Alumni Association Board of Directors
A message from board President Angie Sharp '08
The Augustana Alumni Association’s Board of Directors represents YOU.
Members voluntarily give their time, treasure, and talent for three to six years and meet on campus twice a year to hear updates from our alma mater, brainstorm ideas, and work on projects/initiatives that will help students, engage alumni, and improve Augustana’s mission.
Do you want to join us? Nominate yourself or someone you know who would like to be part of this special group of #LoyalVikings.
If you have any questions about the work or responsibilities of the board, feel free to email me.
