Alumni have a hand in guiding the future of the MIT Alumni Association, the MIT Corporation, and other leadership groups by electing new members to the Alumni Association Selection Committee (AASC). The 12 alumni who serve on the AASC are charged with reviewing nominations by alumni and then selecting the new Association board members and determining the nominations for the MIT Corporation.
In addition to voting in the AASC election, alumni are invited to nominate others for many roles. Nominations are due now for visiting committees, which review academic departments; the MIT Annual Fund Board; and the Alumni Association Awards Committee. See the range of nomination opportunities and deadlines at .
AASC voting ends February 29 at alum.mit.edu/aascb.
