Leadership Development
Alumni Senate Attendee, April 2000: Todd Stroup, Club President

Tentative 2001 Alumni Senate Attendee: Julie Brachowski, Club Secretary

The strength and vitality of a club depends greatly upon the number of members involved.
Please describe what your club has done to develop a broad base of leaders.
Our club encourages all members to plan events. When a member plans an event, we
give them a title and place them on our organization chart. For more information on this,
view “Give Titles to Recognize Contributions” in the “Best Practices” section of this
document.

Our club also has begun to conduct succession-planning activities. Each year, we
identify potential club leaders from among the ranks of our committee heads. We
conduct ongoing discussions with these people to investigate their interest in filling a role
as a club officer.

Our elections for club president are held one year ahead of when that person will take
office. This means that, for an entire year, we have both a president and a president-elect.
This one-year overlap allows the two people to work together. It allows a smooth
transition.

Best Practices
Use the Irish Online ListServ for the Club E-Mail Newsletter
One key to our club’s growth has been the use of the ListServ for e-mails. The Irish
Online Site provides this service.

Our club uses this service to send out an e-mail newsletter. We currently reach over 500
subscribers in the Atlanta area. Our club sent out 42 e-mail newsletters in the last
year. That’s an average of 3.5 e-mail messages per month.

This outstanding service is provided free of charge from the Alumni Association. It
provides a low-cost channel of communications. The frequency of the messages lets our
members know that we are an active club.

To sign up, go to https://alumni.nd.edu/listserv/ndatlanta.html. You can also view the
archives of our e-mails going back to 1998.

Build Relationships with the ACE House
The diocese of Atlanta is fortunate to have volunteer teachers from the Alliance for
Catholic Education (ACE). Our club has made concerted efforts to build relationships
with the teachers that live in the local house.

We established a formal committee position for an “ACE Liaison.” Our club helped to
furnish their house. Many alumni will go out of their way to make sure that the ACE
teachers attend key club events.


New Adopt-a-Parish Program
Through our relationships with the ACE teachers, we launched a new program. The ACE
teachers work at Catholic schools in the inner city. These schools are in great need of
assistance. Some of the ACE teachers in Atlanta work at St. Anthony’s.

Through the “Adopt-a-Parish” program, our club has “adopted” St. Anthony’s parish.
The ACE teachers suggested this school as the focus for our new program. We have
performed service work for the parish school and worked to provide donated computers.
We are currently in discussions with the parish school to create a scholarship for students
that are unable to pay for their schooling.

This exciting program will be a key pillar of our service work in the coming years.


New Club Organization Structure
Our club conducted a major reorganization this year. The new organization is flatter and
has met with increased satisfaction from club members.


8/27/12 11:52 PM                                                                   22 of 52
Notre Dame Club of Atlanta            Club Size: A                            Region #: 15



Each of the four club officers is the primary contact for specific committee heads. This
eased our efforts to plan multiple events and smooth communication channels.

See Appendix A for a recent copy of the club’s org chart.


Communication and Coordination, Not Command and Control
We are an organization of volunteers. During our club’s reorganization, our mantra was
“Communication and Coordination, Not Command and Control.” This means that our
focus was on ease of communication.

We did want people to feel like they “reported” to anyone. Rather, the club officers see
their roles as coordinating the efforts of our active club in the easiest way possible.


Give Titles to Recognize Contributions
We have built a large base of active members. This core has strengthened in the past
year.

When a club member approaches us with an idea for an event, we encourage them to plan
it. When the event is planned, we give that person a title of “<fill in the blank>
Coordinator.”

People should feel like they are an important part of the organization. Without this core
of active members, our club would not be as strong as it is.

Giving a title only acknowledges a simple truth: active individuals are vital to the
club.

Again, see the organization chart in Appendix A for a list of our club’s active members.


An Event = Personal Commitment + Date
Our club had over 75 events in the last year. That is an average of 6.25 events per
month.

