Workshop: Customer Journey [Donald & Teri]

Do you know the potential pain points of your members? Are you actively acting on reducing these? In this workshop each nation will create their own customer journey to find out more about their strengths and pain points.

09:20 - 12:20

Gold, Silver & Bronze Nations: From vision to your strategy [Matej, Teri]

If you do not have the vision, you do not know where are you going. If you do not have the strategy, you do not know how to get there. In this session we will guide you on your way from a long-term vision, through strategy to specific action steps, so you can point and guide your Alumni organization in the right direction.

09:20 - 12:20

Gold, Silver & Bronze Nations: Growth hacking [Donald + Coms. Team]

Growth hacking is defined as a process of rapid prototyping to identify the most efficient ways to grow. This session will focus on how this methodology can be applied to JA alumni organisations including a hands-on workshop with the outcome of creating a growth hacking campaign concept.

Applying & Chosen Nations: Starter Kit Roadmap and individual sessions [Emilie, Mikkel, Love, Sarah]

This session will focus on how to establish an alumni network. First, we will present you the new created Starterkit Roadmap and afterwards we will go into individual sessions. Goal of the session is that every country gets a clear overview on how to establish the network in their country with all aspects.

Gold & Silver Nations: Volunteering & Events Quality [Donald & Love]

Events and volunteering are core offerings of all JA alumni organisations, this is why we need to ensure sustainability in terms of event quality. This session will be about getting your input to create a practical JA Alumni Europe event playbook ensuring a governed event organization across nations and time.

13:20 - 14:20

Bronze & Applying Nations: JA Relations [Sarah + Mikkel]

A good collaboration between the JA Organisations and the Alumni networks is a crucial part of a successful network. Alumni are the 'product' of each JA National Organisation which means that all JA Organisations are the mother organisations of the National Alumni Groups. Within this session we will look at best practises and easy steps which you can implement in your collaboration.

14:20 - 14:35


14:35 - 15:35

Gold & Silver Nations: Senior Alumni [Teri & Sarah]

JA Alumni Europe and it's member networks are constantly growing and so do the members. How can we make sure to be attractive for different age groups? Who are the 'seniors'? What can we offer? These are questions we want to clarify within the session and give you easy steps to implement in your networks.

14:35 - 15:35

Bronze & Applying Nations: Board Transition [Matej]

Sustainability is the key. There have been several examples in the network, where a sudden change of national board meant that the network (almost) died. Typically, when you see that you have a problem with sustainability, it is too late. Start now and make sure that the hard work you are doing for alumni will make a longterm impact!
