Successful reunions donâ€™t happen on their own. They take a lot of strategic planning and engagement to ensure participation. Reunions Reinvented consistently drives greater participation for record-setting attendance and increased donors and giving.
Here’s what our schools we have partnered with say about our work and results:
â€œI highly recommend Margie Palladino and Reunions Reinvented. When you work with Margie, you will be adding a skilled professional and creative partner to your reunion and fundraising teams. She helped increase attendance at our BC Law reunions and strengthened connections between BC Law and our alumni, while also playing an integral role in our improved fundraising results. In addition, Margie is delightful to work withâ€”thoughtful, efficient, and fun.â€
â€”Â Vincent Rougeau
Dean, Boston College Law School
â€œMargie has been a wonderful partner on our law school reunion work. She brings a very personal touch to our reunion communications materials, helping alumni reconnect with one another and rekindle the warm feelings from their law school days. She is smart and strategic, always looking for creative ways to use the material she gathers and examine opportunities to use data to drive success. The extra mile makes a tremendous difference in the value she brings and in the outcomes we achieve.â€
â€”Â Jessica Cashdan
Former Executive Director, Schools and Programs
â€œThe work that MargieÂ did toÂ develop our 30th andÂ 40th reunion classes wasÂ exceptional, resulting inÂ more than doubling theÂ alumni attendance atÂ reunion for both classesÂ and a 156% and 32%Â increase in givingÂ respectively.â€
â€”Â Amanda Angel
Former Director, Annual Giving
Boston College Law School
â€œWe engaged Reunions Reinvented to help us change our participation level as well as class giving total. The results were astounding! The participation rate shot through the roof and hit an all-time high for the Law School.
Margie worked diligently to develop various vehicles in which to get the class engaged and excited to attend the Reunion Gala.
Margie is talented, creative, and hard-working and always had the Law Schoolâ€™s best interest in mind.
Our Reunion was such an incredible success that we asked Margie to take on more reunion classes the next year.â€
â€” Cristine More
Former Director of Advancement
Boston University School of Law
â€œWe have been incredibly pleased with Margieâ€™s work. Margie seems to have perfected her formula for engaging class leaders, streamlining communication, and most importantly, making the process fun for those involved.
Margie did her homework by asking all the right questions in advance about our institutionâ€™s history. She took the time to get to know us and was genuinely interested in who we are.
Margie has a passion for what she does, yet her experience as a practicing attorney gives her a perspective that allows her to relate to law schools and law alumni in a way that would be impossible for anyone else.
Margie has been professional, responsive, attentive, and highly organized.â€
â€” Heather Palacios Rahhal
Former Director of External Relations
The University of Tulsa College of Law
â€œAfter looking around for vendors to produce our 50th reunion book, we opted to go with Reunions Reinvented out of Boston for our Class of 1971 book. Margie does amazing work and I can’t recommend her product â€“ and service â€“ highly enough.
The 342-page book of class member memories and experiences is absolutely higher-quality than we’d produced previously – whether in-house or with a vendor. Margie’s attention to detail, commitment to copy-editing the entire thing, flair for creativity, and ability to immerse herself in the class’s experience led to rave reviews from our class when they received it electronically this spring. (And again, we didn’t have to do any of it, where previously we were very involved in all these steps!)
There’s a lot more to say in praise of Margie and her work – I haven’t even mentioned the layout and photos and filler she created, nor the other services she provides schools as they work to build their alumni communities.â€

Associate Director of Alumni and Family Engagement, Denison University
