Alumni Association Board of Directors

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is committed to being a strong and visible organization and is comprised of alums whose class years span several decades. The Alumni Association Board of Directors mission is to strengthen the relationship between alumni and the University, enhance the relationships among alumni, and develop a culture of stewardship toward McKendree among our alumni.

The Alumni Association Board meets four times each year on the second Saturday of March, June, September and December. The June meeting is the Annual Meeting and is open to all alumni. Board officers are elected at the Annual Meeting.

The McKendree Alumni Association is always growing with the addition of hundreds of new alums each year. Because of our ever-growing population the Alumni Board is looking to expand!

• Give back to your alma mater
