    Governance Positions

    Young Alumni Trustee

    Nominations for young alumni trustee are solicited from Alumni Association Council members, alumni at large, college staff and faculty, and other members of the Colorado College community.

    The young alumni trustee is approved by the CC Board of Trustees for a term of two years upon the nomination of the AAC Nominations and Awards Committee and the approval of the Board of Trustees Governance Committee. Candidates for young alumni trustee should have graduated within the past three years. They must be able to complete the two-year term within five years of graduation.

    Elected Alumni Trustee Candidates

    Nominations are solicited from Alumni Association Council members, alumni at large, college staff and faculty, and other members of the Colorado College community. The committee considers new nominations, as well as nominees held over from previous cycles. 

    The selection criteria for each election cycle are developed in cooperation with both the President’s Office and the Board of Trustees Governance Committee. Criteria are:

    • Diversity
    • Strong background with respect to broader issues, including leadership in other for profit and not for profit organizations
    • Demonstrated service and leadership in service to the college
    • General availability to commit to the work of the Board of Trustees and to do the job well
    • Understanding of the fiduciary responsibilities and support for the President of the college
    • Ability to responsibly and effectively deal with issues that come before the Board of Trustees and committees of the Board
    • Philanthropic commitment to the college
    • Ability to articulate, advocate, and advance issues pertaining to alumni

    Candidates for the EAT ballot are advanced to the Alumni Association Council for approval by the Nominations and Awards Committee and are chosen for their proven dedication to Colorado College, as well as their professional backgrounds and personal accomplishments. Candidates are voted on by CC's alumni-at-large and serve a non-renewable six-year term. Elected alumni trustees' input and energy are fully used and appreciated in the work of the Board of Trustees.

    Alumni Association Council Members

    Members of the Alumni Association Council are chosen from alumni who have demonstrated their leadership skills and commitment to CC.  New members are selected for  the AAC for an initial two-year term, and may serve a total of eight years.  Members should be prepared to participate and be visible in CC events and activities in their geographic regions as representatives and advocates of CC. They serve on committees and participate in two yearly meetings, one of which is an on-campus weekend in the spring. The AAC strives to reflect the rich diversity of the college in its membership.

    Selections are advanced for approval to the Alumni Association Council by the AAC Governance Committee.
