Alumni Association Now Accepting Nominations for Alumni Council 2013-2014
Nominate yourself or a qualified candidate by March 12
February 25, 2013
The University of the Arts Alumni Association is currently accepting nominations from graduates interested in running for election to the Alumni Council. The Council is a partner to the Office of Alumni Relations in its efforts to engage, advance and support UArts, its alumni and students through a variety of programs, services and volunteer opportunities.
Members of the Alumni Council are elected based upon a variety of factors, including their demonstrated leadership and service to their chosen profession, UArts, and the community. Candidates should have a strong belief and commitment to the mission of the Alumni Association. To that end, the Alumni Association is actively seeking a representative group of qualified nominees who meet this criteria and who are eager and willing to commit their time and share their wisdom in representing the alumni constituency.
Council members are expected to accept a leadership and participatory role by working closely with the Office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Association to further its mission and its initiatives. Council participation requires a time commitment at semi-annual meetings of the full board, quarterly committee meetings by phone, and a presence at campus and alumni events. Members are expected to make a financial contribution each year to the University's Annual Fund or other UArts' designation of their choice, ensuring 100 percent Council participation. Elected members will serve three-year terms beginning July 1, 2013.
The call for nominations concludes March 12, 2013. The Office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Council Executive committee will then conduct phone interviews with qualified candidates and elections will be held during the month of April. All UArts alumni will be invited to vote in the elections.
Nominees must submit a letter of interest as well as a completed application form.
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 215-717-6139 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
