Central Penn College Alumni Council

Central Penn College Alumni Council

The Central Penn College Alumni Council serves as ambassadors of the college in building programs that support lifelong connections to alumni.

Central Penn’s Alumni Council is a group of alumni volunteers who lead the alumni association in its service to Central Penn College and its alumni. The council is filled with strong community and regional leaders, representative of different class years, careers and experiences.

Alumni Council Mission: Govern and oversee association planning; coordinate resources; and promote the common success of alumni and Central Penn College.

Meeting four timers per calendar year, Alumni Council serves as the governing body of the alumni association.

Alumni Council consists of up to 24 elected members, including the executive committee—president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Elected to a three-year term, council members will work together and collaborate with the alumni office to increase the visibility and vitality of Central Penn College and the alumni association. The director of alumni engagement serves as Alumni Council director as an ex officio non-voting member.
