Dear fellow Grizzlies,
It’s hard to believe that we are already into February, and despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic – the work of our Alumni Association Executive Council continues to move ahead.
As a council we meet four times a year, and act as an advisory body to Georgian. The college ensures we are kept up-to-date on what is happening at our alma mater, and we act as representatives of our global alumni community – providing feedback and input which is regularly shared with the appropriate programs and leaders.
We have several members of our council who will complete their terms this June, and we are now accepting applications to fill these council vacancies. The new two-year council terms will begin in September 2021.
Are you a proud Georgian graduate, looking for meaningful ways to engage with our college? Would you like to leverage your alumni relationships to support the efforts of our college and alumni-related priorities? If you are interested in joining this dynamic group, please complete the Georgian College Alumni Association Executive Council application form and submit this, along with your cover letter and resumé, to email@example.com.
Our council is strongly committed to diversity and especially welcomes applications from racialized persons, persons of colour, women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2S+ persons, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
Arjun (class of 2007)
Chair, Alumni Association Executive Council
