Reed Alumni Board Nomination Form
Please fill in the form to nominate someone, or yourself, to serve on the Alumni Board of Directors for terms that commence July 1, 2023. **Please only submit one form per nominee. If you are nominating multiple people, a separate form will need to be submitted for each of them.** Deadline for submissions is Saturday, July 16, 2022.

As described in the Alumni Board Guidebook:

At-large member (3-year term):  There are five new at-large members of the alumni board selected by nominating committee annually. Principal duties of at-large members include attending (in person or by phone) five board meetings annually and participating meaningfully on a standing committee or task force. Although not a requirement, many new at-large members have at least some previous volunteer experience with Reed.

Secretary (4-year term): Executive Committee (EC) members are the board officers, and normally serve on the EC for four years beginning as secretary and advancing through positions of increased responsibility. One or more of these years may be concurrent with a portion of the at-large term. Typically, current or past members of the alumni board are invited by the EC to consider nomination as secretary during the call for nominations period in the spring; however, self-nominations and nominations by others are also encouraged. In consecutive years, the secretary moves into the positions of vice president, president and immediate past president, and the individuals in these positions progress accordingly.

Alumni Trustee (4-year term): There are four members of the Reed Board of Trustees that are nominated by the alumni board as Alumni Trustees (one new member each year). Alumni trustees report to the alumni board on the affairs of the college and report back to the trustees on initiatives and concerns of the alumni board. Alumni trustees can be selected from the alumni association as a whole, but are generally alumni who have provided volunteer support to the College, including the alumni board. It is important that the alumni trustee be an effective communicator and collaborator, who is willing to assume trusteeship including financial support (any amount of financial support is sufficient for trusteeship) and other duties of a Reed Trustee, and also understands and is able to represent the Alumni Association. Please see the Constitution of the Reed College Alumni Association Article V for more information about alumni trustees.

Nominating Committee Member (1-year term): The Nominating Committee (NC) selects the slate of new at-large board members, secretary, and alumni trustee to be presented to the Alumni Association for the following year. Committee members are the immediate past president of the alumni board (chair), the current president, and three non-members of the Alumni Board. Please see the Constitution of the Reed College Alumni Association Article VII in the appendix for more information.

Thank you for your submission and taking the time to tell us more about the nominee!  

Submissions will be reviewed by the nominating committee and the candidates that best fill the current needs of the board will be asked to serve.   Your endorsement is encouraged and an important part in the evaluation process.  

The nominating committee strives for demographic balance on the Alumni Board, including class year, gender, ethnicity, major, geographic location, etc.
