The Alumni and Advisory Board is an integral part of the HUWIB Executive Board, responsible for maintaining contact with HUWIB's alumni, as well as planning events to incorporate seniors and ensure their successful transition into alumni status. As the alumni liaison, this board is the point for any alumni communication on behalf of the HUWIB undergraduates and is in close contact with the HUWIB Alumni Board Communications Chair to streamline communication and cooperation between the two boards. Partnerships between the two boards will be most centered on the Advisory Board, alumni attendance and volunteering at IBC, corporate mentorship involvement, externship program coordination, exploratory trips opportunities, and shared networking events.
This board works closely with the Undergraduate Relations Chair of the HUWIB Alumni Board to facilitate monthly calls between relevant members of both boards and drive shared programming and initiatives. These include the undergraduate senior class representative selection process (post-IBC each year), IBC alumni involvement and programming, Advisory Board relations (board selection process, quarterly updates, biannual calls), and the HUWIB senior-to-alumna transition process, which will include a spring senior farewell brunch). In addition, the Alumni and Advisory Board focuses on the relationships with current seniors, and aids in the execution of senior-focused programming by the Associate Relations directors on the Membership Development Committee.
This chair plans events such as Senior Spotlight dinners, the Senior and Alumni Brunch in the spring, and other career-related and social events specifically for seniors. This Chair also oversees the Advisory Board, which consists of 5-8 women business professionals spanning multiple industries who serve as key resources for both the Undergraduate and Alumni Boards of HUWIB. The Alumni and Advisory Board Chair works with the Advisory Board Chair from the Alumni Board to maintain communication with Advisory Board members, organizes Advisory Board meetings (which take place biannually, once in person and once via a conference call) and recruits 2-4 new members of the Advisory Board each year. As the HUWIB alumni organization is in the process of growth and development, this position is pivotal in helping to shape the resources and structure of alumni involvement, and in ensuring the sustainability of the interest of seniors in the undergraduate organization.
