We love our Seminole Club leaders!

Last weekend the FSU Alumni Association hosted the 2014 Seminole Club Leadership Conference. We would like to thank everyone who traveled to Tallahassee this past weekend and participated in the conference.

From financials to insurance to social media tips, the weekend was jam packed with important Seminole Club information. If you weren’t able to attend the conference, we got you covered! You can view the entire presentation, social media handouts and the 2014-2015 Seminole Club Manual. You can also check out the Leadership Conference photo album.

On that note, we want you all to know how much we appreciate the dedication you put in and the hard work that you do for our university.

Looking forward to next year’s Leadership Conference!

-Your Seminole Club Staff

FSU’s Great Give

Seminole Club leaders have a unique relationship with supporters of FSU in their communities. You play a vital role in helping us spread the word about our beloved university and the many ways we continue to enrich the lives of the Seminole family.

Another excellent opportunity to help support the university’s academic programs and scholarships is through FSU’s Great Give.

FSU’s Great Give is a 36-hour online giving campaign that begins at 9 a.m. EDT on Thursday, April 17 and ends at 9 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 18.

We hope that you will give during this campaign and we ask that you encourage others to give as well. “It’s important to communicate to the FSU community that any size gift, whether $100 or $1,000, will have an impact on the success of the University,” said Marjorie Mahan, Assistant Director of Annual Giving at the Florida State University Foundation.

The FSU Foundation has also asked that our Seminole Club leaders help promote the Great Give by “liking” their Facebook page and following them on Twitter.

You will be receiving more information from the FSU Alumni Association with specific instructions on how your organization is going to participate in the Great Give.

In the meantime, visit the Great Give website to learn more.

A week away!

We hope you all are as excited as we are to kick off Leadership Weekend 2014! The festivities begin a week from tomorrow, and we are counting down the days.

We wanted to send some last minute reminders regarding the weekend. First, registration comes down this Friday at 5pm, so please ensure your club leaders have registered. Second, if your treasurer or other board member plans to call in during the financial presentation please make sure they email me (sfulford@fsu.edu) with their name and email address. I will send that info out the beginning of next week. Lastly, our Friday conference agenda is now posted on alumni.fsu.edu/Leadership2014!

We are sad for those that will be missing out, but very excited to see everyone else back in Tally! Go Noles!

We want to see which Seminole Club has the most spirited FSU fans!

We encourage you and your club members to submit photos on our Twitter or Facebook page. We will select a photo at the beginning of the month to be displayed as our Seminole Club Fan of the Month! We hope that you will encourage your club members to participate by submitting a photo now and they just may be displayed as April’s Seminole Club Fan of the Month!

To enter the contest, have your members go to Facebook.com/SeminoleClubs or tweet us @SeminoleClubs and have them share their photos with #SeminoleClubFan. Make sure they include their name and the name of their Seminole Club as part of their entry.

Congratulations to Angie from the Atlanta Seminole Club, for winning the March Seminole Club Fan of the Month!

5 days until Seminole Service Day 2014!

The FSU Alumni Association’s Seminole Service Day is just 5 days away! Be sure to check out all the projects going on around the country at alumni.fsu.edu/seminoleserviceday. An e-blast was sent last week to all the areas hosting a Service Day project, but there are a number of other tools you all can use to promote your projects in the local community. All community members should feel welcome to participate with our clubs on this day!

1. Press release- send your event details to local media outlets for immediate release. Use our sample press release to assist you: Seminole Service Day template press release.

2. Social media- post on Facebook and Twitter about your local project. Encourage others to share and retweet your post to increase your audience. Please use hashtag #SeminoleServiceDay on all photos and posts relating to this event.

We are excited to see what our clubs contribute to their local community on Saturday, March 22 and want to share it with our followers. Please be sure to submit a Service Day Follow-Up by Wednesday, March 26th. The form will ask for high resolution photos which can be downloaded from your cell phone, so shoot away! Again, remember to tag all photos on social media with #SeminoleServiceDay.

Most importantly have fun giving back with your fellow Noles while sporting your garnet and gold!