Our strategy for organizing events revolves around a simple formula. A club event exists
when two key elements are in place:
    One person makes a commitment to own and execute the event.
    That person picks a date for the event.

Another way of stating it is that “an event = a personal commitment + a date.”

Using this simple formula, the executive committee has encouraged all club members to
be creative. Frequently, a club member will approach a club officer with an idea for an


8/27/12 11:52 PM                                                                   23 of 52
Notre Dame Club of Atlanta             Club Size: A                              Region #: 15


event. If that member is willing to personally commit to the event and pick a date, we
have an event.

This strategy has allowed us to harness the collective energy of the club and execute over
75 events in the past year.


Club Web Site: Not Flashy, Just Up-To-Date
The Notre Dame Alumni Association hosts our club web site. It is not a flashy,
glamorous web site. Our web site does not play the Fight Song. No leprechauns dance.
There is no interactive multi-media display of the webmaster’s prowess.

Instead, we have focused on something more important. Our web site has current
information. It is up-to-date.

We asked our club members what they wanted. They wanted a site where they could get
current information without a lot of work.

Many alumni that move to the Atlanta area find the club via our web site. If the club’s
web site still has information from six months ago, they will get the message that the club
is not active. With our site, they see that we are active. We have a full calendar of
events, and contacting the club is easy.

We even provide a link to the sign-up page for the club’s listserv newsletter.

URL: http://alumni.nd.edu/~ndc_atl/

Include Notre Dame Campus News in the Club Newsletter
Our club newsletter contains more than club information. At the end of each newsletter,
we include news stories about Notre Dame. Our club members enjoy this feature, as it
provides an easy method to find out what’s going on at Notre Dame.

The University of Notre Dame public relations department has proven to be an
outstanding source of news.

By including campus news in our newsletter, we increase the likelihood that club
members will read the entire newsletter.


Combine Varied Interests to Draw Bigger Crowds
Many of our events have been successful because they appeal to varied interests. Service
work is a cornerstone for our club. We try to “cross-pollinate” service events that will
appeal to other interests as well. Here are a few examples:
    The Adopt-a-Parish Program appeals to club members looking for Catholic
        activities as well as those looking for service work.



8/27/12 11:52 PM                                                                     24 of 52
Notre Dame Club of Atlanta             Club Size: A                            Region #: 15


      The Tax Assistance Program (ND TAP) appeals to club members with financial
       and accounting backgrounds that are looking to leverage their skills in service to
       the community.
      Our weekly Football Game Watches draw large crowds. We drew from this
       strength for a service activity: a canned food drive at the Game Watch. The
       amount of food collected was overwhelming. All we did was combine people’s
       desire to serve with their love of Notre Dame football.


Club “Tailgater”
Our club started a tradition a while back. Each year, we hold a “tailgater” in Atlanta.

There is a beautiful park near the site of our Game Watches. We gather at the park for a
traditional tailgate party. It is complete with flaming-hot grills, baked goods, beverages,
bratwursts, and burgers. We even have a CD player for the music of Notre Dame. The
event is very popular with our club members. It always draws a large crowd.

After the tailgater, we all head over the Game Watch.

We highly recommend this event for other clubs. It is the next-best thing to being
on campus.


New Club Job Search Service
Notre Dame alumni often contact the club officers and committee members during their
job searches. This has included Alumni relocating from other cities, the predictable
Spring-rush of graduates that want to live in Atlanta, as well as current club members
looking for greener pastures.

Our club has proven to be a great source of leads for jobs, and many Alumni have found
new jobs through the club's network. However, in the past, this has only been handled on
an individual level, with varying degrees of success.

To meet the needs of our club members, we organized a club service to assist in the
job seeking process. To do this, we leveraged the strength of our e-mail newsletter.

At the end of each club e-mail newsletter, there is a section for club job seekers. Each
job seeker will be listed with the following information:
     Name
     E-mail address
     Up to 100 words to describe themselves, their careers, or their interests however
        they want.

If anyone reads the e-mail and is interested in the job seeker, they will contact the job
seeker directly. The club does not handle, store, or forward resumes. We are offering
this service to help put people in touch with each other.

