Agnes Scott ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION - Here to Connect YOU!
The mission of the Agnes Scott College Alumnae Association is to represent the over 14,000 living alumnae* of Agnes Scott College, connecting alumnae to one another and to the college. 

*Including almost 400 alumni from co-educational post-baccalaureate and graduate school programs (as required by law).

PROPOSED REVISIONS TO THE ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS
The mission of the Agnes Scott Alumnae Association is to connect Scotties to one another and to the college. The association represents and serves every Scottie once they are no longer a student. Every Agnes Scott alum is a member; there are no fees or dues to join.

We invite you to review the current Association's Constitution and By-Laws here, (last updated in 2017-18). As with all living documents, we continue to revise and refine these foundational documents. An update is being proposed this year, and will be voted upon at Alumnae Weekend 2021. Find the proposed revision here, as well as a summary of the changes, here.

The Annual Meeting of the Alumnae Association occurs every year during Alumnae Weekend. Members of the Association who cannot attend the annual meeting, but wish to vote, may vote by proxy.

Alumnae Association Board of Directors

The Alumnae Association is led by the Alumnae Association Board of Directors, commonly known as “the Alumnae Board.” The board supports the mission of the Alumnae Association, and provides valuable insights from the alumnae perspective to the college. In particular, the Alumnae Board partners with the Office of Alumnae Relations on alumnae events and initiatives, and engagement with the college.

New board members are invited to serve for a three-year term; slates of incoming directors, as well as the nominee for president-elect, are voted upon during the Annual Meeting of the Alumnae Association. Board members are chosen with the purpose of representing every decade of living alumnae, as well as the rich diversity of our alumnae community.
