Chapters are the main point of contact for alumni activities in different regions and countries. A chapter will, at a minimum, adhere to a basic set of terms of reference and work towards agreed goals. However, each chapter will agree priorities and the activities important to them and their community. As a result some may wish to be more formal and to adopt a constitution.
Volunteer-led alumni chapters are entirely legally and financially independent from the University, but are officially recognised as alumni chapters by the University. They can also have their own group page within the University of Bedfordshire alumni LinkedIn group.
Chapters are expected to fund and organise their own activities and events. However, there may be situations in which the University partners with a chapter on a particular activity for example; an alumni reception attended by the Vice-Chancellor, an academic workshop that features senior University academics, or a VIP fundraising dinner. In these cases, the University, in consultation with the chapter, will typically help the chapter organise, run, and pay for the activity.