Notre Dame Club of Atlanta             Club Size: A                            Region #: 15



Job seekers are listed for 2 months unless they ask to be removed sooner. If someone
wants their listing to run longer, they must re-submit their information at the end of the 2
months.

This service has proven extremely successful. For a sample message from the new
service, see the listings in Appendix D: Sample E-mail from New Job Search Service.


Monthly Executive Conference Calls
The four club officers communicate regularly via a monthly conference call. Prior to the
call, each officer checks with his or her assigned committee members for news or event
information.

This monthly call has proven to be an effective communication channel.


Monthly Young Alumni Happy Hours For Over Three Years
The Young Alumni provide much of the strength for our club. For over three years, the
young alumni have conducted a monthly happy hour. Again, simplicity is a key. The
event is always held on the first Monday of each month. It is always in the same place,
and it begins at 7:00 PM.

Atlanta has a young population. Young alumni move here each year from all over the
country. The consistency of this monthly happy hour has provided an easy way for
young alumni to meet each other.


Football Trivia Contest as a Club Fundraiser
Our club holds a Game Watch for each Notre Dame football game. One of our club
members prepares a trivia sheet for each game. He combines trivia about Notre Dame’s
current team, questions about the opposing team, and the history of the rivalry between
the two teams.

The contest cost two dollars to enter. The winner receives half of the total money
collected. The other half of the money goes to the club.

This weekly contests gives our Game Watches a more organized feel. It shows our
members that the Game Watch is more than just a place to view football. It promotes
interaction and friendly rivalry. It has also served as an outstanding fundraiser.

For a sample of the club’s trivia, see “Appendix B: Sample Trivia Questions from
Game Watches.”

Notre Dame Club of Atlanta            Club Size: A                           Region #: 15



Feedback
Our club is always looking for new ideas. We want to hear the success stories of other
clubs. We also feel that we have some successes to share.

We would be well served if the Alumni Association could provide a regular
communication channel for clubs to exchange ideas. A monthly e-mail or a moderated
on-line forum would be useful.

We are not just looking for big successes or important stories. Rather, we are looking for
simple ideas like the aforementioned “club tailgater” or the “adopt-a-parish” program.

- EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION SEMINAR

Reminders on other club events:
- QUARTERLY OPEN CLUB MEETING
- HANDS ON ATLANTA DAY NEEDS YOU!
- PEACH STATE GOLF OUTING
- GLEE CLUB CONCERT NEWS


EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION SEMINAR
The Notre Dame Club of Atlanta is seeking nominations of candidates from the metro
Atlanta area to send to the Excellence in Education seminar in South Bend November
17-19 which is sponsored by ND Alumni Continuing Education. The program is open to
all teachers, principals or counselors from kindergarten through high school. A
participant does not need to be a Notre Dame graduate to attend this conference and it
is open to educators from public, Catholic and private schools. It is hoped that the
selected teacher will become an ambassador between Notre Dame and their school.

Please send your nominations to Rose Carroll '82 cootehill@earthlink.net or
call her at 678-817-1604. Include the name of your nominee, the name of the
school at which they are currently employed, and a contact phone number for
yourself and your nominee. Deadline for submissions is October 5, 2000. The nominee
will then be asked to submit a résumé and the club board members will make a selection
from the résumés submitted.

The club will cover the registration fee and two nights of lodging. Last year
we were able to provide air travel for two attendees through donations of skymiles
by club members. The donation of skymiles for one round trip domestic ticket
must come from one account and cannot be pooled from numerous
accounts. Also club members may designate their university donations to our local
efforts much in the same way they can designate their donation for sponsoring the Atlanta
area summer service project student. There is a separate form which must be filled
out. If you are interested in donating skymiles or cash funding to Excellence in
Education again please contact Rose Carroll (email and phone number are above).


