ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BOARD MEMBER ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The Alumni Association Board is an advisory body created to represent alumni issues and concerns, and to help connect alumni with Albright’s 21,000 living alumni. The Alumni Association is led by a board of Albright College graduates of varying class years, occupations, gender, race and life experience. The Alumni Board typically has 25 elected members. They serve as a representative voice for our alumni body, connecting alumni with current students, and upholding Albright traditions for future generations. The Alumni Board is not an independent, separately incorporated entity; the Alumni Relations Office oversees the Alumni Association and the Executive Committee of the Alumni Board reports through them to the President and the Board of Trustees.
