Alumni Association Special Meeting Notice

Letter from Sam Stocks ’90, Alumni Association President

Using the buttons below, please find the Notice of a Special Meeting of the Members of the VMI Alumni Association, the Nomination and Election Process for the Special Meeting of the Members, the Nomination Form, and other meeting resources. The special meeting will be held June 11, 2022, at 10 a.m in Cameron Hall.

The sole purpose of the June 11 meeting is to complete the unfinished business of the April 9 meeting to elect six Directors At Large and five Regional Directors to the Board of Directors (BOD). The business of the April 9 meeting was not completed due to an effort by some in attendance to force a vote to remove members of the Board of Directors. On the advice of counsel, this attempt was determined to not be in compliance with the Alumni Association’s bylaws or the laws of Virginia, so it was officially ruled out of order.

At the June 11 meeting, you should expect an orderly vote guided by the bylaws and state law, to which we will adhere without exception. Alumni in good standing will have the opportunity to vote as described in the process.

The Nominating Committee spent weeks of exploration, review, and discussion to arrive at the BOD’s original slate. They are charged to seek out members who have been actively engaged in the VMI Alumni Association and have demonstrated a track record of involvement at the chapter level and through other activities. Using the process found within the meeting resources, additional nominations may be submitted as noted for the Nominating Committee to consider.

Other than voting on the Regional Director slate and the Director at Large positions, no other business will be considered or conducted at this meeting.

As volunteer alumni leaders for more than 99 chapters globally, we are here to support the alumni family by keeping them informed, facilitating engagement with other alumni, and to inspire support for the mission of the Institute to graduate leaders of character for the future. We will continue to remain focused on these worthy goals.
