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.  Regional and Deputy Regional Coordinators support the board's goals in the strategic plan.

Board members identified three key goals for the Alumni Association for 2014-2018:

I Provide networks, services and communications to facilitate positive interactions of University alumni with each other and with the University.
II Encourage a spirit of philanthropy in support of the University through volunteerism and charitable giving.
III Pass on to future generations a strong, diverse, innovative and engaged Alumni Association that will serve effectively the interests of its alumni and will be a strong advocate for the University.

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.
