Alumni Council Seeks New Members


The TFAS Alumni Council is calling for new members for its 2012-2013 term. CLICK HERE to nominate an alumnus whom you believe would make an effective member of the council. Alumni are welcome to nominate themselves. The nomination deadline is Friday, September 30.

The mission of the Alumni Council is to keep the flame of TFAS burning among alumni by working to encourage active participation by alumni in current activities of the TFAS community. The council represents all alumni and serves as its decision-making body.

“Serving on the Alumni Council is one of the greatest ways to give back and stay connected to TFAS and fellow alumni around the country and world,” said governance and membership vice chairwoman Megan Hoot (P 02). “I have served on the council for seven years, and feel I have truly helped build a stronger alumni base while also enhancing my own knowledge, skills and networks.”

Members of the council showcase the diversity of TFAS alumni and represent all institutes, geographic regions and ages.

The current council is made up of 24 at-large members with each U.S. chapter president also serving as members. There is also a steering committee, which includes the council’s chairman Dan McConchie (J 93, A 95) and five other officers.

The Alumni Council meets twice a year at the spring conference and the fall leadership conference. Their main goals are to ensure alumni involvement in TFAS activities, to strengthen the alumni network and to improve participation in alumni fundraising.

Members are required to attend at least one meeting per year, either by phone or in person, volunteer their time to TFAS and make an annual financial contribution.

The 2010-2011 term comes to a close in December, and the new members will begin their two-year term in January.
