Alumni Leadership

Alumni volunteers enrich the Yale family through their leadership of groups and initiatives, creating opportunities for fellow alumni – events and programs of all kinds, happening regionally, virtually, and on campus.  

From the Yale Alumni Association Board of Governors, which guides the association overall, to leaders of groups like regional clubs and shared interest groups, to volunteers involved in community service and career networking initiatives, there's a way for you to contribute your time and talent in support of Yale.

Tools for Alumni Leaders

Supporting volunteers is what we do. We've assembled best practices, guidelines, and how-tos related to leading organizations, planning events, and communicating with your audiences.

YAA Assembly

The Yale Alumni Association Assembly , held in conjunction with the Yale Alumni Fund Convocation, is our signature program for volunteer leaders, held on campus each November. Attendees get an inside look at Yale today, honor outstanding volunteers and organizations, and engage with each other and professional staff to share best practices and new ideas.
