Strategic Plan

Alumni, Forever MAC
Our Mission & Strategic Goals 2016-2020

The McMaster Alumni Association strategic plan for 2016-2020 provides a map for the future of the Association, setting forth its goals, guiding its programs, and defining metrics to assess its performance over the next five years.  Building on the learnings of the 2015 alumni engagement survey, and through the leadership of the board of directors of the McMaster Alumni Association, alumni volunteers, and university staff, the plan outlines strategies that will help support the Office of Alumni Advancement operations and budgets to acheive our common objectives.
