At the meeting we will be discussing the future of your Alumni Association.

Our challenge is that our Alumni Association Board needs revitalization.  Reasons for this include:

  • Several of the current board members have served long terms and would like to take a break;

  • We are not well connected to our alumni base and need to determine how to best reach and cultivate these relationships;

  • Our attendance at alumni events is diminishing and occasionally events need to be cancelled due to low attendance;

  • We are not finding interest in new alumni joining the board.

The current members believe it is time to revisit the mission and purpose of the Alumni Association and Board membership to help determine its direction for the future. 

To work toward building the future, we will dedicate this summer (June – September) to creating a new strategic plan for our Alumni Association and we are hoping you will help us identify Alumni to help guide this process.

We plan to recruit 20 individuals who will work together in groups to tackle some of these issues.  To accommodate busy schedules, we are planning:

  • Four strategic meeting sessions on-site and
  • Will encourage smaller committee work via conference calls and email. 

In order to facilitate this process the Alumni Association Board will place the following motions up for vote.

Motion to suspend the following Constitutional Articles and Bylaws until the Notre Dame College Alumni Association is able to complete a strategic plan that will include a proposal for restructuring:

Constitution - Article V – Organization

Suspend all sections until a recommendation for restructuring is completed.

Constitution – Article VI - Meetings – Sections 3 & 4

Suspend all sections until a recommendation for restructuring is completed.

Bylaws – Article I – Duties of Executive Officers – All Sections

Suspend all sections until a recommendation for restructuring is completed.

Bylaws – Article II – Duties of Board Members at Large

Suspend all sections until a recommendation for restructuring is completed.

Bylaws – Article III – Duties of Non-Elected Board Members – All Sections

Suspend all sections until a recommendation for restructuring is completed.

Bylaws – Article IV – Duties of Special Committees – All Sections

Suspend all sections until a recommendation for restructuring is completed.

Motion to allow voting via email for approval of Alumni Association Strategic Plan.

Due to the need for a strategic plan including a recommendation for restructuring the governance of the Alumni Association, the Alumni Association Board will allow a vote to be held via email to approve the strategic plan committee’s recommendation.

The vote will held as soon as the Board restructuring recommendation is completed. Ballots will be emailed to all Alumni who have provided their email address to the Alumni Relations Office. Alumni who have do not have a valid email on record but do have a valid mailing address will be sent a postcard with instructions for voting.
