Leadership Opportunities

About the Council

The Rutgers Alumni Leaders Council is an assembly of volunteer alumni leaders, including members of the RUAA Board, leaders of the chartered alumni organizations, at-large members, and university partners who share in the RUAA’s vision. While the council’s members are involved with the RUAA and the university in diverse ways, their membership on the council does not represent any individual group or interest, but rather serves the entire alumni body.

The council officially convenes at least once annually, at the Alumni Leaders Conference. The Alumni Leaders Conference is generally held on or near campus in the fall.  The conference is an event where council members gather to share best practices and new ideas in alumni engagement. It is an opportunity to network with each other and university leadership. The council is also responsible for ratifying the slate of RUAA Board officers and board members annually.
