Congratulations! You’re an Associate Agent!
Now, what are you supposed to be doing, exactly?
Call, email, text, and chat with your assignments to ask for a gift to the Alumni Fund. Follow up with those you can’t reach. (Multiple times, as needed—in 2014-15, it typically took anywhere from three to ten “touches” from an Associate Agent to bring in most Alumni Fund gifts.) Thank those who’ve given with a personal note, a call, an email, or an EphCard.
This may only take a couple of hours (total) between October 1 and March 15. That said, really great conversations with classmates (especially those you haven’t seen in a while) can extend the time commitment—but are always worth it!
