Millersville University Alumni Association Committees

Whether your contribution is big or small, in time or financial support, the Alumni Association wants you to become active and engaged in your Alumni Association. If you are interested in serving on one of these committees please contact the chair(s) of the committee in which you are interested.

These committees typically meet four times a year:

Financial Planning:
If you are a "number cruncher," have we got the committee for you! Use your expertise to help us manage the Alumni Association's funds on this very important committee. This group also develops the annual Alumni Association budget, which is approved by the board, and looks for event sponsors. They also preview all benefits and services offered to alumni and make recommendations on investments and the Association's assets. Chair: Bill Martin '81.

Nominations & Awards:
Did you know that the Alumni Association gives thousands of dollars in grants and awards annually to current Millersville University students? By joining this committee, you can help review award nominations, develop award criteria and assist in the development of the board member nomination slate. Awards given out annually include Distinguished Alumni, Young Alumni Achievement, Honorary Alumni and Outstanding Volunteer Service. Chair: Joyce King '83.

Information Technology:
Are you on Facebook? Twitter? LinkedIn? Are you a member of the Millersville University Alumni Online Community? Do you have a valid email address? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are needed on this committee. We need to be where our alumni are and most of them are online! This committee seeks ways to utilize social media and the Internet to keep in touch with Millersville University alumni and increase alumni engagement. Chair: Jon Mimm '08.

Alumni Engagement:
How can the Alumni Association engage our alumni and connect them with their alma mater? This committee has multiple objectives including counseling with the University Advancement efforts, specifically the Office of Development with reunion giving, campaigns, the annual fund, planned giving, etc. This committee also works with prospective students, Alumni Regional Coordinators (including volunteer recruitment) and new on the horizon: engagement programs/events that include both students and alumni. The committee works with offices such as University Admissions, Center for Student Involvement and Leadership, Career Services, Civic Engagement and Internships, as well as the Student Alumni Association. Co-Chairs: Amy Hoffman '94, and Cheryl Youtz '69, '72M.

Alumni Events:
The Events Committee reviews, approves and hosts activities for MU alumni. Members assist with the implementation of programs and recommend ideas for increasing attendance at alumni events. They also assist with the development of activities for alumni affinity groups and the continuous improvement of event planning. The committee also works locally on events and projects with the Student Alumni Association. Co-Chairs: Kathy Focht '70.
