Your alma mater is looking for three dynamic alumni to join the Board of Directors of our Alumni Association. As a board member, you will provide leadership and expertise, to support the association’s mandate, engage with alumni across the country and reconnect with the University community.

The ideal candidates will add to the diversity of faculties represented on the board. Experience in serving on boards, past participation in the University of Ottawa events and bilingualism (at least functional) will also be considered as assets.

Specifically, we are looking for the following: one person with communications and public affairs experience; another with change management, innovation and stakeholder engagement experience; and a third with business administration experience. 

If you would like to submit your name or nominate a fellow alumnus or alumna, email your resumé, along with a covering letter to the president at alumni.president@uOttawa.ca.

The deadline to submit nominations is August 22, 2017.

Who we are:

The Board of Directors is made up of 16 alumni representing various regions across Canada. Board members go through a rigorous selection process and are appointed for a two year term.

We are committed volunteers from a wide variety of professions. We bring forward innovative ideas to help organize, finance and support various activities and services for all alumni through our work within the Board committees (Executive, Governance, Outreach and Finance).

Read our Constitution.
