Call for Nominations of New National Alumni Officers for 2017-2019

DUNAA SEAL

It is time to elect the new national officers for the alumni association. Please read the announcement from our Nomination Chair

My Fellow Dillard Alums:
This is a call-to-action. As we get closer to the new year, we will be electing new leaders to DUNAA’s National Executive Board.

We need the involvement of all alumni. That is, we need members to become ‘financial’ and “run” for office. We need those current financial alums to encourage other alumni to become both financially and active in DUNAA.

I’m asking each chapter president and every alumnus reading this to please encourage someone in your chapter to serve in an office, please consider ‘running’ for one of the offices yourself. The DUNAA Executive positions are listed below. Also, for your convenience please review the attachments including the nominations & elections timeline along with nomination forms.

*Please note: The new close of nominations date is: January 1, 2017 .
