Communicated by Neil Pundit, President, firstname.lastname@example.org
Process and Criteria for elevation to Distinguished Alum are described following the listing.
Elevation to Distinguished Alum status is through a nomination process, evaluation and recommendation, and final approval by the Board of Directors of the Association.
Any member may nominate. Endorsement by a Distinguished Member or by a past President is highly desirable but not necessary. The nomination must be addressed to the Chair of the ADVBD or the President. Evaluation is done by the Advisory Board which sums up its recommendation to the BOD which makes the final decision. Chair of the ADVBD works with the Nominator to seek additional information as needed, and conveys the BOD decision to the Nominator. For approved nominees the Chair of the ADVBD seeks a citation of 25 words or less from the nominator and/or the nominee. The criteria include: accomplishments beyond normal performance of duty in academic or professional fields; and service or contributions to charitable causes including the Association, and the Alma Mater. The Distinguished Alum is honored by a certificate, and listed on the website.
Note: The Chair of the ADVBD may be contacted for a fuller description of the process and the criteria.
