2018 ALUMNI DIRECTORY PROJECT
The HBU Alumni Association is excited to announce that we are publishing an alumni directory in 2018. We have contracted with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), a reputable publisher that works with numerous universities nationwide. Over the next couple of months, PCI will be contacting HBU alumni and friends via mail, phone, and email to request that you update your information so you can stay connected. We hope that you will participate in our alumni directory project. Please note that the Alumni Directory is opt-in.
If you have questions for PCI, you may call their customer service desk at 1-800-982-1590.
I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for Houston Baptist University. 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 Houston Baptist University to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you and future alumni.
How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
Houston Baptist University has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
- The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Houston Baptist University 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 Houston Baptist University. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Houston Baptist University any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Houston Baptist University 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 Houston Baptist University project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed. One of the numbers for the Houston Baptist University alumni is 866-620-9637.
If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information. If you have questions, you may call PCI’s customer service desk at 1.800.982.1590.
Can anyone purchase a directory?
The Houston Baptist University Alumni Directory is available for sale only to Houston Baptist University alumni.
When will I receive my directory?
The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months. Since we began the project in August 2017 the directories will be distributed in August 2018.
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. You may also communicate this information to the PCI customer service desk (1.800.982.1590) or to the Alumni Association.
I ordered a directory/package over the phone and would like to cancel my order. How do I do this?
Call the PCI customer service help desk at 1.800.982.1590, and they will take care of this for you.
