Connect & Grow Directory Initiative
DSC_0958-Cropped-BWTo foster better communication and relationsip building, an initiative was launched to establish a alumni directory. There are multitude of options available and volunteers are needed to identify the best solution which is secure and easy to use for all our alumni.

Special help is needed from our fellow alumni to provide technical direction, implementation help and become champions for their batch, branch or geography.

It does not take too much time and will help build a high value resource for all our alumni.
