We believe the alumni of the GSM are a dynamic and powerful network, one that we are determined to nurture, provide resources for and among, and engage through events and volunteerism.

The board is a select group of leaders who represent the alumni population to the leadership at the school, and in turn represent the best of what the alumni community has to offer to the public.

  • Attend at least 3 GSM events per year to represent the alumni population
  • Fulfill 3-year term with consistent participation.
Benefits / Opportunities
  • Great networking with fellow board members & alumni volunteers from other classes/programs. Find your next job. Find a lead for a new job for your spouse/best friend /sibling. Find a co-entrepreneur for your next endeavor. Deeper connections than simply attending events. Plus, we’re fun people.
  • Each board meeting is held in a fun/unique location. Get out of your routine!
