Association of Yale Alumni Board of Governors
Drawn largely from the representative body of the AYA Assembly, the Board of Governors works with the University administration and the AYA staff to set priorities for and guide the work of the AYA. The group was established following the formal adoption of the AYA Constitution in 1972. Made up of 24 elected and appointed members and a number of members ex officio, the AYA Board accomplishes much of its work through several focused committees. Elected and appointed members serve three-year terms, and the Board’s four officers – Chair, Vice-Chair, and two executive officers – serve one or two-year terms.
