Board of Directors

The Southeastern Alumni Association Board of Directors serve as representatives of our entire alumni base. They assist in promoting the mission of the Association in tandem with that of the University. Members of the Board promote pride, help in student recruitment efforts, act as mentors, preserve traditions of the University, and encourage active participation in the Association.

The Nominating Committee of the Southeastern Alumni Association Board of Directors is now requesting nominations for four director positions.

Interested individuals should download the Board Member Agreement and the Board Nomination Form.

The completed nomination form and other required materials must be submitted via email no later than March 15, 2023. Incomplete nominations or nominations received after the deadline will not be accepted. Self-nominations are accepted.
