The Alumni Association is governed by the Alumni Board of Directors. Board members are chosen through a slate approval process by the Alumni Association membership. A ballot is presented in the spring K-Stater magazine, which is mailed to all members of the Association.
In addition to elected members, the board is comprised of standing directors to include the university president, the student body president, the Student Alumni Board president, a representative of the KSU Foundation, a treasurer and a secretary.
Newly elected members serve four-year terms. Officers of the board include the board chair, chair-elect, past chair, treasurer, secretary and two members-at-large.
As the governing body for the Association, members of the Board of Directors adopted and approved a mission statement, to enhance our Kansas State University family through lifelong involvement. To achieve the mission, the Association will strive to meet the following strategic initiatives: increase use of electronic media, grow membership, grow participation in event opportunities, grow Alumni Association fund-raising efforts and partner with the university to increase enrollment. The Board also oversees the financial matters and investments of the Alumni Association and Alumni Center.
The nominating committee selects potential board members from a pool of candidates which currently includes more than 300 prospects. Candidates are slated based on criteria including geographic location, professional and personal skills, education, gender, ethnicity and age. Strong consideration is given to candidates who have been involved with the Association and university.
