The JA Staff Alumni Network is committed to finding various ways for all members to engage in our work. Many wise people have told us that we can only do a few things well. This year we are focusing on just four key initiatives:
- Support JA USA.
o Staff Development and Recognition
o Karl Flemke Award
o Jim Sweeny Entrepreneurial Excellence Award
o NLC Scholarships
o Professional Staff Hall of Fame
- Keep the history of JA alive and easily accessible.
o Increase the number of oral histories available through the Junior Achievement archives.
o Identify individuals who should be interviewed for the archives.
o Work with JA USA to determine how the JA Museum can be accessed by more people.
o Add historical information to the JASAN website.
- Use each of our electronic platforms to enhance membership connections and measure the impact by
o Ensuring the Website stays up to date, with information seen as valuable to members.
o Using Facebook for everyday connections among our members, including “meet-ups”.
o Using LinkedIn to help members find professional and volunteer opportunities.
o Using our periodic newsletters to provide information about JASAN, JAUSA, and our members.
- Ensure sufficient funding to carry out the work of the organization.
o Raise funds from members and other appropriate sources to fund the work of the organization.
