Alumni Directory Announcement
We are partnering with a nationally recognized publishing firm, Publishing Concepts (PCI) to help us gather accurate contact information for an updated alumni directory.
It’s been over seven years since The King’s College has published an alumni directory, and it’s time for an update! We’ve heard from many alumni that these hard-copy directories help them to stay in touch with classmates and friends.
We are partnering with a nationally recognized publishing firm, Publishing Concepts (PCI) to help us gather accurate contact information. Starting this month, alumni will receive emails, postcards, and phone calls from PCI requesting updated contact information. We encourage alumni to respond to these communications. Once PCI has collected the information, the company will compile the data and create a new alumni directory, available March 2021.
PCI is a trusted partner of The King’s College. We hope all alumni will participate in our alumni directory project. Alumni will be able to specify which contact information they feel comfortable sharing in the printed book, available only to fellow alumni.
If you have questions, please contact Tonnie Chen, Director of Development Services, at email@example.com or 212-659-3602.
