Recognizing a host of development opportunities, SEO collaborates with alumni to create a range of both industry-specific and general professional growth programs and resources relevant to their needs. By continuing to invest in the success of program participants, SEO achieves its mission of preparing leaders while making itself a “forward-looking” organization – where student participation during high school or college represents only the beginning of their relationship with SEO.
Panels and networking forums, as well as virtual dial-in discussions, give alumni a chance to hear from experienced professionals on a variety of topics. Past event topics have included:
- SEO Alternative Investments Conference (annual)
