Networking Meetings have recently taken place at Rugby School, Trent College and Eton College.

At all venues, we had about twelve-fifteen delegates, representing 20 Schools/Associations. High on the Agenda was exchange of information concerning the new Data Regulations that are going to affect our organisations.

Peter Jakobek (AROPS Chair, Assistant Head: Alumni and Events, Bristol Grammar School)) and Mike Askham (Foundation Director, Wellingborough School) shared the latest information and fielded numerous questions about the implications of the changes at Rugby and Trent College respectively.

Other topics, such as the different responses from alumni and alumnae, engaging younger alumni and new ideas for events, managing association investment funds and gathering information were among other topics discussed.
