Alumni Board Seeks New Members for 2017-2019

By Carlita Pitts

The American University Alumni Board

Looking for ways to reconnect with your alma mater? Interested in helping make key decisions about programming and outreach to your fellow Eagles? The American University Alumni Board is currently accepting applications for its 2017-2019 term. Any graduate of AU, whether undergraduate or graduate, is encouraged to apply.

Here are the details:
• Each term of office lasts two years, and each member can serve up to two consecutive terms.
• Board members must attend four meetings in DC per year, and serve both as stewards to and for the general alumni body.  
• Members are expected to represent the board at AU alumni events, positively promote the university, and financially contribute to the university with a gift of at least $1,000 per year.

Joining the Alumni Board is an excellent way to hone your leadership skills, help shape the future of AU, and most importantly, give back to the university. While the nominations process for the board is extremely competitive, membership is very rewarding. Members play an active role in guiding the efforts and initiatives of the Office of Alumni Relations and serve as regional, national, and international AU ambassadors.

Applications are due October 5. Once the nominations committee reviews the applications, a slate of nominees will be submitted to board president Andrea Agathoklis Murino, SPA-CAS/BA ’98, for approval and appointment. New board members will assume their responsibilities in January 2017, following a welcome celebration with President Neil Kerwin, SPA/BA ’71.

To nominate yourself or a fellow alumnus/a, submit an application and a current résumé online by Wednesday, October 5, 2016. Contact Raina Lenney, assistant vice president of alumni relations, at 202-885-5936 or with questions.
