Guten Tag, Hallo, Bonjour and Hola! My name is Gretchen Dobson and I am currently serving as a Steering group member of the EAIE’s Alumni Relations Expert Community. My company, Gretchen Dobson LLC, provides global stakeholder engagement strategy and coaching to institutions, organisations and governments across five continents. I’m also an academic, an author and an active member of other professional associations such as the International Education Association of Australia and the NAFSA Association of International Educators. In 2019, Alumni Relations expanded one-day professional development training outside the annual conference; in 2020, we are contributing to EAIE publications and seeking greater collaboration with fellow Expert Communities as we know that international alumni relations are critical to the internationalisation of strategic planning. There is much to do and I am committed to advancing our agenda as an Alumni Relations Steering group member. I believe my global background provides me with a comparative perspective of alumni relations from which our Expert Community and EAIE members can benefit. Thank you in advance for your support. I wish all candidates the very best.