QUARTERLY OPEN CLUB MEETING
Mark your calendars now. Our club will hold the next quarterly open meeting on

Wednesday, Oct. 11. The meeting will take place at John Harvard's Brew Pub on
Peachtree Road in Buckhead and will begin at 7:00pm. We will present a summary
of the club's events for the previous and upcoming quarter as well as to discuss
any ideas that club members may have. Even with all that we have to talk about,
we are going to keep the business part of meeting brief to allow plenty of time
to socialize. Please try to make it!


HANDS ON ATLANTA DAY NEEDS YOU!
WHAT: 10th Annual Hands On Atlanta Day
WHEN: October 7, 1999, 9am - 1pm
WHERE: Many locations around Atlanta
WHO: 14,000 volunteers
SIGN-UP DEADLINE: Friday, September 15 (see below)
WHAT IS HANDS ON ATLANTA DAY?
Hands On Atlanta Day, the nation's largest Serve-A-Thon, will bring together
more than 14,000 volunteers to make Atlanta a better place for us all. On this
single day, volunteers from throughout the city will complete more than 200
service projects -- from beautifying our local parks to painting and renovating
our schools to preparing meals for the homeless.
This year, projects will take place from 9am - 1pm. We organized an ND Alumni
team last year, and we had a great time sprucing up West Fulton Middle School.
HOW DO YOU SIGN UP?
Visit the Hands on Atlanta Day website at http://www.handsonatlanta.org/day/.
Here, you will find all the information you need, and you can even register
online! Be sure to sign up with the UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME ALUMNI CLUB
team.
Non-Domers are welcome, so spread the word!
If you are unable to access the web, or you have any problems registering,
please send me (Diane Regitz) a note at dcregitz@hewitt.com or give me a call at
(770) 690-7335. I will add you to the team.
WHAT ABOUT THE STANFORD GAME?
The Stanford game starts at 2:30 ET. You should have plenty of time to
volunteer, and still make it to the Wing Factory to watch the game!
IS THERE A DEADLINE?
Please sign up by Friday, September 15 at 5pm. We can't pick a "team project"
until we have people signed up for the team. So... the more people we have
signed up by the 15th, the better our project will be. If you miss the
deadline, please give me a call... I will still add you to the team!


PEACH STATE GOLF OUTING
The Committee for the Peachstate Scholarship Golf Outing on 10/10/00 is
proposing a challenge to all the Notre Dame Club of Atlanta members. To the
individual who can sell the most Sponsorships or team registrations we will
award 2 Tickets (between the 45 yd. lines on the ND side) to the Air Force



8/27/12 11:52 PM                                                              36 of 52

or the Boston College game. Local contact is Tom McNulty ND'57
(770-592-6602) or irish57@mindspring.com

The committee has come up with another idea for some fund raising for the scholarship
fund
especially for the young alum's. If any young alum or any club member can
not participate as a player in this years golf outing, then possibly they
may like to come out to the event for the afternoon and evening to socialize
and do some networking with other ND people. We suggest that for a donation
of $25.00 to $35.00 that they come join us after the golf for drinks and
dinner and the raffle.

This is the 4th annual event benefiting the students from Georgia and their
scholarship programs. It is scheduled for Tuesday 10/10/00 at the Atlanta
National Golf Club in Alpharetta, Ga.
The Committee for this event feels that in order to be more successful we
must create a long overdue partnership with the Atlanta Club member families
and friends of Notre Dame. We feel it is imperative to make an appeal to every ND Club
member family in the Atlanta area to join us in our efforts to make this project a success.
What we need
is to "Talk It Up" and sign up as many sponsors at ($1,000.00 each) and
players at ($350.00 each) as we possibly can get to help us. If you can not
participate at this level, we ask you to make some concentrated effort in
our behalf. We need door prizes...ask a fried who owns a business what they
may have to donate to our event as a prize, ask the proprietor of your
favorite restaurant for a gift certificate , ask the pro at your golf course
if he would be willing to donate a foursome to the cause. We ask that you
at least consider making a contribution to this event for the scholarship
programs in Georgia. We thank you in advance for your help. If you have
any questions please contact me at 770-592-6602 or irish57@mindspring. com

