Board Officers

The Board Development Committee is currently accepting Officer nominations. 

The Board Development Committee will work to present a slate of officer candidates who demonstrate both willingness and ability to commit time, ideas, and expertise to further the Alumni Association’s mission and the Board of Director’s strategic initiatives.  Equally important, the Board Development Committee will seek to identify candidates who display strong aptitude for leading others by engendering a positive sense of trust, respect and collaboration between their board colleagues, University and campus representatives, and alumni constituents. 
Newly elected Officers serve a two-year term beginning July 1, 2017.  More information on officer roles and responsibilities is available below.
