Alumni Enjoying Award CeremonyThe BAC Alumni Council Transition Team has announced the 2018 Alumni Council slate of candidates.

The Transition Team received many applications from engaged BAC alumni and it was a tough decision to narrow them down to the slate. The announced slate meets the requirements of the recently adopted Alumni Association Constitution. Please note that there are only 12 candidates on the slate of the 13 electable positions. One seat will remain open for a Landscape Architecture alumnus/a until 2019. The remaining two seats on the 15 person Council are the non-voting appointed Student representative and Alumni Trustee representative.

The Alumni Association will vote on the slate as a whole from September 25 through October 11. Once approved, the newly formed Alumni Council will be introduced at the October 19 Leadership Awards Reception and officially take office on November 1, 2018.
