I want the Alumni network to be more present on social media in order to reach out to more members and non-member about our activities. By enhancing the communication efforts of JAA we can position ourselves as a leading Alumni association in Sweden. I also want our activities to engage JIBS students before they graduate to support their professional development goals.
