Nominate Alumni for Alumni Advisory Board

Nomination Process

Lamar University Office of Alumni Affairs is accepting nominations on behalf of the Alumni Advisory Board to elect new board members for 2017-2018. Nominations are being accepted through May 31, 2017 and can be submitted by completing the form below.

Role

Lamar University alumni are a vital part of the Lamar University community. Alumni Advisory Board members act as ambassadors of Lamar University to the community. Board members are "informed insiders" about the happenings at Lamar and are expected to spread the word about the good things happening at LU and answer questions about the Univeristy that may come up in their communities. Board members also provide feedback and advice to Lamar University on various topics as well as provide feedback about Lamar University Alumni programming, community outreach, and marketing efforts.

Selection

Members of the Alumni Advisory Board are selected by the Alumni Advisory Board Nominating Committee. To best represent all alumni of the University, the Alumni Advisory Board seeks diversity in its membership, including by age, gender, degree, ethnicity, and range of LU involvement. While no single characteristic defines an ideal alumni advisory board member, the board seeks nominees who are highly enthusiastic about Lamar University and Lamar University students. Board members should be committed to attend biannual meetings and should be interested in attending and supporting major LU alumni events such as homecoming and the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner.

Term of Office and Meetings

Alumni Advisory Board members serve for one (1) three year term.  The board has two general meetings in the evenings per year during the fall and spring semesters. The board also has two lunch-time committee meetings per year.
