Greg Fansler completes term as president of Council of Alumni Marketing and Membership Professionals
February 21, 2019
Greg Fansler, director of reunion programs for alumni relations, recently finished his third term as president of the Council of Alumni Marketing and Membership Professionals (CAMMP), an international organization that provides professional development and shared business practices for more than 450 alumni relations professionals representing 200 different institutions of higher education in areas of marketing and communication for alumni associations at colleges and universities.
“Serving this organization and being connected to a network of some the profession’s brightest minds has been a tremendous honor,” Fansler said. “I am very proud of the shared work my fellow board members accomplished to advance the organization.”
Fansler first took a leadership role in the organization when Virginia Tech hosted CAMMP’s annual conference in 2013.
“I believe Virginia Tech and our faculty who presented — Nikki Giovanni and John Boyer — made a lasting impact on peers across the country. I still receive positive comments from people who attended,” said Fansler.
The following year Fansler co-chaired the sponsorship committee for the 2014 conference, where he was elected to the board of directors as treasurer. He was elected as president at the 2015 conference and served for three terms, which concluded this past summer.
In his current role as immediate past president, Fansler is working to help grow CAMMP’s membership with institutions, such as historically black colleges and universities that have not previously been associated with it.
At Virginia Tech, Fansler provides leadership for advancement’s reunions program. He oversees all of the 50th Anniversary Class Reunions, Old Guard Society of Golden Alumni Reunion held in May, and the Alumni Reunion weekend held in June. He also coordinates Virginia Tech’s Hokie Day at the General Assembly. He is a founding member of VT Stories and has served on and chaired a variety of university-wide committees since he returned to work at Virginia Tech in 2007. He currently serves on the Commission on Administrative and Professional Faculty Affairs and as faculty advisor for two student organizations, Pi Kappa Alpha and Omicron Delta Kappa. He is also a member of the Pamplin MBA Advisory Board.
Fansler received bachelor’s degrees in both finance and management and an MBA from Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business.
