What is AROPS
AROPS is open to representatives of all school alumni societies and provides a forum for the exchange of views and the sharing of experiences in running alumni organisations.
Members represent a wide range from small prep schools to the top UK public schools.
In response to enthusiasm at previous conferences we’re making a change to the format this year with the opportunity for each delegate to attend two discussion groups during the day. There will be just one presentation in the morning – Mark Coote of the Wells Cathedral School Foundation on “Working together: alumni societies and development professionals” – and then two sessions of discussion groups allowing you to benefit from advice and opinions on a wider range of topics including data protection, living archives, career support, social media and events. For complete coverage, why not invite one or more of your members/colleagues to attend and make their choice of two topics.
As usual, the dinner will be a convivial occasion held, this year, at Prior Park College in the beautiful Bath countryside. The aim is to finish by 9.30pm allowing time for train travel home if needed.
