At the University of Guelph Alumni Association, fostering a culture of inclusion is an organizational imperative. The UGAA invites and encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in organizational leadership, who may contribute to further diversification of the UGAA.
The University of Guelph Alumni Association (UGAA) is a global community of U of G alumni with a mission to support the University of Guelph. It is governed by a Board of Directors - ten directors elected from among the alumni body, through a criteria-based nomination and selection process. Nominations are assessed by the UGAA Nomination Committee. The recommended candidates are presented to the board for approval and brought forward to the membership at the Annual General Meeting.
The Board seeks competencies and diversity that will contribute to effective governance and broad representation across the full population of the alumni body. Candidates are selected on a number of skills and experiences including the following: board governance, community involvement, strategic planning, communications, business acumen, marketing, finance and fundraising.
Self-nominations are welcome.
