USC Price School of Public Policy

Alumni Board Application

Dear Fellow Trojan,

Thank you for your interest in joining the USC Price Alumni Association Board of Directors. Our diverse, dynamic group of 31 leaders serves and represents the USC Price Alumni Association, which includes all alumni of the degree programs at USC Price.

Board members are actively engaged in building a strong sense of community among our 17,000 Alumni Association members by connecting alumni with the School and each other. We support School-sponsored networking events, career fairs, and brownbag lunches, as well as mentorship, internship, and externship programs. In addition, we plan engaging programs, lectures, socials, and community service projects throughout the year. You can learn more about our organization by visiting priceschool.usc.edu/alumni/alumni-board and www.facebook.com/USCPriceAlumniAssociation.

Every Board member has the opportunity to serve two terms, with each term spanning three years. We’re seeking enthusiastic candidates who share our passion for the School and its mission to improve the quality of life for people and their communities, here and abroad. Enclosed is a membership application. As you complete the application, please keep in mind these annual, minimum expectations for Board members:

  • Commit to individual membership dues ($250);
  • Participate in community service or USC Price related events for a total of at least 20 hours annually;
  • Attend Board-sponsored events and encourage others to attend these events;
  • Participate as an active member on one Board Committee (Committees currently focus on themes including community service, fundraising, programming, and new student recruitment); and
  • Attend the three Board meetings held each year.

Please submit your application via e-mail to Kristi Patton Hasman, USC Price Director of Alumni Relations and Events, by 5:00PM Friday, March 31, 2017 at kkpatton@price.usc.edu. Applications will initially be screened by a Membership Committee comprising current Board members. After this initial screening, the entire Board will vote on new members. You will be notified of the outcome by early May 2017.

On behalf of our Board, we look forward to learning about your Trojan experience and ideas! Feel free to reach out to Kristi or any of our Board members with questions.

Best regards, and fight on!
