In most years, the Alumni Association Board seeks nominations for talented, accomplished new members -- alumni with records of engagement with and service to the College who can help the Alumni Board reflect Franklin & Marshall's diverse alumni body. Once elected, board members must be willing to dedicate significant time to board responsibilities and participate in annual giving to the College.
However, the Alumni Board is not currently seeking nominations for new board members for service beginning next fiscal year (2019-2020, which begins July 1). While atypical, in the current year, no board members are rolling off due to expirations of their terms. Thus, board membership will remain constant into next year. The Alumni Board expects to resume seeking nominations for new members beginning in late 2019/early 2020 for service in the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
In the meantime, there are many other ways to become actively engaged and invested in Franklin & Marshall College. Regional Chapters and their Chapter Councils offer an opportunity to connect with fellow alumni and support F&M in many regions around the country and the world. Additionally, recognized Affinity Groups bring together alumni based on shared interests no matter where they reside. Alumni Weekend in June is a wonderful opportunity to return to campus, especially for those in reunion years. And, of course, TRUE BLUE Weekend, which includes homecoming, will be rich with opportunities for connection and engagement -- and some fun.
We look forward to opening the Alumni Association Board’s new member nominations process later this year. If you have any questions, please contact Krista Mattern at 717-358-4274 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
