Nominations for Alumni Advisory Council needed

August 30, 2012

By Diana Childers, (334) 844-1274,

The Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine is seeking nominations for its Alumni Advisory Council which consists of 12 members and three officers. The council plays an integral role in guiding the college and raising private support for various activities. Members are elected for four years on a staggered-term basis, with one-fourth of the terms expiring each year.

The council also contains non-voting honorary and ex-officio members. Honorary members may serve at the discretion of the dean of the college. Members are selected from Alabama, Kentucky, and other states with active alumni. The dean meets with the council during the fall and spring and receives insight for college programs, planning, and development. 

In 2012, the Alumni Advisory Council will have one open position. Alumni are invited to self-nominate or nominate Auburn graduates for four-year terms to the council. Nomination and election will take place at the fall 2012 council meeting with the newly elected member(s) assuming position at the spring 2013 meeting. Please give careful consideration to those nominated and discuss the opportunity with an individual considered for nomination.

Prospective members must provide a current curriculum vitae which includes evidence of their support for Auburn University and the College of Veterinary Medicine. In addition, letters of support written by at least two Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine alumni must be received.

The nominations committee will present recommendations to the full council for election. The dean will formally notify the individual(s) selected.
