Alumni Association Board of Directors (AABD) Directory

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is composed of an Association President, Vice President for Engagement, Vice President for Auxiliary Groups, Vice Preident for Committees, and Secretary. As well as representatives from a number of IWU affinity groups and committees. Members appointed should provide diversity of class year, gender, race, and demographic representation, as well as skills that may be needed to better accomplish the Association's mission.

Officers serve a two year term while representatives serve a one year term, as specified by the Bylaws of the Illinois Wesleyan University Alumni Association

A Governance Committee is responsible for conducting a formal review of the Association’s Bylaws at least once every three years. The Governance Committee also periodically evaluates the AABD's strategic plan, performance, and other policies.
