UDAA Board of Directors Nominations
Submission Deadline04/17/2017
Description

Since 1846, the University of Delaware Alumni Association has strengthened the commitment of graduates to the University of Delaware. The Association is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 4 officers, 24 directors, members at large and the immediate past president. Three men and three women are selected annually to serve four-year terms.

The University of Delaware Alumni Association is proudly dedicated to engaging our entire alumni community by fostering a tradition of lifelong loyalty and commitment to University of Delaware. We provide exceptional value and ongoing support to our alumni worldwide.

Nominee guidelines:

  • The nominee must be a University of Delaware alumnus/na (defined as completing at least 30 credit hours).
  • Prior volunteer experience, whether or not the nominee has maintained a relationship with the University and annual financial support will be considered.
  • The nominee should have a sincere interest in serving on a working board of directors and on one committee. Though much of the work is done at the committee level, board members should be able to attend 4 full board meetings annually on the campus of the University of Delaware. Consistent attendance is expected for board members, as this is an influential role with an important responsibility in supporting our engagement objectives.
  • The nominee is encouraged to submit a current resume/curriculum vita with nominee's history and qualifications in order to assist in the selection process.
  • The nominee must include a statement of interest explaining why he/she wants to serve on the UDAA board of directors. Letters of reference, which provide insight into the nominee's character and leadership qualities, may be submitted and are encouraged for additional support.
  • Nominees will be considered based on the written application and phone interviews will be conducted to better understand the nominee's interests, capabilities and commitment.
  • A limited number of individuals may be considered to serve in the capacity of "Member at Large" to the board. MALs will serve 2 year terms, and may advance to the board in subsequent years. In any event, nominees and Members at Large who don't eventually serve on the board are encouraged to participate in the many alumni engagement opportunities within the university.

New members begin their term on July 1, 2017 with the first full board meeting being held in September. The deadline for nominations is Friday, March 31, 2017.
