The 2021 Nomination Process
The participation of the Yale SOM Alumni Network is vital to a successful AAB nominating process. Last year our alumni network nominated a high percentage of those alumni who submitted applications.
Who is eligible to serve on the AAB? According to the Charter, anyone who has successfully completed any degree program granted by Yale SOM may serve on the AAB.
How many will be nominated? Per AAB's policies and procedures, we are looking to identify a slate of up to 2 candidates to keep the board total at its maximum 20 members.
What is the procedure for nominating a candidate? Send an email to email@example.com. Please provide the nominee's name, other identifying information (e.g., degree, class, and email address/phone number) and reasons for your nomination. All persons who are nominated will be contacted and asked if they would like to submit an application. Self-nominations are encouraged! All nominations must be received by January 15, 2021.
What is the procedure for evaluating candidates? All candidates will submit a resume and a statement of the reasons for wanting to join the AAB. They will be interviewed over the phone or video call by two members of the Nominating Committee. All committee members review the application materials and interview notes in order to propose a slate.
The work of this committee is a great pleasure and tremendous privilege. We hope you will join us!
