Young Alumni Board Membership Application

Thank you for your interest in the Samford University Alumni Association Young Alumni Board. The Board was formed to support the continued development of quality young alumni and giving programs at Samford University. The Board consists of a maximum of 25 members who each serve a three year term.

To be eligible for membership on the Young Alumni Board, a candidate must hold an academic degree from Samford University, earned within 10 years of the beginning of the current calendar year, not exceed forty (40) years of age at the time membership to the Board would take effect, and submit a completed Membership Application Form.
