Alumni Meeting Approaches

Dartmouth’s Alumni Association will be holding its annual meeting over this coming Homecoming weekend (Oct. 23) to consider, among other matters, a new constitution that has been developed by the Alumni Governance Task Force.

Look for full coverage of the new constitution in the next issue of The Dartmouth Review, but the new constitution, if approved by three-quarters of those present at the October meeting, would, among other things, transform the current Alumni Council (an un-elected body) into an Alumni “Assembly,” mandate that only alumni in the “Assembly” could be elected president of the Alumni Association, and make it more difficult for petition candidates to mount outsider campaigns for alumni Trustee elections.

Any alumni who can make it up to Hanover for Homecoming should plan on attending the meeting and making their opinion known on the new constitution.