We are doing fairly well on housing the young men, but we still need a number of

NOTRE DAME PRE-MED STUDENTS VISITING ATLANTA
My name is Mrunalee Patil and I am a senior at Notre Dame. I am pre-med and I will be
in Atlanta for a medical conference during Easter weekend. I was wondering if there
were any physicians in the area from ND who would be able to talk to our group over
lunch or at some other time. There will probably be about 6 or 7 of us from the Pre-Med
Society of Notre Dame. I am from Atlanta so I know about the hospitals and I will have
transportation. We will probably have our Dean of Arts and Letters for pre-professional
studies come with us. If you are interested, please contact Mrunalee Patil at
mpatil@nd.edu.

NOTRE DAME ON PRIME TIME TV
Check out The West Wing on NBC this Wednesday, where the
President is neither a Harvard or Yale man. He's a Domer (this is, after
all, an NBC show).

On this week's show (Wed. November 15th) the President points out that Air
Force 1 is flying over "hallowed ground", the campus. He then has some
discussion as to why he did not attend Harvard which includes some great
comments on the quality of ND , followed by the plane guests all singing
the ND Victory March.

 Dame-Boston College football game Saturday (Nov. 11).

 Blatz was graduated summa cum laude from Notre Dame in 1976 and went
 on to earn both her master of social work degree and her law degree
 from the University of Minnesota. While a first-year law student, she
 was elected to the Minnesota state legislature and served 15 years,
 chairing the house crime and family law committee.

 Blatz was appointed in 1997 as the first female chief justice of the
 Minnesota State Supreme Court. She has a special interest in
 children's issues and is recognized as a leader in placing child and
 family welfare issues at the forefront of the state's agenda.

 Rev. John J. Cavanaugh, C.S.C., was Notre Dame's 14th president. A
 native of Owosso, Mich., he was graduated from Notre Dame in 1923 and
 received his master's degree in English from the University four years
 later. He entered the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1926, was ordained
 a priest in 1931 and studied philosophy and theology for two years in
 Rome before returning to Notre Dame to serve as prefect of religion.
 He was president of the University from 1948-52 and died at Notre Dame

"After Breast Cancer"
A 2001 pictorial calendar, titled "After Breast Cancer," features the
inspirational triumphs of 15 breast cancer survivors who share their stories
for the benefit of all
women who face similar challenges in their fight against the disease. On
Oct. 2, at the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a group of breast
cancer survivors unveiled the calendar in 211 cities across the U.S. The
official release site was at the "Cancer Awareness Tree"
on the ND campus, where women’s basketball Coach Muffet McGraw joined a
group of survivors for the calendar launch. Muffet’s mother is a breast
cancer survivor. The story of this calendar has a simple beginning and, its
sponsors hope, a profound ending. The idea came from a physician whose wife
is a breast cancer survivor. He realized that showing breast cancer
survivors living
active lives after diagnosis and treatment would be a source of hope for
those just learning they have breast cancer. Others agreed, and all the
publishing and admin-istrative
costs of the calendar have been underwritten. The entire proceeds from the
sales of the calendars at $15 each will be used for research and education.
To order a calendar, call 1-888-258-6347 or visit www.afterbreastcancer.org.

Professor Slabey dies
  Robert M. Slabey, professor emeritus of English at the University of
  Notre Dame, died Tuesday (Oct. 31) of lung cancer at Memorial Hospital
  in South Bend. He was 69 years old. Slabey, a native of Hamden, Conn.,
was graduated from
  Fairfield University in 1953 and earned masters and doctoral degrees in
English
  from Notre Dame in 1955 and 1961, respectively. His doctoral
  dissertation--on the work of William Faulkner--was directed by Notre
  Dame poet Ernest Sandeen. A scholar of American literature, he taught
  at Pennsylvania State University and Villanova before joining the
  Notre Dame faculty in 1964. At Notre Dame he taught popular
  undergraduate and graduate courses on Faulkner and the Southern
  literary tradition.During the 1980s, Slabey became particularly
interested in the Vietnam
  War and began to teach and write about the literature and films
  emerging from the conflict. He visited Vietnam during the 1988-89
  academic year as a member of the U.S.-Indochina Reconciliation
  Project. Writing in Notre Dame Magazine about his visit, Slabey
  described the books and films he used in his Vietnam courses as "the
  work of veterans who, like the Ancient Mariner, felt a need to tell



