National Alumni Board

The National Alumni Board of Directors (NAB) are volunteer members who provide the leadership of the Gannon University Alumni Association, representing the whole alumni body at Gannon and serving as an advisory board to the university’s Alumni Services Office. Bylaws regulate the activities of the board and the various alumni regions.

A member of the National Alumni Board is chosen to hold the position based on demonstrated involvement, support and commitment to Gannon University and its alumni (Gannon University and Villa Maria College). In accepting the three-year term appointment, a Director agrees to fulfill the requirements and meet the responsibilities associated with board membership.

During past strategic planning sessions, board members identified four key goals for the Alumni Association:

I Develop a more active, diverse Alumni Association
II Increase support to University's recruitment efforts
III Strengthen connections between and among University and alumni
IV Support University fundraising efforts

They further outlined objectives, action steps and accountability. While members of the NAB have accepted responsibility for the plan's implementation, the greater involvement of the Alumni Association is critical in the accomplishment of these goals.
