ABSAP Board of Directors

In 2010, members of ABSAP organized an Advisory Council (which became a Board of Directors with ABSAP’s incorporation) with the mission to create overall awareness of the organization, establish credibility and relevance to the field of alumni relations, provide career advancement resources to members, and demonstrate influence in education advancement in general. Four areas were identified to support this mission – 1) Membership; 2) Marketing and Communications; 3) Conference and Awards, 4) Professional Development, and 5) Benchmarking. These areas are each overseen by a member of the Board with support from other ABSAP participants.
