The University of Mississippi Alumni Association established the Black Alumni Advisory Council in 1988 as a vehicle by which the University’s black alumni would have a direct link to the Association’s governing board. Initially, council appointments were based on stated interests and voluntary willingness to serve from the black alumni population.
Since the council is advisory to the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association Board, the Executive Committee will appoint new or additional members from persons recommended by the existing council.
The Council Chair will be a member of the Black Alumni Advisory Council and will serve as Chair at least one year but no more than a two-year term. Chair appointments will be made by the Executive Committee from persons recommended by the existing Council. Chair recommendations must be received by the Executive Committee at least one week prior to the fall meeting of the Alumni Association Board of Directors. The Chair will recommend his/her Vice Chair who shall be approved by the Executive Committee. Upon completion of the Chair’s term, said Vice Chair will become Chair and serve at least one year, but no more than a two-year term.
