What are the expectations of membership?
The expectation of membership includes being present at the two meetings of the Council each year: the fall meeting usually occurs in late October or early November; the spring meeting is usually in late April or early May. Weekend meetings typically run from Friday through Saturday afternoon. The presence of all of members is critical to the success of the Council. The Executive Committee has one additional meeting in early February.
How are new members nominated?
For all committees, candidates may be suggested by current members, by PA faculty & staff, and by soliciting nominations from all alumni, including current Council members. This stream may result in a longer pipeline (1-3 years) before everyone can be considered. To be considered for membership of the Class Secretaries Committee, Annual Giving Board Committee, or Alumni Admission Representatives Committee, nominees need to be active volunteers in those roles.
