The SGAC community is fortunate to include a huge number of distinguished alumni and the outstanding power of the SGAC community is clear in forging lasting friendships, inspiring business ideas, as well as launching future career opportunities. Alumni can serve as shining examples of the people that make up the SGAC community. Maintaining communication channels with alumni means SGAC can keep them informed of current achievements and make them part of SGAC’s future, not just its past. Good alumni relations benefit alumni as well as SGAC: by helping SGAC grow, alumni are also enhancing the value of their own SGAC experience.
