100% of Supporter dues gathered are used to fund more and better programs and services in the GTA. As a volunteer organization, the IANT does not seek to accumulate surpluses, and sources of funding are used for in-year programming. For more information, please send an email to ivey@funnel.ca.

With your support, the volunteers of the IANT look forward to delivering even more benefits and services in the future!

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is the rationale for introducing the Supporter program?

Ivey alumni tell us they expect their local chapters to organize interesting events which provide an opportunity for alumni to connect with one another. Research has also shown that Ivey alumni feel more affiliation with the Ivey community the more frequently they attend events. Given that Toronto has the largest concentration of Ivey alumni, there are high expectations of the IANT in terms of the number, range and quality of events. The Supporter program will allow the IANT to:

(A) Raise both the connectivity and the profile of the Ivey community in the GTA by creating and growing a core group of alumni who are interested in staying connected

(B) Continue to serve all Ivey alumni even if they choose not to opt into the program, as most events will continue to be open to all alumni

2. Do other North America business school alumni associations offer similar programs?

Yes. Wharton, Harvard and INSEAD, for example, all have a paid membership program in their hub cities. Some have tiered pricing of up to over $1000/year.

3. Do other Ivey Alumni chapters operate similar programs?

Yes. The Ivey BC chapter has done this for more than 5 years, and as a result is now one of the strongest chapters in the Ivey alumni network.

4. Could the 2013-14 event calendar change?

It is possible as we confirm speakers and topics. While we put into a lot of effort to ensure that these events are carried out as planned, circumstances sometimes force us to change event timing, speakers or even the subject.

5. Is the membership due tax deductible?

Unfortunately not as the IANT is not a registered charity.

6. Will you remind me to renew?

Yes, we will send email reminders regarding future Supporter dues. Please always make sure to update your contact information with IANT’s office (ivey@funnel.ca) and the LEAF email on the alumni portal so we always have your contact info.

7. Will you share my personal info?

When an Alumn joins and/or renews with the Supporter program, they are asked if they wish to be included in the IANT Supporter Directory. The Directory is only accessible by Supporter members and includes the name, Ivey Class/Year, employment position, company/employer name and e-mail address for each Supporter who has granted permission to be included in the Directory.

We will NOT share your contact info in any other way.

8. How do I become an IANT volunteer?

Please send an e-mail to IANT’s office if you are interested in volunteering with the chapter – ivey@funnel.ca

9. Who do I contact for questions about becoming a Supporter?
Please email ivey@funnel.ca. Our volunteers will be happy to answer them.
