Alumni Association Volunteer Committees

The TMC Alumni Association has several volunteer opportunities through which many of our activities are accomplished. Alumni volunteers are at the core of our efforts. We encourage all alumni, no matter when you graduated, to join our ad hoc volunteer committees. In order to volunteer for a committee, you'll need to click on one of the titles below.

College Correspondence Committee

Many TMC items you receive in your mailboxes are assembled by our College Correspondence Committee. They volunteer their time and efforts to assist the Office of Institutional Advancement with several mailings and special projects throughout the year.

  • Group of retired or semi-retired alumni able to volunteer their time to help the Office of Institutional Advancement with small mailings (less than 1,500 constituents).
  • This group gathers 2 - 3 times per year to stuff and label mailings while networking in a social atmosphere.
  • Group is typically needed in spring and summer months. You will be notified 1- 2 weeks prior to mail dates. Mailings typically finish within 1 - 2 days.
