Alumni Board Seeks New Members

AU Alumni Board at the first meeting of the year

Looking for ways to reconnect with your alma mater? Interested in helping make key decisions about programming and outreach? The American University Alumni Board is accepting applications for its 2018-2020 term. All AU graduates are 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.

A nominations committee reviews applications, presenting a slate of nominees to board president Joe Vidulich, SPA/BA ’08, for approval and appointment. New board members will assume their responsibilities in January 2018, following a welcome celebration. 

To nominate yourself or a fellow alumnus/a, submit an application and a current résumé online by Wednesday, October 11, 2017. Contact Raina Lenney, assistant vice president of alumni relations, at or Amy Jones, chair of the nominations and governance committee, at with questions.
