand their alumni and those who are looking for insights into fundraising, ideas for coping with change, or new approaches to their career in advancement. However, the author suggests that sometimes it's best to turn to that age-old source of truth and wisdom--television. One might be surprised at the lessons he/she can learn from reality television and game shows. That big-toothed TV host with the well-coiffed hair might help one gain some perspective on his/her alumni relations program. In this article, the author describes games and reality television shows that can teach alumni professionals.
