Board of Directors

2022–23 Board Nominations

The Purdue Alumni Association Board of Directors is seeking applications for prospective board members. Any Purdue Alumni member may run for an open position.

The following director positions will be filled prior to the annual meeting in the spring:
Indiana Region (one opening)
East Region (one opening)

Nominations may be made by local clubs or by a group of 25 or more Purdue Alumni members. Candidates may also nominate themselves. Board member qualifications can be found in Article VII of our rules and procedures.

Nominees will be screened and interviewed by a committee in early 2023. Selected candidates will be submitted to a vote of the dues-paying membership of the Purdue Alumni Association. The election will take place online from April 10 to 14, and the results will be ratified by the Purdue Alumni board at the 2023 annual meeting.



Nominations must be submitted online by Tuesday, November 1, 2022.
