Are you looking for a way to give back to ECU? Are you looking for service opportunities and leadership experience? You can gain all this and more as part of the East Carolina Alumni Association Board of Directors!
We’re looking for a diverse and enthusiastic group of alumni to help strengthen their alma mater by serving on our board. All degrees and class years are welcome. New members will start on July 1, 2015 and terms will last three years. Board members are expected to maintain active membership in the association and attend four meetings per year. Board members serve on a volunteer basis.
Board members advise alumni association staff, serve on various committees, and help select scholarship and award recipients. Members also share their professional expertise and individual talents to advance ECU. Finally, board members serve as advocates for the university by encouraging alumni involvement. 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 says.
Willis’ favorite part of serving on the board is working with a team of like-minded people to continue to make ECU great.
“I most definitely recommend anyone willing to become actively engaged with the alumni association to apply to serve on the board,” Willis says. “Please do reach out to myself and/or other board members to learn about the commitment and the important impact joining will have. The alumni board is a huge outlet to connect with other Pirates as well as give back to East Carolina.”
Online applications will be accepted through December 31. Click here to apply or learn more.
