Governing Board

The University of Arizona Alumni Association’s governing board is comprised of up to 23 directors who are responsible for the management and corporate affairs of the association, including oversight of the budget and financial investments. This board is a 501(c)(3) non-profit board incorporated in Arizona. 

The governing board works through a committee structure that oversees the association’s strategic plan and the various programming areas of the Alumni Association, which are designed to establish a lifelong relationship that begins with our current students and continues to ensure a "Wildcat for Life" tradition that keeps alumni connected to the UA and their colleges.

Executive Officers/Executive Committee

The officers of the association are: the chair, chair-elect, the vice-chair/secretary and the most recent past chair available to serve. Under the association’s bylaws, the vice-chair/secretary position is in a line of automatic succession to assume the positions of chair-elect, chair, and then past chair. The governing board has established a succession planning policy that encourages current governing board members to consider leadership positions.
