Alumni Association

The mission of the Alumni Association of Notre Dame College is to reinforce connections and foster relationships among alumni, students, faculty, and our communities in support of the Notre Dame College mission.

The vision of the Alumni Association of Notre Dame College is to enrich the quality of the Notre Dame College community and invest in initiatives that ensure its future.

Members of the Notre Dame College Alumni Association have approved the new Strategic Plan. Between December 15, 2016 and January 15, 2017 224 voted for the plan. 218 voted to approve it and 6 voted with disapproval. Since the plan received over 97% approval we will move forward with the steps to implement the plan.

A Transition Team will lead the process until a new Board is presented for a vote at the Annual Business meeting on Saturday, April 22. The members of the team are: Candy Clemson ’70, Mary Louise Jurkiewicz Beckstrom ’87, Tim Lowery ’16, Joe Pavelek ’14, Sr. Eileen Quinlan ’74, Fran Rifici ’79, and Nichole Vencl ’15. The team will hold their first meeting before the end of January and will work through the April 22 meeting.

The team will be working to:

  • Create a Communication Plan to keep all NDC Alumni informed about the process of implementing the new plan
  • Recruit Alumni to fill positions in the new Board and Committee Structure
    • Placing a call for nominations
    • Contacting candidates to determine the best position for each
  • Develop roles and responsibilities for Alumni Association Board members
  • Propose revisions to the Constitution and By-laws to allow for implementation of the new plan
  • Present a slate of Board and Committee members and changes to the Constitution and By-laws for a vote at the Annual Business meeting

We are looking for volunteers to serve on the restructured Board and Committees. As the Transition Team works out the Nomination process inquires and recommendations can be directed to me.

Also, if you have any questions or concerns about the transition process, please contact me.
