Alumni Association

Alumni Leadership Council

Alumni Council Committees

Nominations Committee (Alumni)

Nominations Committee (Alumni)

The Nominations Committee prepares slates of nominees to fill vacancies on committees and candidates for election to the Alumni Executive Board and assumes any additional responsibilities as determined by the executive board. The committee usually meets during Alumni Council Weekend and one other weekend in the spring.
Factors considered by the committee include:

  • known active participation in alumni affairs;
  • committee balance that represents Oberlin’s diverse community as well as age/decade distribution;
  • geographic distribution;
  • committee experience;
  • experience/“new-blood” balance; and
  • whether the potential nominee has made an annual financial contribution.
