The Alumni Association Board of Directors is seeking volunteer board members from among all ECU alumni for a three-year term to begin July 1, 2015.
Board members are expected to maintain active membership in the association and attend four meetings per year.
Members advise alumni association staff, serve on committees and help select scholarship and award recipients. Members encourage alumni involvement and share their professional expertise and talents to advance the university. The ultimate role of the board is to guide staff and volunteers in carrying out the mission of the alumni association and university.
Current first-term board member Tim Willis ’12 was motivated to serve on the board by his passion for ECU and desire to stay involved. “ECU is a rapidly growing institution and I want to help bring new ideas and traditions to help benefit future Pirates to come,” he said.
Willis’ favorite part of serving on the board is working with a team of like-minded people to continue to benefit ECU.
“I most definitely recommend anyone willing to become actively engaged with the alumni association to apply to serve on the board,” Willis said.
He asked that anyone interested should reach out to him or other board members to learn about the impact they can make in the role. “The alumni board is a huge outlet to connect with other Pirates as well as give back to East Carolina,” he said.
Applications will be accepted through Dec. 31 at http://www.piratealumni.com/s/722/rdsite/index.aspx?sid=722&gid=1&pgid=1775.
