Resources for Alumni Volunteers

Updated Workfront club and society virtual programming request

Alumni Group Leaders,

To help you connect and engage with your fellow Buckeyes, OSUAA has put together new ways to support your groups and the virtual events you’d like to host.

Event support

To request virtual support for board meetings and events, please e-mail Jacky Bennett at

In the screenshot below, you can see two new prompts to request support for virtual programs.

  • Virtual board meetings
    • OSUAA staff can host your meeting via our Carmen Zoom tool. They’ll work with you to set up Carmen Zoom, provide your group a link and start the meeting for you. They’ll depart once everyone feels comfortable with the technology.
  • Virtual engagement events
    • If your event will be an engagement opportunity, you can request consultation from our OSUAA Events team. They’ll help with logistics and tips.

Audio/video conferencing tool reimbursement

  • OSUAA will reimburse Scarlet and Gray groups for their subscription to a video conferencing service
    • Your group will be reimbursed your monthly charge as part of the eligible 10 board meetings for Scarlet and Gray groups
    • More information can be found in the “Remote conferencing options for clubs and societies” document here.
