Alumni Directory Project

ALUMNI DIRECTORY PROJECT

Alumni from The American College of Financial Services are invited to participate in our 2020 Alumni Directory Project by providing updated contact information

Over the next few months, alumni from The American College of Financial Services will be contacted via postcard, phone call and email by our partner vendor Publishing Concepts (PCI). The American College of Financial Services Alumni Association is working with PCI to collect and update the contact information of our more than 170,000 alumni worldwide.

Up-to-date personal and business information will allow The College to better provide you with opportunities for lifelong learning, networking, and promotion of your designation and/or degree.

When PCI contacts you on behalf of The College, consider sharing basic contact and employment information updates with them. Your data will not be used for anything besides the creation of the directory, and you can request to exclude information from the directory that you wish to be kept private.

FAQs are addressed below. If you have further questions, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at alumni@theamericancollege.edu or call 610-526-1354.

Thank you for your participation!

 

The image of the postcard is an example of the one that you may receive in the mail from our partner vendor, Publishing Concepts Inc. 

I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for The American College. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?  
We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows the Alumni Relations Office at The American College of Financial Services to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better support you.
 

How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?  
The College has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:  
The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by The American College of Financial Services for the publication of the Directory will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Directory and except as required by court order or law.
The Directory will be made available only to alumni of The American College of Financial Services. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to The College any and all electronic files that have been supplied by The College or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
 

I would like to verify and update my information. How may I do this? 
If you have received a postcard or an email with a telephone number, you may call the number to speak with a dedicated representative for The American College of Financial Services’ Alumni Verification Project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed.
If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information. 
If you did not receive a card or an email from PCI you can call their help desk at 1-888-372-7324.
 

Can anyone purchase a directory?  
The American College of Financial Services’ Alumni Directory is available for sale only to alumni from The College.
 

How much does it cost to purchase a directory?  
You are not required to make a purchase in order to be included in the directory. 
If you would like, you can purchase:

  • Hard-bound print directory for $119.98 plus $19.95 S&H and applicable sales tax.
  • Digital directory for $119.98 plus any applicable tax.
  • Digital Publication by Decade $59.98 plus any applicable sales tax.

PCI is required to collect and remit sales tax to states that charge sales tax.   
 

Can I choose some or all of my information not to be printed in the directory?  
When you call to update your information, you can tell the representative what information you would prefer to have excluded.
 

What is the cost of the project to The American College of Financial Services?  
PCI is producing this directory free of charge. As PCI has agreed to prepare and send marketing, take calls and updates, compile, format the directory information and publish the directories for The American College of Financial Services at no cost, it is necessary for the directory sales to cover said costs. This ensures that PCI’s time and efforts result in data verification for The College as well as a directory product for our constituents.
