Connecting Alumnae

Alumnae Board

What is it?
The Alumnae Board is the governing body of the Laurel School Alumnae Association.* Guided by the enterprise goal to increase alumnae engagement, both locally and throughout the world, the Alumnae Board aims to increase opportunities to connect alumnae to each other and with the School, to promote their roles as Laurel ambassadors in the broader community, and to sustain strong leaders.

Much of the work of the Alumnae Board is done through committees and councils, which welcome non-board member volunteers. Alumnae Board members and committee and council details can be found on the Alumnae Board page.

How do I join?
If you would like to be considered for Board membership or to volunteer on a Board committee, please email alumnae@laurelschool.org

*Any woman who has attended Laurel School for at least one academic year is a member of the Association following graduation of the class in which she was a member.

Lyman Circles

What is it?
Lyman Circles are a virtual forum for Laurel alumnae to easily connect with others who share similar interests, professions, or are within the same geographic area. The purpose is to create opportunities for alumnae to build relationships, share expertise and ask for advice in an accessible way that fits into busy schedules.

Circles are run through the Google Groups platform, similar to an email listserv. [You do not need a Gmail address to join, however you do need a Google account.] Circle members can be as active or passive as they wish -- from simply reading the conversations to responding to group emails daily.

The Alumnae Office will host optional Zoom gatherings for each Circle and its members at various times throughout the year.

Update Your Information

Why update?
We contact and connect with Laurel Alumnae both digitally and in print. Your efforts to keep us informed of street and email address changes allow us to reach you without interruption. Update your information today!

Why ask about business and education?
Our ability to identify potential mentors, panel members, helpers and friends is strengthened by what you choose to share with us. Sharing your work information and education history can potentially assist alumnae and current students. How? Here are a few examples:
  • A Laurel class studying a particular subject would like to Zoom with an alumna guest speaker with real-world expertise in that area.
  • A student group traveling seeks both professional and community perspectives through visits to businesses as well as group luncheons and dinners. 
  • A Laurel student interested in a college asks to speak with alumnae who have attended that school.
  • A college student exploring internships asks to be connected with alumnae currently working in that field.
  • An alumna moving to a new city seeks trusted recommendations, advice and friendship from those living there.
Laurel’s Alumnae Office always respects your privacy. We never provide your contact information to anyone outside of the Laurel community. If you would not like your contact information shared with anyone, even within the Laurel community, please let us know at alumnae@LaurelSchool.org.
