alumni board of directors

What They Do

The Alumni Board of Directors (ABD) is a highly engaged collection of alumni representatives from each academic college, boasting diverse backgrounds, interests and regions that cover the last 5 decades of graduates from NMSU. The mission of the ABD is to promote the NMSU Alumni Association by connecting alumni and friends back to our Aggie family and help advance the University's goals, promote student success and continue to spread Aggie spirit and pride.

Members of the Board promote NMSU, connect alumni and friends, advise the Association, network with other Aggies at events and celebrations, support students, serve on committees and programs, share expertise and assist the NMSU Foundation as Ambassadors to promote engagement, development and stewardship. Board members volunteer an average of 5 hours each month, maintain an active membership in the Alumni Association, donate a minimum of $1,000 annually to the Alumni Association and participate as Aggie Ambassadors throughout the year.
