Thank you for your interest in the Samford University Alumni Association’s Young Alumni Boards. Boards are located in Birmingham, Nashville, and Atlanta and were 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 per board who each serve a three-year term.

To be eligible for membership on one of the three Young Alumni Boards, a candidate must hold an academic degree from Samford University, not exceed thirty-six (36) years of age at the time membership to the Board would take effect, and submit a completed Membership Application Form. Assuming there are open positions on the Board, decisions regarding new members will be made at the designated board meetings per board.

The commitment of serving on the Board includes a minimum of two meetings per year and service on one committee per year. Members are also asked to complete a series of action items during their term as outlined in the Young Alumni Board Action Plan, including that members are encouraged to financially support Samford University and to attend alumni and non-alumni events on a regular basis.

To apply for the young alumni board, the president of each board will send an email announcing the opening of the application process.  The application process consists of an online form and emailing a resume to the Office of Alumni Programs and Annual Giving.  Below is the timeframe for each board to open the application process and when to expect these email announcements.  To ensure your correct email is saved in your alumni record at Samford, please complete the update your information form.