8/27/12 11:52 PM                                                                  45 of 52
Notre Dame Club of Atlanta            Club Size: A                          Region #: 15


   their stories." Hearing these stories, he wrote, "ignited an interest
   in seeing Vietnam for myself--the land, the people, the culture. I
   wanted to experience the reality that lies behind the American
   perception of the place...I found a landscape haunted with memories of
   America's longest and strangest war." In 1993 Slabey organized an
international conference at
   Notre Dame which brought together historians, writers, artists,
filmmakers,
   journalists, psychiatrists, government officials, anti-war activists,
   and veterans from the United States and Vietnam. In 1996, papers
   presented at the Notre Dame conference were published in a widely
   acclaimed book entitled "The United States and Vietnam from War to
   Peace."


Community service
 Catholic schools are doing the best job of
 encouraging community involvement and volunteerism, according to the
 research findings of David Sikkink, assistant professor of sociology
 and a fellow in Notre Dame's Program on the Social Organization of
 Schools. Sikkink used a U.S. Department of Education statistical
 database to pinpoint the relative commitments to community and
 involvement and volunteerism among religious, private and public
 schools. Establishing Catholic schools as the most involved, the study
 found that students from public "magnet" or theme schools also show a
 proportionately higher degree of community involvement than other
 schools. Private secular schools and mainstream public schools show
 less community and political involvement. Among non-Catholic Christian
 schools, life appears to revolve more around the church; these
 students and their schools are less involved in political and
 community life, according to Sikkink. "This doesn't happen for
 Catholic families who are more active in their schools," Sikkink said.
 "It seems that the connections between the Catholic school and the
 community, or at least outreach to the community, are greater."

Our new Job Search Service is off to a great start. Read on if you are interested in the
following sections:
- ND CLUB JOB SEARCH SERVICE
- JOB SEEKERS
- JOB OPENINGS

ND CLUB JOB SEARCH SERVICE
Notre Dame alumni often contact the club officers and committee members during their
job searches. This has included Alumni relocating from other cities, the predictable
Spring-rush of graduates that want to live in Atlanta, as well as current club members
looking for greener pastures.

Our club has proven to be a great source of leads for jobs, and many Alumni have found
new jobs through the club's network. However, in the past, this has only been handled on
an individual level, with varying degrees of success. We are now organizing a club
service to assist in the job seeking process.

Listing Information
At the end of each club e-mail that is sent out, there will now be a section for club job
seekers. Each job seeker will be listed with the following information:
- Name
- E-mail address
- Up to 100 words to describe themselves, their careers, or their interests however they
want.

How It Works
- If anyone reads the e-mail and is interested in the job seeker, they will contact the job
seeker DIRECTLY.
- The club will NOT be handling, storing, or forwarding resumes. We are offering this
service to help put people in touch with each other.
- Job seekers will be listed for 2 months unless they ask to be removed sooner.
- If someone wants their listing to run longer, they must re-submit their information at the
end of the 2 months.

Do You Know of Any Job Openings?
If you have any openings in your organization, we will list them in this section. Again,
include your name, e-mail address, and a job description (100 words max). Type "JOB
OPENING" at the top to make it obvious that this is an opening, and that you are not
looking for a job.

To list yourself in this service, forward your information to our service:
atl_nd_jobs@hotmail.com.

If the list of job seekers gets too long, we will break these out into a separate e-mail with
a heading of "ND Club Job Seekers and Openings." We are also considering other
technology offerings for the future, such as a web listing or online resume service.
