Speak to Groups
As an official ambassador of the Cornell Club of Cape Cod, it is important for Board members to feel confident in their ability to formally and informally speak about Cornell and the Cornell Club to a variety of individuals. While it's rare for board members to have to give big speeches, it's still important for board members to be prepared to talk about Cornell to other Cornellians.
Organize, Plan and/or Host Events
Serve on a Committee or Board
Board members have three primary roles:
1) Plan at least one alumni event per fiscal year;
2) Attend and participate in board meetings in-person or by phone (8-10 total per year) where the board discusses a variety of issues, including events, communications, governance, strategy, and relations with the University; and
3) Collaborating with other board members or non-board members to identify, recruit, and onboard new volunteers.
The Cornell Club of Cape Cod is a working board, meaning all board members have a responsibility to plan alumni events and to engage alumni. The Club is always looking for new alumni to bring to events and to find ways to engage in the life of the University and the Club. Advocating on behalf of Cornell--in person and in writing--is critical to the success of the Club.
