Alumni Board of Directors

HKS degree-program and executive education alumni are represented by an elected board of directors that comprises 23 volunteer members. These volunteers work to strengthen connections among HKS alumni across the globe by supporting alumni, current students, and the School.
Members, who meet twice a year in Cambridge, serve four-year terms. Board committees  typically focus on alumni networks, reunions, alumni awards, elections, communications, and career advancement.
