The Alumni Board

The Lees-McRae College Alumni Association Board promotes the welfare of Lees-McRae College and facilitates the exchange of ideas between the College and its alumni. By holding four slated meetings each year, the Board of Directors stay informed about College programs, facilities and concerns. They participate in discussions with students, administrators and faculty members and, thereby, provide knowledgeable leadership in representing Lees-McRae to alumni and others.

The Alumni Board consists of the President, the President Elect, the Vice President, the Secretary, student representatives, faculty/staff representatives, and alumni directors from a wide variety of decades.

There are six active committees that make up the Board: Executive, Nominating and Awards, Special Events, Advancement, Admissions and Student Affairs.
