The IUAA Board of Managers is the governing and fiduciary board for the IUAA, Inc, a non-profit organization, and the IUAA Executive Council is an advisory council that recommends to the Board various policies and initiatives. Each spring, IUAA members have the opportunity to elect volunteers to the both of these bodies. We seek strong leaders to serve IUAA in these capacities.
Criteria for Board and Executive Council Composition include individuals with:
- A demonstrated commitment to IU, alumni engagement, and serving others
- Enthusiasm and willingness to be a public advocate for Indiana University and to adhere to the vision, mission, values, and priorities of the Alumni Association and the University.
- Diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, as reflected in the racial, ethnic, geographic, age, sexual orientation, campuses, schools, personal interests, professional affiliations, and experiences of the volunteer body.
- A record of giving time, talent, and treasure, as evidenced by a history of alumni membership, volunteerism, and donating to Indiana University.
Suggested names for consideration can be submitted by current Board or Executive Council members, IU volunteers, staff, and friends. Although a call for candidates will be conducted each fall, names are accepted throughout the year.
To submit suggested names, submit this form.
