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 2019-2021 term. All AU graduates are encouraged to apply.
Here are the details:
• Each term of office lasts two years, and each member may 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. Meetings are held typically held during business hours on weekdays.
• Members are expected to represent the Alumni Board at AU events, promote the university, and contribute a gift of at least $1,000 per year.
Joining the Alumni Board is an excellent way to hone leadership skills, help shape the future of AU, and most importantly, give back. 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 key ambassadors for AU.
A nominations committee will review applications and present a slate of nominees to board president Joe Vidulich, SPA/BA ’08, for approval and appointment. New board members will assume responsibilities beginning in January 2019, following a traditional welcome celebration.
To nominate yourself or a fellow alumnus/a, submit an application and a current résumé and/or bio online by Friday, September 29, 2018. Contact Carlita Pitts, senior director of alumni engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amy Lampert, SOC/BA '94, chair of the nominations and governance committee, at email@example.com with questions.
