The Alumni Association Annual Meeting will take place virtually on Tuesday, April 28, at 6:45 p.m. ET, via a Zoom webinar.
Election of President and Executive Vice President
Immediately prior to the Annual Meeting, form directors will attend a separate online meeting to elect a new president and executive vice president of the Association. These individuals will lead the Alumni Association for a three-year term, from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2023, with a concurrent three-year term representing alumni interests on the Board of Trustees. Following are the candidates for these positions:
There will be one ballot per Form, cast by the form director (or a designated proxy) on behalf of the Form. Please review each candidate’s statement and CV above, and contact your form director to share your thoughts on how the Form should vote
The Annual Meeting will begin promptly at 6:45 p.m. ET with an update from Rector Kathy Giles. Our first order of business will be to consider a series of Bylaws changes, proposed by the Governance Committee and approved by the Alumni Association Executive Committee (AAEC). The proposed revisions include:
- An increase in the maximum number of the Association’s directors, from 85 to 100. This change accounts for forms remaining active in the Association long past their graduation years and allows for the potential of increasing the number of at-large directors on the AAEC.
- A process for removing officers of the Association, should there be cause.
- A change pertaining to the office of the president, allowing an individual to run for this office for a second consecutive term.
- A process of ranked voting to settle a tie.
Unlike the officer election, this meeting is not limited to form directors. All alumni present at the Annual Meeting are eligible to vote on these changes. Voting instructions will be emailed to you before the meeting.
