2012 AYA Board of Governors Excellence Awards!

Seeking Nominations for the
2012 AYA Board of Governors Excellence Awards!

Dear Yale Alumni Volunteer:

You are the best of Yale, and we know you are working hard to be the best for Yale. Thank you!

Since the implementation of the AYA Strategic Plan in 2007, volunteers everywhere have been reinvigorating traditional programs and engaging alumni in new and innovative ways. Many classes, clubs, SIGs, and G&P schools have engaged in strategic planning themselves, and there are more alumni doing more things than ever before. Whether new “out of the box” ideas or reenergized versions of Yale traditions, these programs and activities are models for excellence and alumni involvement.

For the third year, the AYA Board of Governors seeks to recognize the accomplishments of outstanding alumni groups with their Excellence Awards, to be presented at the Assembly this November 8-10.

You are warmly invited to nominate an alumni organization with which you are familiar. The awards will be vetted by the Volunteer Leadership Committee of the AYA Board using the evaluation criteria described here. There are Excellence Awards given in five major categories, including Classes, Clubs, SIGs, G&P, and overall programming. All of the information and an online nomination form can be found on the AYA website.

If you think the AYA Board should recognize an organization – and the efforts of the volunteers who make it successful – please send in a nomination right away!

The deadline for nominations is Saturday, September 15, 2012 (5:00 pm Eastern). Awards will be announced in October and presented at the AYA Assembly.

We look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for all that you do!

Mark Dollhopf
AYA Executive Director
