The Alumni Board of Directors of the University of Miami Alumni Association is the governing body for the association and the more than 174,000 living alumni of the University of Miami. Service on the Alumni Board of Directors is on a volunteer basis and demonstrates the highest level of commitment from our alumni community. Members are ambassadors for the University of Miami and critical leaders in helping the Alumni Association implement strategic initiatives.

Alumni Board of Directors

The Alumni Board of Directors is comprised of nine officers, three Alumni Trustees, seven Regional Directors, fifteen Directors, two Faculty Representatives, one young alumni leadership council representative, two student directors and more than 29 past presidents. The term of service and responsibilities vary by position. Board members are nominated by fellow alumni and University administrators each year. Select nominees are recommended by the UM Alumni Association Nominations Committee to the entire Alumni Board of Directors and Alumni Council for approval. Alumni Trustees are chosen separately by the University's Board of Trustees' Trustee Service Committee. The Alumni Board of Directors meets three times annually.

The Alumni Board of Directors works to engage alumni globally and connect them back to their alma mater. One of the recent accomplishments of the Alumni Board include development of the official UM Story brochure to highlight the University’s success over the past 90 years and tell the story of UM’s resilience, humility, and desire to help the community.

Alumni Council

The Alumni Council is the representative body of the Association and consists of the President and President-Elect of each affiliate group including ’Canes Communities, special interest groups, and school/college associations.  The Alumni Council as a whole is responsible for electing directors, revoking the charters of affiliate groups, and adopting the constitution and amendments thereto.
