    Nominations for GAA Board

The General Alumni Association's Committee on Nominations and Elections will convene at the College in November to draft a slate of nominees for the vacant seats on the GAA Board of Directors. The deadline for submitting nominations to Patrick L. McCarthy '63, GAA executive secretary, is Tuesday, Oct. 1. Those chosen will assume office on July 1, 2003.

In accordance with the GAA bylaws, the committee members will nominate a president, a president-elect and three vice presidents. They will also nominate 15 to 20 directors, 10 of whom will come from a specific class, beginning with one nominee from each third preceding class as follows: 2003, 2000, 1997, 1994, 1991, 1988, 1985, 1982, 1979, 1976.

In addition, between five and 10 directors will be nominated on an at-large basis—that is, with no specific reference to class. It should be noted that there is no limit to the number of names that can be submitted for consideration.

Each recommendation should be accompanied by the following information:

  • a list of offices each nominee has held as a graduate
  • a list of outstanding contributions made during his or her term of office
  • a list of committees or projects with which the graduate has been involved, specifying significant accomplishments made in connection with his or her own involvement
  • any other outstanding service or contribution to the College
  • any other information regarding the candidate that could be used in an announcement in the event that the candidate is nominated
