The YIA’s activities are mostly organized through its committees. To get involved with one or more of our committees, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership Committee: This committee will develop the YIA’s membership structure, taking into account national, regional and international considerations. It will plan publicity and outreach, and the recruitment and retention of members around the world. It will help model alumni relations in countries that lack this tradition.
University Relations Committee: The members of this group will create a bridge between the YIA and the Yale campus by developing relationships with the university and faculty, and liaising with student campus organizations.
Programming Committee: This committee involves leading and developing alumni volunteers organizing events in different parts of the world. Events that further the mission and goals of the YIA include joint ventures among different Yale communities (local Yale clubs and alumni Shared Interest Groups), ISO reunions on campus, international mentoring schemes, etc.
Communications Committee: This committee will strengthen the YIA website and social media presence. It will explore innovative conferencing technologies for connecting a group that is spread around the world.
Governance Committee: as this becomes applicable to the YIA, this committee will file charter documents (certificate of inc. and bylaws), and oversee adherence to bylaws, mission and statutory requirements.
