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 .

We are collecting your feedback on how we can improve events and messaging related to alumni giving. Typically, this survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete. If you have any questions, please contact Erica M. Williams, Alumni Giving Initiative Chairperson at email@example.com.
On behalf of the Dillard University National Alumni Association I would like to congratulate all alums who participated in the recent surge to meet the university’s fundraising and alumni participation goals for FY 2015-2016. Congratulations also to those who had contributed before the surge. This is a testament to what we can do when we really focus on the most important matters facing our Alma Mater. We should be proud of this achievement.”
