The Alumnae Association’s leadership will be that of an Advisory Board consisting of the following: Director of Alumnae Relations, Class Representatives and Event Committee Members. The Director of Alumnae Relations will oversee all general functions of the Association. Each Class shall have at least one Class Representative to act as the liaison between the Director and fellow classmates. Furthermore, a committee shall be formed for each event, and all committee members will be a part of the Advisory Board.
Class Representatives will act as the liaison between their class and the Alumnae Association. They shall be responsible for reporting newsworthy items to the Director of Alumnae Relations for the magazine publication, helping secure Annual Fund gifts, initiating procedures for class reunions, recommending and/or recruiting volunteers for various committees, events and leadership positions or Alumnae Association recognition.
It is the intent of the Alumnae Association that committees will be formed to ensure leadership for all events, awards, needs of the Alumnae Association and St. Joseph’s Academy. Committees include, but are not limited to, Alumnae Annual Fund, Reunion Committees, Distinguished Alumnae Award Committee, Fashion Show, Trivia Night, Alumnae Mass and Brunch, Golf Tournament, Fall Harvest, and the JACS program.
The Alumnae Association will have a minimum of two meetings a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. All are invited to attend. Topics will include updates of past events, vision of future events, comments by the Advisory Board, and any roundtable discussion that needs to be addressed.
