Call for New Board Members
Join the Boston board!
The Alumni Club of Boston is seeking more board members, with specific focus on event planning and social media marketing. Anyone interested in volunteering for a board position, please complete this form by Friday, August 24, 2018.
Questions about involvement? Please reach out to President Emily Chen, AB'12, or your UChicago staff liaison, Tanya Hickson.
Executive Committee: The executive committee is the core group of volunteers leading the club. They bear the ultimate responsibility for maintaining communications with the alumni community and for providing a diverse slate of programming aimed at engaging alumni, parents, and friends from all generations, life stages, and areas of affiliation within the University. Additionally, the executive committee members are responsible for leading a monthly call with all club volunteers and ensuring that all members-at-large are engaged and informed of club activities. This group of decision-makers is led by the club President, while the remaining executive committee members share responsibilities of more traditional communications and programming chairs. The board is seeking event planning co-chairs and communications team members. Alumni who are event planners or experienced in marketing, professionally or in other volunteer capacities, are encouraged to apply.
Members-at-large: Members-at-large provide advice and support to the executive committee. They are involved in recurring club activities and one-time events. A member-at-large may help identify and invite panelists, assist with outreach to his or her personal network, or help with logistics and check-in at the event itself. Board Member-at-large positions are ideal for alumni who are interested in volunteering, but are not able to devote a large amount of time to the club or for alumni who have interest in a particular area (e.g., healthcare) and wish only to work in that space. Members-at-large are required to regularly attend club events, participate in monthly volunteer calls, and to actively engage with other members of their committee. The board is seeking Alumni to support social media marketing and assist with working events. Alumni who are interested joining the board for the first time or seeking a non-executive commitment are encouraged to apply.
