Nominations open for Auburn Alumni Association directors and officers

The Nominating Committee of the Auburn Alumni Association Board of Directors is requesting nominations from alumni and friends of Auburn University for four new directors. All nominees must be life members of the association and be willing to serve on a volunteer basis. These board positions require travel to Auburn at least three times per year. Those selected will be installed this fall; each will serve a four-year term.

Nominations also are requested for the officer positions of president and vice president, both of which serve two-year terms. All nominees must be current or former members of the Auburn Alumni Association Board of Directors elected by the members and life members of the association.

Candidates should have a demonstrated history of leadership in support of the Auburn Alumni Association and Auburn University. Strong consideration will be shown to those who have actively promoted the association and Auburn University through involvement with local Auburn Clubs. Additionally, persons who have previously contributed both time and resources to Auburn University and the association will be strongly considered. In agreeing to serve on the Auburn Alumni Association board, directors and officers are expected to join the association’s sustaining life membership program through contributions to the “Circle of Excellence” scholarship society.

The Nominating Committee also will consider an individual’s accomplishments as demonstrated through career development and community service, along with their potential for representing the association’s various constituencies.
