ALUMNI BOARD NOMINATIONS
The University of Chicago Alumni Association is seeking nominations
of alumni to serve on its Board of Governors, a 25-member group
that sets policy relating to alumni and advises the University on
matters of interest and concern to alumni.
We are looking for candidates with a record of
involvement in, support for, and commitment to the University. Members
are chosen from the whole alumni body. The board’s composition
ideally reflects the diversity of Chicago alumni with respect to
age, gender, ethnicity, geographic location, and degree(s). For
more information, please go to www.alumni.uchicago.edu/bog.html.
Members attend meetings twice a year in Chicago,
serve on board committees and task forces, and act as representatives
of the University in their home communities. New members, who will
be elected at the board’s April meeting, will serve a three-year
term beginning July 1, 2005.
Serving on the Alumni Association’s Board
of Governors is a great way to give back to, and stay connected
with, the University. If you know some alumni who could make a difference
and would like to nominate them for membership, please send us one
or two paragraphs summarizing each nominee’s involvement with
the University and indicating special talents or expertise the person
would bring to the Alumni Association leadership. Please be sure
to comment on each nominee’s breadth and/or depth of involvement,
and how that involvement has benefited the University and its alumni.
For more detailed criteria, please see our Web site.
The deadline for board nominations is January
15. Nominations may be submitted online or sent to: Nominating Committee,
The University of Chicago Alumni Association, 5555 South Woodlawn
Avenue, Chicago, IL 60637: fax: 773/702-2166; e-mail: email@example.com.
