Message from Lia Evans, Director of Alumni and Annual Fund
The Akron Law Alumni Association (“LAA”) Board of Directors has a dedicated position on its Board for a student director. This unique and valuable opportunity provides the student director a chance to become involved in alumni leadership and alumni activities with Akron Law. The student director represents Akron Law students to the LAA Board and works with the Board to identify ways in which students and alumni may work and communicate together for the benefit of both groups.
The student director serves in an ex-officio capacity and is expected to attend all Board meetings which are held at the School of Law on a bi-monthly basis throughout the academic year (i.e., August, October, December, February, and April). The Board meetings begin at 4 p.m. and generally last for one and a half hours.
Applications for the 2013-14 student director to the LAA Board of Directors will be accepted from 2013-14 upper division law students who are in good standing. Applications should include: (1) a current resume of the student; (2) a brief statement as to why the student believes that he or she should be selected to serve on the LAA Board; and (3) a brief statement as to why he or she wants to serve on the LAA Board.
The LAA Board’s executive committee will review the application materials and select a maximum of three students who will be invited to make a two-minute presentation to the Board at its April 9, 2013 meeting. Students interested in being considered for this position should forward their application materials no later than Thursday, April 4 to Sue Staats in the Office of External Programs (either in hard copy form to Ms. Staats in the Office of External Programs which is located in the Dean’s Suite or electronic form to Ms. Staats at email@example.com).
