I agree with your friends and family. Also, bear in mind that the title
could be a lofty one. I would ask to hear more about the position, and then
tailor my resume. Obviously the alumni director knows your background - she
wouldn't have thought of you if she thought you had no chance. I think you
have absolutely nothing to lose, and everything to gain by throwing your
hat into the ring. Even if they decide you are not a perfect fit for this
job, then they know you, and will keep you in mind for further openings.
Go for it.
