Aim: To provide a friendly forum for the exchange of views and experiences between representatives of school alumni societies.
Membership: Open to representatives of any school alumni society. New members are always welcome. Details are available on the website – arops.org.uk – where you can also find information on events and member societies’ news, regularly updated. Please contact us by email: email@example.com.
Meetings: Our annual Conference, usually held in May, is our main event and an ideal opportunity to meet with other representatives and to share thoughts on current topics.
Our 2022 Conference will be held at Bristol Grammar School on Saturday 14 May.
Apart from the Conference and the AGM, AROPS also organises a series of online Video Network Meetings which allow members to discuss items concerning alumni engagement on an informal basis.
