Constitution of the St Lawrence University Alumni Association
Meetings: The council meets at least four (4) times each year (twice in Canton). Council members will attend the regularly scheduled meetings and be active participants in discussions on topics and issues.
Committee Work: The council's service to the University is primarily through committee structure.
Volunteerism: The Council's membership is voluntary, but constitutes a serious and important obligation. Therefore, the Council should be viewed as taking a high priority in one's professional and personal activities.
Service: The Council is organized to maintain and stimulate interest in the University and to act as a consulting body. It exists to support alumni volunteer programs, activities, and events in one's community and to help further the mission of the University (e.g. Admissions, Career Planning).It is expected that Council members will inform themselves about issues affecting the University and will communicate effectively about the issues to the alumni community.
Annual Giving: The Council may be asked to assist in the University's fund raising efforts; therefore, it is expected that members will set appropriate positive examples by financially supporting the University with an annual gift to the St. Lawrence Fund in a manner commensurate with their ability.
