National Board of Directors Application
Days Left
to Enter

The National Board of Directors is the chief governing body of the FSU Alumni Association, representing the interests of all alumni. The Board of Directors has the responsibility to ensure the success of the association through the approval of an annual budget, setting policy, following the strategic plan, and providing input, guidance, oversight and expertise.

We are accepting applications through January 7, 2024, to serve as a national director.



  • Directors may serve up to two 3-year terms and are expected to participate in various board committees based upon their expertise, skillsets and interest levels.
  • Directors are expected to be active and participatory, not just in meetings but also as ambassadors and representatives of the FSU Alumni Association in their home areas.
  • Directors must attend three meetings per fiscal year, held in Tallahassee. Directors are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenditures.


The board selection process is very competitive and many applicants apply for multiple years before being selected. Directors are selected by members of the Board Development Committee in an in-depth eight-month process. The board requests that applicants not contact current board members after applying to solicit support for their candidacy. The Florida State University Alumni Association reserves the right to verify that applicants meet the criteria and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any applicants for any reason.

If you are interested in serving on our National Board of Directors, we encourage you to complete this application by January 7, 2024. If you have any questions, please contact Aimee Wirth, Director of Board Relations, at
