Welcome Alumni Chapter Presidents
As an alumni chapter president, you are the lifeblood of the National Alumni Association. We count on you, to fulfill the mission of our organization and the University. We appreciate your willingness to volunteer and help promote the importance of giving back to Xavier.
Our alumni chapters are a fun way to bring together people who have a common interest in Xavier and in our mission to create a Community for Life that continues long after graduation. Your work as chapter president helps to create lifelong relationships and provide a connection back to Xavier, where it all started. You are part of the mission to support alumni, students, family and friends as they cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action.

Alumni Chapter President Responsibilities

Chapter Leadership Team
Each chapter consists of a chapter president, but some chapters establish a leadership team so all the responsibilities don’t fall on one person. A leadership team is a valuable resource when planning alumni engagement events and can also provide a succession plan as chapter president terms expire.
Alumni Chapter Resources
The chapter president is responsible for planning chapter activities and communicating with members.
