Any person graduating from ICM/ATS formal program automatically is enrolled into the alumni association. Currently there is no fee for this.

The alumni committee is right now focusing in two areas.

  1. We are attempting to develop a communication strategy using email as the primary tool. Currently we have 734 people that have graduated from one or more programs. Unfortunately we have email addresses for less than half of them making communication difficult. If you are an alumni and not sure if we have a working email for you please send your address to Greg Snell email: snell@usa.com  In May, 2010 there was a drawing for those who provided us with contact information and Eustace Kiama was the winner of a brand new laptop.

  2.  Secondly, in the last year there have been two sets of regional meetings in places like Nairobi, Eldoret, Kitale, Nakuru, Kisumu and Kisii. Dr. Phil Walker recently presented the introduction seminar to the new ATS MA program on “Transformational Leadership” and it was very well received. We have graduated 322 students in our BA program and hope that they will form the nucleolus of the first MA class in this new program. Our plan is to hold regional meetings once a year and a central group meeting also once a year. For a list of brainstorming ideas of how ATS and the alumni can support each other click on this link
