If you were able to join us for Alumni Weekend 2013, you know that our Alumni Association has picked up a great deal of momentum and we are preparing to move our organization forward to new levels of success.
We took the first step towards our goal during the business meeting on Sunday morning of Alumni Weekend as we voted to amend our constitution and bylaws. The most notable change was to the leadership and management of the organization. We will be transitioning from an Executive Committee to a Board of Directors which will including the association officers and alumni representatives from the School of Arts and Social Sciences; the School of Health Professions, Science, and Wellness; the School of Graduate and Professional Studies; and a member of the Young Alumni (a graduate of the last 15 years or an individual under the age of 35). Our hope is to increase the number of alumni providing leadership for the organization and ensure we have representation from all our alumni constituencies.
Below are the original and revised sections of the Constitution and By-laws of the WAU Alumni Association.
Thank you for your continued support of the WAU Alumni Association.
