UAA Alumni Association calls for board nominations

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

The UAA Alumni Association (UAAAA) is seeking nominations for candidacy to the UAAAA Board of Directors. We are looking for interested UAA alumni from across the state and throughout the nation who can represent a culturally, geographically and professionally diverse alumni base and put their talents to use serving for the betterment of the Alumni Association and the University of Alaska Anchorage. UAA alums employed by the University are welcome to join the association and vote. Though Alumni Association bylaws exempt them from serving as board members, they are heartily encouraged to spread the word to the qualified.

UAA and its alumni are experiencing increased recognition at the local, state and national level and this is being reflected in an increase in alumni activity and interest. To handle this increase, the Board of Directors recently added additional seats to its membership and is looking for accomplished, motivated and interested people to fill vacancies and to run for seats that are up for reelection. Five of the 15 seats that comprise the Board of Directors will be filled in the upcoming summer election. Seats are filled for three-year terms.

All active UAA Alumni Association members are eligible to serve and vote. The only requirements are (1) that you must be a member of the Association (membership is free and can be done online at and (2) that you must be nominated no later than June 8 (as long as you are an active member, you can self-nominate). If you are unsure of your membership status, please call (907) 786-1941.
